If You think that there is a mistake or require any changes, please contact Us to discuss this. We will confirm any changes in writing to avoid any confusion between You and Us.
2.3 When You submit Your Application to Us, this does not mean We have accepted Your Application for the Placement. Our acceptance of Your Application will take place as described in clause 2.4. If We are unable to supply You with a Placement, We will inform You of this either in writing or by telephone and We will not process Your Application.

a) You pay the Registration Fee to Us; and
b) We confirm in writing that We can provide You with the Placement

2.5 We shall assign a reference number to Your Placement and inform You of it when We confirm Your Placement. Please quote the reference number in all subsequent correspondence with Us relating to Your Placement.

3. ACCOMMODATION & FOOD

3.2 Food is provided only at specified locations written in the ‘Placement Guide’ which is specific to Your Placement location.

b) provide food or accommodation in the event that You travel away from Your Placement, or
c) provide alternative accommodation unless the accommodation We provide is in Our opinion unsuitable.
3.5 If there are any problems with Your accommodation, please follow the procedure set out in clause 10.

4. INSURANCE

4.1 Undertaking one of Our Placements overseas carries with it a degree of risk and You must pay for and be protected by comprehensive travel insurance and professional indemnity insurance cover.
4.2 Ensuring You are covered is Your responsibility and We accept no responsibility if for any reason You are not covered by Your insurance in the event of any loss, illness, injury or otherwise (provided such injury does not relate to an act or omission by Us). 
4.3 In particular:
a) You must obtain appropriate travel insurance to cover You for the period of Your Placement and provide full details of this insurance to Us at least one month prior to the commencement of Your Placement. Although We strongly recommend that You obtain a fully comprehensive insurance policy, Your policy must at least cover the following:
i. Your repatriation and that of Your belongings to Your home address in the country of Your residence;
ii. medical cover for the period of the Placement and Your travel to and from the Placement between the country of departure and the country the Placement takes place in; 
iii. Your death or personal injury;  
iv. loss, theft or damage of Your belongings or money; 
v. cancelled or delayed flights; and
b) You must have in place appropriate professional indemnity insurance cover for the duration of the Placement that will indemnify and hold harmless Us, the hospital or other Placement setting and its employees, servants and agents against all liabilities, costs, expenses, losses including but not limited to any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit, loss of reputation and all interest, penalties and legal costs (calculated on a full indemnity basis) and all other reasonable professional costs and expenses), damages, injuries or judgements in any way caused by Your negligence or wrongdoing provided You are working under the supervision of an appropriately qualified practitioner and provide full details of this insurance to Us at least one month prior to the commencement of Your Placement.

4.4 Whilst every effort is made to make sure all accommodation is safe and secure, We recommend that You do not have in excess of £200 of currency (either sterling or the equivalent in such other local currency) at any time either in Your possession or kept at Your accommodation and We recommend that You take no other valuables with You to Your Placement. If You do decide to take valuables with You to Your Placement, it is Your responsibility to make sure that Your insurance properly covers such valuables. There are cash machines located within a short distance of each of the locations of the Placements and We recommend that You take small amounts of cash out at regular intervals rather than carry excess amounts of cash with You whilst on Your Placement. We accept no responsibility for loss or damage to Your property during Your Placement provided such loss or damage is not by reason of Our negligence.

5. MONEY

5.1 The Nigerian Naira is the currency of Nigeria. We provide help and advice on the exchange of foreign currency. We accept no responsibility for the consequences of varied exchange rate.
5. 2 Once We have received Your request for support We will send an email to You acknowledging receipt (We may sometimes but not always call You to confirm this). All currency requested must be paid for by electronic bank transfer to the Medics’ Inn bank account provided to You. 
5.3 Currency availability may also be subject to further monetary limits, currency exchange restrictions and to customers complying with all applicable laws and regulations, (including, without limitation, anti-money laundering and/or counter-terrorist financing legislation).
5. 4 We reserve the right to decline and cancel orders without reason, and refunds will be issued where payment has already been made by customers.

6. AMENDMENTS, CANCELLATION AND CURTAILMENT BY YOU TO THE PLACEMENT

6.1 Cancellation, postponement or amendment of Your Placement must be notified to Us in writing. Our staff can provide help and advice on amendments and cancellations, but a verbal agreement will not represent a change to Your contract with Us and You must contact Us in writing by email to Placement@medicsinn.com.
6.2 Our charge for an amendment to Your Placement is normally £40 (to cover Our administration costs) plus any additional costs incurred by Us. If the total amendment cost is estimated to exceed £70, We will provide You with a quotation before proceeding.
6.3 A significant part of the fee paid by You will be spent or committed to budgets prior to the start date of Your Placement, and We are therefore unable to offer a full refund of the Price if You choose to cancel. In the event of a cancellation by You the Registration Fee is non-refundable and We will refund part of the Price after deducting a cancellation charge. The cancellation charges set out below fairly reflect Our expenditure depending on how far in advance of Your original Placement start date We receive Your written notice to cancel as follows:
a) Notice of between 8 and 12 Weeks: 50% of Price;
b) Notice of less than 8 Weeks: 100% of Price (no refund).
6.4 You may request a single postponement of Your Placement. Your notification must reach Us no less than 8 Weeks before the Placement start date. If We agree to Your request to vary the dates of Your Placement We may need to charge You because a significant part of the fee paid by You will be spent or committed to budgets prior to the start date of Your original Placement. Exceptions are entirely at Our discretion and must be agreed in writing at the time when the postponement is made. We will not accept responsibility for costs You may incur because of any postponement of Your Placement start date such as, but not limited to, flight ticket penalties and insurance, vaccination and visa fees.
6.5 Any requests to amend Your Placement after Your Placement has started are entirely at Our discretion.
6.6 If You curtail Your Placement and do not undertake the whole of Your Placement, We cannot refund You any of the fee paid for Your Placement. You will be responsible for any additional costs involved with the curtailment of Your Placement, including the cost of repatriation.  If We incur any costs by reason of Your curtailment of Your Placement, We reserve the right to charge You a reasonable administration fee.
6.7 For the avoidance of doubt the calculation of time periods in accordance with this Clause 6 shall be calculated by reference to the original, unmodified, Placement start date.

7. PROVIDING SERVICES

7.1 Subject to these Terms, We will supply the Placement to You on the date agreed between Us.
7.2 We will make every effort to provide the Placement on the dates agreed. However, there may be delays or cancellations due to an Event Outside Our Control. See clause 9 for Our responsibilities when an Event Outside Our Control happens.
7.3 If You do not pay Us for the Placement when You are supposed to as set out in clause 15 We may at Our discretion either cancel the Placement in its entirety or suspend the Placement with immediate effect until You have paid Us the outstanding amounts. We will contact You to tell You this.

8. AMENDMENTS AND CANCELLATIONS BY US

8.1 The nature of Our overseas programmes is such that it may be necessary to change the details of Your Placement (such as the hospital in which You are placed or the type of accommodation) from those originally given to You. We will do Our very best to minimise such changes and will only do this for a valid reaso , and We will inform You promptly if changes do arise.
8.2 In very occasional circumstances We may need to cancel overseas Placements. In such cases, We will inform You not less than 4 Weeks before Your Placement start date and refund the Registration Fee and Price. This will be the full extent of Our liability and We will not accept responsibility for other costs You may incur for example but not limited to flight ticket penalties and insurance, vaccination and visa fees.

9. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

9.1 We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of Our obligations under these Terms that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond Our reasonable control, including without limitation:
a) epidemic or pandemic;
b) terrorist attack, civil war, civil commotion or riots, war, threat of or preparation for war, armed conflict, imposition of sanctions, embargo, or breaking off of diplomatic relations;
c) nuclear, chemical or biological contamination or sonic boom;
d) any law or any action taken by a government or public authority, including without limitation imposing an export or import restriction, quota or prohibition, or failing to grant a necessary licence or consent;
e) collapse of buildings, fire, explosion or accident; 
f) any labour or trade dispute, strikes, industrial action or lockouts;
g) non-performance by suppliers or subcontractors (other than by companies in the same group as the party seeking to rely on this clause); and
h) interruption or failure of utility service.

9.2 We will not accept responsibility for any costs You may incur because of Our failure to perform, or delay in Our performance of, any of Our obligations under these Terms including but not limited to the costs of flight tickets, vaccinations, insurance and visas. 
9.3 If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of Our obligations under these Terms We will contact You as soon as reasonably possible to notify You.

10. IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE SERVICES

10.1 We are here to help You, and Our staff in the UK and overseas will do their very best to provide the highest level of service. However, a formal procedure for complaints is set out below.
10.2 We are providing You with an opportunity to gain real-life work experience in a working hospital or other Placement, and as such You will need to show a high level of independence and initiative, especially in dealing with problems as they arise. If You have any problem that You find difficult to deal with, or which You feel should be Our responsibility to resolve, You should follow this procedure:
a) Communicate to Your British support officer. This is the person with the greatest understanding of Your local situation, and he or she will do their best to help You;
b) If You are unhappy with the immediate response, or You feel the time taken to resolve the problem is too great, You should present Your complaint to Your Nigerian support officer in writing;

d) In the event of a claim for compensation, You must promptly inform Us by email of Your intention to claim for compensation and then full details of the claim must be received by Us in writing no more than 90 days after the end date of Your Placement.
10.3 The above procedure exists to enable Us to identify and deal with problems and complaints as quickly and efficiently as possible. Failure to follow this procedure may compromise Our ability to help You. We will not be responsible for problems or complaints not brought to Our attention as above.
