    Robust consent is the key to raising standards in medical aesthetics

Robust consent is the key to raising standards in medical aesthetics

The Government response to the Keogh Report was a missed opportunity, but if we, as practitioners ensure our consenting process is robust and legally compliant we will ultimately raise standards within the medical aesthetics industry ourselves. Creating Consentz has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life. During the process I have become fascinated by the legal and ethical issues surrounding consent – namely what constitutes proper informed consent and how we as aesthetic practitioners can protect ourselves […]

The missed opportunities of the Keogh Report is the industry’s opportunity to act

Like so many of us in the industry I saw the publication of the Keogh Report as a great opportunity for reform.

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons issued a warning to consumers about the health risks of buying into group discount online promotions for non-invasive cosmetic medicine procedures. Meanwhile NICE reported that some unscrupulous injectors were re-using the same needle on several different patients putting them at risk of blood borne diseases like HIV and hepatitis C. At Consentz we believe promotions offering cut-price Botox and dermal fillers should be banned […]

Why I created Consentz for medical aesthetics practitioners

I run a small but extremely busy medical aesthetics clinic in  Surrey specialising in Botox, dermal fillers and laser treatments. My days are spent treating patients, with little or no time between appointments and, until recently, my evenings were spent catching up on patient admin. This included transcribing treatment notes, often written in a hurry, and difficult to read, completing treatment forms and […]
