Transition Terms & Conditions 09/22

As a small independent business, we are reliant on every booking and our clients’
continued support to keep us thriving. We advise all clients to read through the clinic
terms and conditions before making a booking. These are put in place to safeguard
Transition and to ensure the best standard of service is offered to each of our clients.
When booking an appointment, you are agreeing to the Transition terms and conditions
stated below. Please be sure before booking and double check your dates.

Appointment confirmation:

An automated appointment text will be sent to the mobile contact number stored on our
client records 48 hours prior to the booked appointment; we also will know if this text has
been read. It is the responsibility of the client to inform us of any change in contact details
when possible. Transition takes no responsibility for unreceived appointment texts and
urges all clients to always add any appointments to your personal diaries as a backup.
You will also be offered the added option at booking of an email appointment reminder.


We are lucky to have street parking around us, but we advise guests that ASDA Holbrook
Road PO1 1SL has three hours FREE parking and is a short walk from the salon. Farmfoods
has a car park opposite the salon but be aware of its strict parking rules.
