FAQs

Appointments

  • Browse Services: Explore our services and browse the profiles of our Perci Professionals. Once you have found a professional who suits your needs, select their initial consultation and choose a time and date that works for you. An appointment is confirmed once payment is received.
  • Be guided by a Perci Expert: Our team of qualified cancer nurses are expertly placed to help you find the right professional. You can have a free 20-mins video phone call to discuss which treatment is best suited to your individual needs.
  • Once you have booked an appointment you will be sent an email confirmation containing a link which can be clicked to access your appointment. You will also be sent a reminder of your call, which has the link too.
  • Alternatively, you can access your appointments by visiting ‘Appointment Information’ when you are logged into your account on the Perci Health website.
  • Perci Health can be accessed via the internet, whether you are using a laptop, tablet or mobile phone, as long as you have a camera and microphone (all smartphones have these features). This will allow you and your chosen professional to see and hear one another.
If the points above aren’t proving useful and you are having technical issues prior to your appointment, please email [email protected] and we will do our best to assist you.

To ensure all our customers are able to access our professionals, we have rules around cancelling and rescheduling appointments.

  • Cancelling Appointment:

    If you no longer require your appointment please ensure you give us over 48-hours notice, this will ensure you receive a full refund. Please note, if you cancel your appointment within 48-hours of the allotted appointment time you may be subject to a fee.

    To cancel your appointment, go to the ‘Manage appointments’ section of your account. You’ll find options to ‘Reschedule’ or ‘Cancel’ any upcoming bookings you have. Alternatively, you can email our customer success team, [email protected], who will be happy to assist you with any issues surrounding cancellations.

  • Rescheduling Appointment:

    If you are unable to attend your appointment due to unforeseen circumstances, we offer the ability to reschedule your appointment free of charge. You can reschedule each appointment once without incurring a fee. To do this please go to your account and click “Manage appointment”.

  • Don’t worry if you are running a little late, we know delays can happen.
  • Please contact the professional you’re due to meet to let them know what time to expect you. You can do this in the “Appointment Information” area of your profile, where the call takes place.
  • Please note if you are running more than 15-mins late, your appointment will be rescheduled.
  • Your professional will wait 15-mins, if you do not join the call in this time the appointment will be cancelled. You will be subject to a charge in this case (please see the missed appointment policy below).
  • You will be sent two email reminders prior to your appointment. The first will allow you enough time to cancel if you need to. The second is two hours before to prompt you to join.
  • However, if you do miss your appointment without any notification, as a rule Perci Professionals charge the full appointment amount.
  • However, we do understand that there are unforeseen circumstances and if you would like to discuss the reason for your cancellation further, please contact our customer success team. They will be happy to explain your reasoning directly with the professional.
  • Perci Professionals will always aim to be on time, but on rare occasions they may be subject to unexpected situations in their work, please do allow them 5-mins flexibility.
  • If the professional is running more than 15-mins late they will give you the option to reschedule. This message will be sent as an onsite notification in the “Appointment information” area where your call takes place.
  • If you would prefer to attend your appointment with a guest that’s fine by us. When you log in to your appointment please introduce yourself and guest.
  • Unfortunately someone cannot dial in separately so you will need to be in the same room. We are working on improving this.

Services

We only work with highly qualified healthcare professionals with extensive experience working with cancer patients.

  • We avoid grouping our customers based on their diagnosis, and instead focus on providing truly personalised care and treating each person as an individual.
  • Our services are organised around the type of problem our professionals are solving because many services can benefit people no matter which type of cancer they have.
  • We also want to ensure our services are accessible by those with rarer types of cancer who sometimes find it hard to find personalised support.
  • We are only able to provide services to overseas patients if the professional booked has the specific insurance which covers that country. Please make your country of residence known when booking with a Perci Professional so they can confirm if they are able to treat you.
  • We don’t currently provide interpreters but some of our Professionals speak multiple languages and have the languages they are fluent in visible on their profile pages.

Our services are for all people affected by cancer. We can support people at all stages of cancer, focusing on your wellbeing. Our services are also available to friends, family members and carers looking to support their loved one and themselves.

Payment

  • You will be asked to pay the full appointment cost upfront at the time of booking, this is done through our website and all payments are secure. We accept all major credit (Visa, Mastercard & Amex) and debit cards along with apple Pay/Google Pay.
  • Please note your appointment booking is only confirmed once payment has been successfully made.

We are working towards becoming a recognised provider by all major private medical insurers. It may be that you’re currently able to use your insurance to see a selection of our professionals, however for the most up-to-date information please contact our Customer Success Team. Please be aware, if your chosen professional does accept insurance payments, you will be required to provide a pre-authorisation number before booking an appointment.

Currently our services are not covered by the NHS, if you require one of these services please speak to your GP.
