Terms of service apply between a participant of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (their guardian, and/or plan nominee), and Physio Inq Pty Ltd (the provider)
The NDIS and Terms of Service
Terms of service (also known as Service Agreements) are made for the purpose of providing supports under the Participant’s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan.
The parties agree that these terms of service are made in the context of the NDIS, which is a scheme that aims to:
- Support the independence and social and economic participation of people with disability, and
- Enable people with a disability to exercise choice and control in the pursuit of their goals and the planning and delivery of their supports.
The Provider agrees to provide the Participant Allied Health and/or Support co-ordination services for the period stated in the Participant’s NDIS Plan.
When signing our NDIS Service Agreements, the participant or authorised representative grants consent for the provision of relevant services and for Physio Inq therapists to confidentially liaise with other key stakeholders, support workers and carers for the interest of the participant's needs. Had a participant or their representative wish to revoke or change this consent in any way, they may do so in the service agreement, by email, phone or in writing.
Consent to Audio-Visual Recording Content
By signing your service agreement, you also consent to the use of your images for assessment and treatment application, liaising with stakeholders, which may include online platforms, such as social media. Verbal confirmation and consent will additionally be requested at the time.
I understand that I have the right to withdraw my consent at any time and have my images deleted or removed.
