A roundup of the latest news and events from the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses
The BACN has produced a set of guidelines to enable you to prepare yourself for reopening your clinics, ensuring the safety of you, your patients and your staff is met. The BACN Board and regional leaders have worked extremely hard on these guidelines and are delighted to be able to share them with you. The Suggested Operational Plan Guidelines for COVID-19 was emailed to members, as well as being available in the members’ resource area of the BACN website. We have also made our recommendations available to non-members, which can be accessed via the Aesthetics website.
We have received enquiries from members as to when you can start practising again. The BACN has been carefully monitoring the Government’s announcements and how they apply to members and aesthetic clinics. It is very important to note that the latest announcements from the Government apply to England, and that the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland may well adopt localised variations. The BACN has been working to get detailed clarification from the Government. As soon as we have this, it will be posted on our website. It should be stressed that any decision to reopen clinics will be down to individual members.
We would like to thank all members who have continued membership/payments and those who have newly joined. We have received some very supportive messages in the past few months and the BACN Facebook group remains active and buzzing with discussions and updates for when we restart clinics. If you would like to become a member of the BACN to meet other aesthetic nurses and gain more access to guidance and support on running an aesthetic practice, email our membership and marketing manager Gareth Lewis via firstname.lastname@example.org
