Remote prescriptions are against NMC guidelines

Remote prescriptions should not be used for botulinum toxin injections, it is against the Nursing and Midwifery Council's (NMC) guidelines.  You must have a face to face consultation with either the doctor, dentist or Registered General Nurse who is going to inject you.  A Registered Nurse must have their Independant Nurse Prescriber qualification and this can be checked on the NMC website.  Make sure you are being treated by the correct professional, the term aesthetician is being widely used in the industry often by people who are not medically trained.  If in doubt, ask to see their qualifications.
