Did you hear Dr Nestor on @bbcradioscot Good Morning Scotland today? (Click on link in bio. Time 7:35).
.
He was discussing the lack of regulations around Aesthetic Medicine in Scotland and how this puts patients at risk of harm. He highlighted how doctors, nurses and dentists are registered with and regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland, and yet non medics who are not qualified and not regulated, carry out treatments unchecked.
.
83% of complications reported to @savefaceuk in 2018 were carried out by non medics.
.
Dr Nestor and colleagues across Scotland feel this is an outrage and that the only acceptable change to legislation should be to enforce that only doctors, nurses and dentists can carry out aesthetic injectable treatments.
