3.          SUPPLY OF SERVICES

In supplying the Services, we shall:

3.1           perform the Services with reasonable care and skill;

3.2       not disclose any confidential information in respect of each Patient to the Client, save as otherwise agreed by, and with the express consent and authority of, the Patient;

3.3           appoint a representative that the Client and Patients can contact to help co-ordinate the provision of any of the Services;

4.             CLIENT’S OBLIGATIONS

4.1           The Client shall:

(a)             co-operate with us in all matters relating to the Services;

(b)            provide, in a timely manner, such information as we may reasonably require, and ensure that it is accurate in all material respects;

(c)             notify us of any risk factors that it is aware of and considers or ought to know in accordance with the NHS Guidelines, may apply in relation to the provision of the Services.  Such risk factors may include factors which would indicate it would be better for Services to take place elsewhere than at the Client’s premises, including by remote digital means. On receipt of any such risk factors, we shall then apply our own applicable policies to assess the situation, such as our risk assessment process and/or lone worker policy;

(d)            ask the Patients contact us directly to arrange a Test.  However, if the Client does provide us with contact details for a Patient, it shall ensure that it has appropriate and valid consents and permissions from Patients to enable us to contact Patients  to book a Test. We shall be under no obligation to carry out a Test if the Client has not consented either to contact by us or to the Test itself;

(e)            procure that all Patients are given a copy of the Handbook that may be created (as may be amended from time to time) and request adherence to our policies set out in it; and

(f)             keep confidential, safe and secure at all times the Client’s account, login and password data in respect of the HealthClic portal.

4.2           If our performance of our obligations under the Contract is prevented or delayed by any act or omission of the Client, its agents, subcontractors, consultants or employees, we shall:

(a)             not be liable for any costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by the Client that arise directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay;

(b)            be entitled to payment of the Fee despite any such prevention or delay; and

(c)             be entitled to recover any additional costs, charges, expenses or losses we sustain or incur that arise directly or indirectly from such prevention or delay.

5.             ALTERNATIVE SERVICES FOR PATIENTS

5.1           If the Client wishes to have or is notified by any of the Patients at any stage that any of them wish to have or require more input from us than is anticipated when this Contract was first entered into, then we will discuss the provision of alternative services and applicable fees for such services with the Client, and provide a further Proposal for signature by the Client if the terms are acceptable.

6.             HANDBOOK

6.1           Subject to receipt of the Fee, we hereby grant to the Client a non-exclusive, perpetual, royalty free right and licence to review, use and reproduce the Handbook for the Client’s internal business purposes.  For the avoidance of doubt, the Client has no right to share, distribute or publish the Handbook outside of its organisation without our prior written consent.

6.2           In exercising the right to reproduce the Handbook under clause 6.1, the Client shall not, and shall procure that its employees and agents shall not remove our logo and/or copyright statement that we have included within the Handbook.

7.             TESTS

7.1           The location for the Test will be  set out in the Proposal, unless otherwise agreed. Accordingly, the Test could be carried out onsite at the Client’s premises, offsite, or the Test could be sent to the Patient to be carried out at the Patient’s home if for example the Patient is self-isolating.

7.2           The Client shall and shall procure that the Patient or any third party administering the Test complies with the instructions provided.  If any Test Result is a fail due to a failure to administer the Test properly and/or any damage that occurs when the Test is returned to us, we shall notify the Client accordingly and provide a further Test.

7.3           We shall provide the Test Results to the Patient only.  Our testing laboratory shall notify any positive test to Public Health England.

7.4           The Client notes and accepts the following principles:

(a)             a positive IgG antibodies Test Result does not confirm any protection towards future infection from Covid-19 as it is not yet known whether there is any such protection and, if there is, how long such protection may last;

(b)            whilst PCR COVID-19 swab testing is generally considered to be extremely accurate and is approved by PHE, the PCR Test is a throat/nasal swab to test for the active current presence of Covid-19 only; for which there is incubation period of up to approximately 14 days after exposure;

(c)             a negative Test Result does not mean that the Patient is not carrying Covid-19 or will not contract Covid-19; all a negative result definitively confirms is that there was no COVID-19 on the swab which could mean that the Patient has been swabbed at a time when there were no viruses there because it is too early to detect or because the Patient has already recovered or did not swab effectively; it is still possible to catch Covid-19 at any time;

(d)            asymptomatic Patients also carry Covid-19;

(e)            regardless of their Test Result, Patients must always follow the NHS Guidelines and the relevant local health authority’s guidelines regarding COVID-19 and self-isolation; even a Patient with a negative Test Result should follow the HealthClic doctor’s advice and the NHS Guidelines;

(f)             it is the Client’s responsibility to understand and adhere to the guidelines of the relevant health authority in any country in which the Client’s staff operate/work;

(g)             it is the Client’s responsibility to monitor regularly the NHS Guidelines for changes and updates;

(h)            if the Patients adhere to the NHS Guidelines, the Handbook and the HealthClic doctor’s advice, the chance of minimising the spread of Covid-19 is improved but this cannot be guaranteed and we give no warranties or representations in this regard;

(i)              we cannot definitively confirm when Patients should return to work or guarantee that Patients will not be infective; ultimately, the final decision to allow staff back to work is in the discretion of the Client in accordance with the HealthClic doctor’s advice, the Test Results, NHS Guidelines, and the Client’s own policies and procedures;

(j)              in the absence of a face-to-face consultation, the HealthClic doctor can only provide symptomatic advice and treatment, and provide self-isolation guidelines for Patients which should be followed regardless of the Test Result; and

(k)             the Client should consult and ensure that its staff comply with the following official guidelines in the UK:

  • https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
  • https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/what-to-do-if-you-or-someone-you-live-with-has-coronavirus-symptoms/

·     https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection#symptoms

7.5           We shall have no liability for any use made of the information provided in the Test Result, any decisions taken, or for any costs incurred by the Client and/or the Patient in consequence of such use, advice or decisions.

7.6           The Test should be used as a convenient and confidential way of getting tested quickly for a COVID-19 infection. The Test and the Test Result are not intended to replace medical advice, nor should they be used as a full diagnosis, or to prescribe medication without consulting an appropriate medical professional.

8.             FEES AND PAYMENT

8.1           In consideration of the provision of the Services, the Client shall pay the Fees in accordance with this clause 8.

8.2           All amounts payable by the Client exclude amounts in respect of value added tax, which the Client shall additionally be liable to pay to us at the prevailing rate (if applicable).

8.3           The Client shall pay each undisputed invoice due and submitted to it within 15 days of receipt to a bank account nominated in writing by us.

8.4           The Client shall raise any dispute concerning invoices with us within 10 days of receipt failing which the invoice shall be payable in accordance with clause 8.3.  We shall work with the Client to try to  resolve disputes concerning disputed invoices in good faith and within 30 days of the date of the relevant invoice.

8.5           If the Client fails to make any payment due under this Contract by the due date for payment, then, without limiting our remedies under clause 10:

(a)         we shall charge interest on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% per annum above the Bank of England’s base rate from time to time but at 4% per annum for any period when that base rate is below 0%. Such interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. The Client shall pay the interest together with the overdue amount; and

(b)        we may suspend all Services until payment has been made in full.

8.6           Subject to clause 8.4, all amounts due under this Contract shall be paid by the Client in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding.

9.             LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

9.1           Nothing in this Contract shall limit or exclude our liability for:

(a)             death or personal injury caused by its negligence, or the negligence of its personnel, agents or subcontractors;

(b)            fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation; and

(c)             breach of the terms implied by section 2 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 (title and quiet possession) or any other liability which cannot be limited or excluded by applicable law.

9.2           Subject to clause 9.1, we shall not be liable to the Client, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), for breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract for:

(a)             loss of profits;

(b)            loss of sales or business;

(c)             loss of agreements or contracts;

(d)            loss of anticipated savings;

(e)            loss of use or corruption of software, data or information;

(f)             loss of or damage to goodwill;

(g)             wasted expenditure; and

(h)            any indirect or consequential loss.

9.3           We disclaim and exclude any and all liability under or in connection with or arising out of the Tests including (for example only) in respect of:

(a)             incorrect, inaccurate, false or misleading Test Results;

(b)            a Patient’s failure to advise the Client accurately of the Patient’s results; and/or

(c)             any failure to comply with or adhere to the principles in clause 7 above.

9.4           Subject to clause 9.1, our total liability to the Client, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with this Contract shall be limited to one hundred per cent (100%) of the Fee paid under the Proposal.

9.5           The conditions implied by sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act 1982 are, to the fullest extent permitted by law, excluded from the Contract.

10.3        On termination of this Contract for whatever reason:
