Refunds will be processed 28 days from date of verification. Refunds will go back against the original payment in compliance with the bank’s card rules.
Interface reserves the right to revoke the refund policy for practices in which the health checks where the ‘estimated income assuming 70% patients suitable for QOF register inclusion’ value is below £3000.
