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


The BACN has entered into a partnership with the London Medical Education Academy to offer discounted Facial Anatomy Cadaver training for its members, with interactive sessions on dissection and injection. 

BACN members can book onto these courses through the website, and we are piloting two dates in Nottingham on June 22 and July 31. Spaces are filling quickly, and are exclusive to BACN members.


The BACN has also started offering our new Shadowing Programme for members wishing to observe treatments by experienced practitioners within the mentor’s clinic setting. We now have more than 20 BACN mentors around the country that are able to offer this service. BACN members can contact head office at if they are interested in finding out more.

There will be more speakers announced in the coming weeks, and booking for our Workshops and Drinks Reception on Friday 15 September will be open imminently. With 75% of the exhibition space already occupied, remaining exhibitor space is now limited. To book, contact
