The BACN is now in the position to formally announce that today, Monday 6th July, the Department of Health announced that the updated legislation  does NOT apply to medical aesthetics performed by regulated clinicians following a medical model.

You are therefore free to open your clinics with immediate effect.

The BACN have been working tirelessly to reaffirm the unique position of nurses along with the other medical professionals and are delighted that this has been accepted and endorsed.

Members are reminded to adhere to guidance of Government, Public Health England, our regulatory body the NMC and the guidance issued by the BACN.
