At The White Rooms we are very pleased about the new guidelines that have been released by Heath Education England to protect patients.

Health Education England has published two reports aimed at improving and standardising the training available to practitioners who carry out hair restoration surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, such as botox, chemical peels and laser hair removal.

Commissioned by the Department of Health the reports set out ‘qualification requirements’ for practitioners who perform these types of treatments – regardless of any previous training they might have had or their professional background. These requirements are aimed at ensuring that people are properly trained in the use and application of any products that they use – thereby making sure that patients’ safety comes first.

It is so reassuring to know that the Heath Authority are looking into professional guidelines for the administration of cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

The full report and all the guidelines are available on the Health Education England website. Keep a lookout in the media for further infomation soon…
