Limitations of Liability
Claire primarily aims to educate and motivate clients to assume more personal responsibility for their health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle, and diet. While people generally experience greater health and wellness as a result of embracing a healthier attitude, lifestyle, and diet, Claire cannot promise or guarantee greater health or wellness.
Any advice provided by Claire is not intended to replace the relationship with your GP or other registered medical profession. Claire is not and does not hold herself out to be a GP or other medical professional. The scope of Claire’s advice does not include treatment or diagnosis of illnesses or disorders and Claire cannot be held liable for failure to diagnose or treat an illness, nor is she liable for failure to prevent future illness.
If you have any health concerns, experience any unusual symptoms or require medical attention you must seek advice from your GP or a registered medical professional without delay and whether or not you receive advice from Claire.
It is your responsibility to provide Claire with a complete and accurate account of any medical conditions that you may have and any medications that you are taking. You must inform Claire of any changes to your medical condition during the course of your consultations. Claire cannot be held liable in any way for any issues arising as a result of undeclared or unknown medical conditions.
Any discussion of medication in the course of a consultation with Claire is for the purpose only of providing a complete history of medication that the client is taking. Claire cannot advise you on the suitability of medication, dosage or possible interactions between nutritional advice and medication. This should be discussed with your GP or other registered medical professional.
Nothing in these terms excludes Claire’s liability for death or personal injury arising from Claire’s negligence, or fraud or misrepresentation or any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by English law.
