Terms and Conditions
What these terms and conditions cover
These terms and conditions contain essential legal information that tells you things like:
- The rules for using our services
- What we need from you to provide our services

These terms and conditions are an agreement between you and us (Senti/Senti Care/we/us). This is so you know the rules and your rights when you use our Clinical Services, web application, website (https://senti.care) and services provided by Senti. We do not currently operate outside of the UK. By using our services you agree to these terms and conditions. If you don’t follow these terms and conditions, we might need to cancel or suspend your account.
You should also read these terms and conditions along with:
How to contact us
How we contact you
We will contact you in English by email or by phone, or via our web and mobile applications. Please contact our support team if you need a translator or interpreter.
We might also send you notifications through our web and mobile applications when we need to tell you something important.
What are Our Services
Our services fall into 2 categories:
(a) Clinical Services
Our video, audio, and home consultations, where you can talk with one of our medical professionals. This includes people like doctors, specialist nurses, advanced nurse practitioners, phlebotomists (people qualified to draw blood), physiotherapists, and pharmacists. Throughout these terms and conditions, we’ve called them practitioners.
These practitioners might give you a diagnosis, recommendation, or treatment. They may also prescribe to you, or refer you to someone else.
(b) Device services
Services that give you health advice through our medical devices, apps or websites. These devices are regulated by the MHRA in the UK and must only be used for their Intended Use. If you use one or more of our devices, then we will provide you will a full guide on how to use the device safely and effectively.
Accessing our Services
At the moment, you can only access our Services if you are based in the UK. You can do this by subscribing to one of our services via our website. In due course, we may also offer our services through 3rd parties, such as the NHS, your GP, or your employer.
What we need from you
The information you give us, whether through our clinical services or our digital health services, must be accurate and in English. We need you to let us know if any of the information we hold about you is wrong or out of date. Please contact our support team if you need a translator or interpreter.
You must not create duplicate accounts or register more than once to use our services. This ensures that we can keep an accurate record of your use of our services and any advice our practitioners have given you.
Our Clinical Services
Our practitioners are based in the UK. They’re members of the appropriate regulatory body (for example, our doctors are members of the General Medical Council). They’re committed to clinical best practice and any related standards. Our practitioners might have different opinions on some medical conditions or symptoms. This doesn’t mean that our clinical services are at fault; it’s normal for experts to have different views from time to time. Our clinical services are strictly focused on respiratory health and we will not be able to provide advice outside the expertise of our practitioners. We will, however, signpost you to appropriate services and refer you formally where required.
We offer urgent triage and care as part of our Clinical Services. This is typically a phone call within 12 hours Monday-Friday. However, if you need medical attention more urgently, you should contact emergency services via 999 (or 111 if more appropriate). Specifically with regardless to lung disease, contact 999 if you are experiencing:
- Severe breathlessness or wheezing, especially at night or in the early morning.
- The inability to speak more than short phrases due to shortness of breath.
- Having to strain your chest muscles to breathe.
- Low peak flow readings when you use a peak flow meter.
- No improvement after using a quick-acting (rescue) inhaler.
Consultations with our practitioners shouldn’t replace consultations with your regular NHS GP. Before your consultation, we will ask you whether you give us consent to share the summaries of your consultations with your regular NHS GP. If you do, you will be asked to provide your NHS GP’s details. If you decide not to, your practitioner will confirm your decision with you during your consultation. If you change your mind, you can inform your practitioner during your consultation or contact our support team as soon as possible afterwards. In certain circumstances, your practitioner may be unable to assist you if you do not consent to us sharing information with your NHS GP. You should talk to your regular GP about any information you get from us.
You should contact emergency services or arrange follow-on care if one of our practitioners recommends it.
You must let your practitioner know at the start of your consultation if you are not located in the UK. We are not able to offer consultations if you are located in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Germany or China at the time of your consultation. We may also choose not to continue with your consultation in any other part of the world outside the UK if we do not think that it is lawful or appropriate for us to do so. You should check your medical care entitlements and options before you travel outside the UK.
Your prescriptions and medicines
In the UK, we’re able to prescribe medicines without face-to-face meetings. Our practitioners follow national evidence-based guidance, such as the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). They meet Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards.
Read more on the National Institute of Clinical Excellence website.
And also on the Care Quality Commission website.
For our private service, we can’t prescribe controlled drugs and have strict limits on high-risk medicines. Also, we can’t issue repeat prescriptions, which can only be obtained through your regular NHS GP. In the UK, we partner with pharmacies that provide your medicine. These aren’t part of Senti and we can’t take responsibility for their acts or mistakes. We may refuse to prescribe to you if we think it’s not safe or legal to do so. We are not able to issue prescriptions to you if you are located outside of the UK or the European Economic Area (EEA). Please also bear in mind that if you are in the EEA, prescriptions issued by us may not be accepted by the local pharmacy.
If you’re using Senti privately, you need to pay the relevant pharmacy for your prescriptions. Prescription charges aren’t covered by any payments you make to Senti to use our services. The price is set by the pharmacy and Senti is not responsible for the collection or payment of any prescription charges. You don’t have to use any particular pharmacy.
Collection and delivery of prescriptions
If you’re in the UK, you can choose to have your medicine delivered to your home, or you can pick it up from a pharmacy near you. We can’t accept returns or give refunds on medicines. By choosing home delivery, you agree to the terms and conditions of our relevant partner pharmacy.
What we need if you use our clinical services

- Follow any instructions we give to you about how to use medicines or healthcare products we recommend or prescribe. This includes use-by dates

Only use our services for you
Tell a practitioner or your GP if you have any bad or unexpected effects from anything we’ve recommended to you.

If you try to register (or re-register) for Clinical Services after your account has been suspended or cancelled, we reserve the right to remove you from the service (without a refund) and prevent you from creating a new account.
Prices and how to pay
The prices of our services are set out when you register via our website. Our prices may change at any time, but this will not affect the price of anything you have already ordered. All prices exclude VAT, where this applies.
For those who choose to subscribe to our Clinical Services, we offer a monthly subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time, but we ask you to think carefully before signing up for out subscription service and then cancelling: we plan the services we can deliver around the idea of long term continuity of care. Our service is not intended for one-off consultations – we want to provide continuity of care and high quality, as this is the best way to optimise your long-term health and keep you well. We’re here to provide you with the care you need to get well when you’re ill and the care you need to stay as well as possible.
You need to pay all charges in advance. We may stop providing our services to you if you don’t pay on time.
We automatically renew all subscriptions and take payment at the end of your existing subscription. That’s unless you cancel it at least 72 hours before the end of your subscription period. If your renewal payment fails (for example, because your card has expired or been cancelled), your subscription will not be renewed. Our subscription services will no longer be available to you, unless you set up a new subscription using a new payment method. The price you pay for your new subscription will be our most recent price at the time your new payment method becomes active.
We’ll let you know if our subscription prices change.
