A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
The BACN would like to thank all of our members who have renewed their membership for 2018/2019. The renewal rate has been fantastic, and retention rates have improved year on year. Membership and Marketing Manager Gareth Lewis is available to contact if you have queries.
The BACN is just finishing its Spring round of regional meetings throughout the UK. A big thank you to our strategic partners for delivering fantastic demonstrations and presentations, with a special thank you to Hamilton Fraser Cosmetic Insurance for delivering General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) webinars, catered specifically to nurses working in aesthetics. The turnout at the meetings was strong and the mix of experienced and newer practitioners demonstrated that there was something for everyone at each event. The Save the Dates for the Autumn regional meetings are on our website.
We have been working with Hamilton Fraser to deliver GDPR information and advice specific to aesthetics, in order to prepare members for the new penalties coming into force this month. Support can be gathered via the BACN Facebook groups, contacting head office, or by accessing GDPR resources in the BACN members’ area.
Michelle McLean, Regional Lead for Scotland said: “In what is often an isolating world of aesthetics, the BACN provides ongoing support and education that’s invaluable.” Simone Sansom, Regional Lead for the North East said: “I love the BACN. It’s vital as a nurse to not work in isolation, and it’s brilliant to meet other nurses throughout the country at events, along with engaging in fantastic opportunities.”
