The British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) has welcomed independent nurse prescriber Emma Davies to its board.
Davies was one of the founders of the BAS in 2002 and, according to the association, has been instrumental in promoting the interests of aesthetic nurses and raising standards of practice throughout the UK sclerotherapy and aesthetics specialties.
“Having worked with her in the past I am confident that Emma’s energy and enthusiasm will prove a great asset,” said Mr Philip Coleridge Smith, medical director of The British Vein Institute and president of the BAS. He added, “We are looking to grow our membership base and further our aims of raising standards and providing a comprehensive sclerotherapy resource for members and the public. Emma’s knowledge and experience will be highly relevant and bring benefits to our members.”
Davies commented, “My experience as a practitioner and microsclerotherapy trainer gives me a unique insight into the challenges faced by many of our members, and I have lots of ideas that will benefit them and raise the profile of the Association. After attending the excellent BAS 2018 sclerotherapy conference this May, I am keen to play an active role in the next conference in Spring 2019, and I’m excited about being involved with the future direction of the BAS once again.”
