Returned at the weekend from a very informative first meeting held in London by ‘The Journal of Aesthetic Nurses’.
The conference collided with the publishing of the news that, from 23/07/2012 insurance companies that specialise in providing insurance to nurses and doctors offering prescribable aesthetic treatments such as Botox will not cover practitioners who are not themselves prescribers, their insurance will be invalid.
The practice of remote prescribing, where prescriptions are verbally given either over the phone or via the internet to a non prescribing practitioner to then treat the patient with Botox…..that practitioners insurance will be void.
Simply put…..To ensure your practitioner is insured and therefore the treatment they are providing to you is covered…….ask if they hold the correct qualification, ask to see their appropriate prescribing certificates……
We are very happy at Karen Lockett clinics to provide proof of qualification for any of the treatments we offer….just ask
