JCCP and sk:n clinics partner

13 Dec 2021

The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) and clinic group sk:n have announced a partnership to enhance regulation in the aesthetics industry.

Through this partnership, sk:n and the JCCP aim to raise awareness surrounding the dangers of having under-qualified practitioners carry out non-surgical treatments and continue to lobby the Government to introduce laws to regulate the industry.

The JCCP launched a Ten Point Plan in 2021, whilst sk:n clinics have strict supplier protocols and standards set out by the sk:n’s Medical Standards Committee. Through this partnership, the associations hope to accelerate regulation in the industry from licensing of premises to the training and qualifications of practitioners.

Professor David Sines, chair of the JCCP, commented, “The JCCP has established a very positive relationship with sk:n over many years. Experts from sk:n have been actively engaged since 2016 in assisting the JCCP to develop a number of its published standards and have contributed extensively to broader debates about regulation and patient safety. The JCCP is delighted to be able to formulise this relationship into a clear partnership where both parties can contribute to raising standards regarding patient safety, ethical practice and public protection as central tenets of our shared mission and values.”
