July 23rd marked a huge step in the aesthetics industry - no
more remote prescribing. The General Medical Council (GMC)
has now taken a stance on this matter, following the Nursing and
Midwifery Council (NMC) and now anyone who is having anti-wrinkle
treatment must have a face to face consultation with the
prescriber. The only people allowed to prescribe are doctors,
dentists and Independant Nurse Prescribers (which I am).
Obviously this has a huge impact on non prescribers but it is
important you are being treated safely and within the correct
guidelines and is the first step forward in regulating the
industry. If you know anyone having treatment, please pass
this information onto them and ask them to check the practitioners
qualifications. I am more than happy for people to check my
registered qualifications on the NMC website.
