Regulation of Independent Healthcare Clinics
As of April 2017, all independent clinics such as Clinetix that provide medical consultations or treatments including Wrinkle Relaxing Injections, Dermal Fillers, Laser Treatments, Chemical Peels etc must be registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland.
Healthcare Improvement Scotland has put regulations in place to ensure all independents clinics in Scotland are meeting the same standards of aesthetic excellence and to improve safety in aesthetic medicine. The regulation is rather extensive covering cleanliness, sharps disposal, health and safety policies, contingency plans, emergency management protocols and much more.
The National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 defines Independent clinics as clinics that are not part of a hospital and from which a medical practitioner, dental practitioner, registered nurse, registered midwife or dental care professional (clinical dental technician, dental hygienist, dental nurse, dental technician, dental therapist, orthodontic therapist). provides a service, which is not part of the National Health Service. The term ‘service’ includes consultations, investigations and treatments.
Clinetix Rejuvenation is an independent healthcare clinic and as such is registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland. We have long been waiting for regulation in Aesthetic Medicine and are delighted that the profession is slowly becoming safer.
Unfortunately, regulation of aesthetic treatments currently does not cover non-medical practitioners. What this means is that beauty therapists with little to no knowledge of the anatomy or understanding of the components involved in aesthetic medicine can still provide aesthetic treatments without any regulatory body monitoring them. Remember Aesthetic Treatments are medical treatments and must be treated as such and therefore should be provided by a medical practitioner.
