The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) has released a new initiative to engage with other organisations and associations in the sector.
The BCAM Stakeholder Engagement Initiative brings together fellow organisations in aesthetic medicine in the UK to share practice, promote patient safety and lobby for better regulation to treatments.
BCAM already work closely with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), sharing data that informs government decision-making, and is involved in consultations with the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
BCAM president Dr Uliana Gout said, “Over the past few months, we have worked closely with others including the MHRA, Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and the British Association of Cosmetic Nurses (BACN). We have decided to launch an initiative to bring together stakeholders for regular meetings where we can share information and work together on improving standards, increasing public safety and raising awareness of the importance of consulting healthcare professionals for aesthetic treatments.”
