A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses


BACN Regional Leaders met on August 14 to discuss ongoing challenges and evaluations of our Regional Group meetings that take place across the UK. Leaders were tasked with working on increasing meeting attendance, managing sponsors and creating initiatives to increase engagement throughout the regional groups.


The BACN welcomes the decision by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) to not register non-healthcare professionals at Level 7 (Injectables and Fillers) on the practitioner register. The BACN will continue to campaign for statutory regulation. BACN members were invited on all JCCP committees, including education and training, and committees working on standards for modality specialties.


Poster submission for the Autumn Aesthetic Conference on November 8 and 9 is now open. Visit the BACN website for more information on submission criteria, templates and deadlines.
