“We” or “Us” – Longevita London Limited, incorporated as a limited company at 239-241 Kennington Lane London SE11 5QU United Kingdom (Companies House Registration Number: 08332394).
“Trading Name” – Longevita.
“Service Provider” – The hospital, private clinic, surgeon or any other third party independent medical professional providing your consultation, examination, medical procedure, care and aftercare.

c) Private transfers.
e) Any pre-operative tests you are advised to take.
1.2. You will incur additional charges for any pre-operative tests considered necessary because of a pre-existing condition or your exposure or vulnerability to any condition. If your medical procedure is cancelled due to unfavourable test results indicating any potential contraindication to your procedure, you will get a refund after deducting the actual expenses incurred and disbursements made, however your deposit and consultation fee will be retained. Given that such an instance is beyond our control, Longevita will not be responsible for any losses or expenses you suffer (e.g. travel, accommodation, transfers, any out of pocket expenses such as meals etc.).
1.3. Once you have accepted the price quote provided to you with a link to these Terms and Conditions, you will be required to pay a deposit to us. You may pay your deposit via credit card, debit card or bank transfer. Your deposit, only a small percentage of the total price, is non-refundable.
1.4. The remainder of your balance, which is the total price minus the deposit, must be paid prior to your departure from your home country. Obtaining the full payment does not hold us liable for the services provided by the Service Provider.
1.5. If the full price is not paid before you depart from your home country, you will be in breach of this Agreement and Longevita will not be obligated to deliver any services to you.
1.6. Your treatment plan may include staying at the hospital. In cases where you stay more than one night, additional nights will be charged to you at the current rates of the hospital.
2. YOUR TREATMENT
2.1. LIMITATION of LIABILITY: Longevita does not provide medical advice nor does operate or control any Service Provider facility or service rendered by them. We do not treat patients or give them medical recommendations. We do not recommend any specific tests, diagnostic practice or products or procedures for medical symptoms or treatment. Your treatment forms and prompts a contractual relationship between you and the Service Provider providing the treatment. We will not be a party to your contractual relationship with the Service Provider. We do not hold medical qualifications and shall not be held responsible or liable for any medical procedures provided through your chosen Service Provider, nor shall be held responsible or liable for any care, treatment or other services you are provided with by the same, or for any malpractice, negligence or any other claims that may arise directly or indirectly from their advice or service. Similarly, we shall not take any responsibility or liability for the complications and dissatisfactions arising from Service Provider’s treatments. Our role is solely to facilitate a consultation and/or dialogue between you and your Service Provider. We strongly recommend that you read Service Provider’s terms and conditions and consent forms carefully prior to proceeding with your treatments.
2.2. The treatment plans offered by Longevita as a result of remote online medical assessment, email exchanges, telephone conversations or video consultations are purely based on the information (i.e. the pictures, test results, prescriptions, x-rays, etc) provided by you and reviewed by the Service Provider. Therefore, your treatment plan may change when the Service Provider examines you in person at the destination before your Procedure.
2.3. If such a change occurs, you have the option not to go ahead with the proposed treatment. In such circumstances, you will receive a refund after deductions for, among other things, tests and consultations. Please be advised that we are not responsible for refunding your accommodation, travel and transfer costs as those arrangements are made through third party providers, which are not in our control nor operated by us.
2.4. If you want to proceed with the new treatment plan, then you will receive a revised price quotation, and the balance to the Service Provider will be adjusted, based on the initial payments made. The number of days that you would need to stay in the destination will be factored in. If the treatment plan changes, the duration of stay may also change. Longevita takes no responsibility for this and cannot be held liable for the non-arrangement or disorganisation of extra days stayed or extra cost of stay.
2.5. By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you agree not to hold Longevita responsible for medical negligence or malpractice by your chosen Service Provider.
2.6. Non-Disparagement: By accepting these Terms and Conditions, you agree not to publicly attack, disparage or criticise Longevita or any of its directors, officers, employees, associates or partners (including but not limited to social media, blogs, public forums etc.) in regards to Service Provider’s treatments and actions. As Longevita cannot be held responsible for the services, medical treatments and procedures provided by the Service Provider, you agree not to bring bad name to our company or any of its employees or take action that negatively affects Longevita, its reputation, goodwill, services or management at any time during or subsequent to contract period.
In case of breach of this clause, you agree to remove and take down the content immediately upon our request. All our rights are reserved if you do not remove the damaging content as requested by us. If content remains, in part or in whole, you agree to pay £5,000 to Longevita as damages.

We are committed to providing high quality medical tourism facilitation services to our patients. When something goes wrong, we need you to tell us about it. Your feedback is very valuable to us. This will help us improve our standards.
Prior to making a complaint, we need you to review the Longevita terms and conditions you accepted.
If you believe that there was a breach of our terms, please let us know which clause it relates to, what you have already done about it and what resolution you want out of your complaint – in general, Longevita cannot offer financial compensation, address issues of staff discipline for instance sacking staff or finance private treatment.
If your complaint is related to the medical procedure you underwent, you may schedule a phone call with one of our aftercare specialists by booking an aftercare appointment online.
Please make sure you have followed the post operative instructions you were given after your treatment and you have completed the expected recovery period of your medical procedure(s) before you assess your results.
If you’ve already done the above and still aren’t satisfied with the explanations provided, you may email your complaint to [email protected]
What will happen next?
- A member of our management team will acknowledge your complaint by responding to you within 2 business days.
- The manager will review your patient file including all the written correspondence you had with our firm, listen to the recorded calls and if needed interview all staff members who acted for you. The manager may need to request additional information from you to contribute to the assessment of the case. This may take up to 2 weeks depending on the extensiveness of your complaint.
- After the above investigation is complete, the manager will present you with a resolution option(s) for your complaint and may invite you to explain the details over the phone if the matter is complicated. The resolution email or the resolution phone call would usually take within one week after the initial investigation is finalised.
- Once you agree on the resolution option, you will be required to sign a settlement agreement confirming your acceptance. Any resolution action will only be taken on our part after the settlement agreement is signed by you. Usually resolution offers have one week validity but may vary depending on the nature of the case.
- At this stage, if you are still not satisfied, the manager will review your complaint again after consulting another member of the management team unconnected with the matter to review the decision independently. The independent manager will then write to you within one week confirming our final position on your complaint and explaining our reasons.
