Terms and conditions

Please also see our privacy policy for more information about use of information and data security.

Use of online forms

These are provided as an easier way for patients already being seen or treated by the service. They should not be used for diagnostic purposes and they do not replace competent clinical assessment. No patient identifiable information should be included and anyone invited to complete them will have been given a unique ID.

Use of rating scales

If you use any rating scales, please be aware that decisions about diagnosis, severity of symptoms, and treatment remains with the person overseeing the patient's care. We cannot be responsible for any decisions being made by third parties and without express advice from the Advanced Interventions Service.

Guidelines and algorithms

These are intended to guide and inform clinical decisions about treatment. It is rarely advisable to blindly follow an algorithm and all treatment decisions have to be made according to relevant information (e.g. previous treatments, tolerability) that cannot always be incorporated into treatment pathways. The information provided here is not a replacement for clinical guidelines produced by guideline panels. Responsibility for treatment decisions always lies with the treating clinician.

Proformas and checklists

We provide these to assist clinicians in providing us with the key information we might need in order to consider a referral to the service. If you are completing these, please do not send them via insecure/ unencrypted email. Always ensure that information sent to us is via a secure route (such as NHS mail). If unsure, post it.

No warranties

This website is provided 'as is', inclusive of any faults, errors, or omissions, and Advanced Interventions Service makes no express or implied representations or warranties, of any kind related to this website or the materials contained on this website. Additionally, nothing contained on this website shall be construed as providing advice to you.

If you require specific information regarding patient care, please speak to us.

Please note that we may provide links to websites or publications. Whilst we will endeavour to keep such links up to date, we do not have control over links that change, are broken, or are modified by third parties. No link should be seen as a specific endorsement of an organisation or advice.

Limitation of liability

In no event shall Advanced Interventions Service, nor any staff, be liable for anything arising out of your use of this website.

All prescribers remain responsible for their own prescribing, and decisions about treatment remain with those overseeing the care of any individual patient.
