4 Levels of Membership
The Spinal Centre has a physical clinic and separate eClinic that acts as a unique online practice.
There is a fair amount of complexity in the site so it is worth reading this article on Membership, and the Practitioner Only Medication page.
There are 4 levels of access to The Spinal Centre site:
- Clinic Patients
Each of the levels of access or membership has unique privileges and benefits.
In general to get the full benefit of the site, the information we provide and the best treatment available; either come into the practice and become an ‘Clinic Patient’, or have an eConsult and become a ‘eClinic Patient’.
The General Public
The public can access a certain amount of the site unless it is private or restricted. Whilst we release information in to the public domain it is really directed to our members and patients.
As such we recommend that you become a patient or member to have full benefits of the site with unlimited access to the section that are relevant to you.
The public can see products that are retail. The public can see the product parent page and children.
The public can see product that are restricted – however there is a shroud over the pricing. They can see parent pages and children pages in list and grid views.
The public can see product that is practitioner only – however there is a shroud over images, details and pricing. The public can see the parent pages and children pages in list and grid views.
The public can only see the parent page of prescription only product. They cannot see or access the children pages.
If the public can some how access the prescription product (through a google search) there will always be a shroud that covers the image, details and pricing. The shroud will prevent un-authorised purchase of restricted, practitioner or prescription only products.
The public automatically becomes a member during subscription. When you register for the site it is FREE.
When logged in, Members can view and purchase retail or restricted product.
When logged in, Members have the same viewing rights as the public for Practitioner only product parent pages and children pages.
When logged in, Members have the same viewing rights as the public for Prescription only product.
The public can become a member during subscription when they complete the FREE Initial Online Health Review.
This is a one time complimentary consultation to review your case, identify your health concerns, and point you in the right direction for further tests or products that may be suitable for you.
A member can become a patient at any time when they complete the free initial health review.
However, these are one time free initial health reviews. Beyond this you are required to purchase further consultations in the form of eConsultations,
You can easily purchase eConsultations in the eClinic.
A member can become a patient at any time if they choose to purchase an eConsult.
The purchase of an eConsult is particularly recommended for those who wish to access practitioner only or prescription only medication.
A patient that completes the free initial health review will receive a prescription and unlimited access to retail, restricted and practitioner only products.
A patient that completes the free initial health review still cannot access prescription only medications – this has to be done during a paid eConsult.
A patient that completes an eConsult with have unlimited access to retail, restricted and practitioner only products – But they can also access prescription only products that have been prescribed to them during the eConsult process.
In the prescription only range, they can only access products prescribed to them, they cannot see any of the other prescription products, and they can only access a certain number of repeats until another eConsult is completed.
Clinic patients those that have physically attended the practice and we have your case history on file.
You cannot become a Clinic Patient online, it is set up manually by the Reception Team.
You are welcome to join the practice as a member or eClinic patient, however the Reception Team would have to manually upgrade your membership to become a Clinic Patient.
As a Clinic Patient, you will have special access to rehab protocols and products that will not be released to other classes of members or patients.
You will also get product information and specials that may not be available to other member categories.
It is our way of saying thanks – and making the effort to attend the practice personally.
You will have special access to natural medicines and products in the restricted and practitioner only products range. You will be monitored with the reception team in regard to purchases relating to your clinical findings.
Prescription only products will only be accessible or available to purchase if they have been prescribed by Dr. Hooper and the practice team.
You will, of course, have to be logged in to view or access the prescription medications.
