PSA accredits JCCP

17 Apr 2018

The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners’ (JCCP) register of practitioners providing non-surgical treatments and hair restoration surgery has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) for Health and Social Care.

The PSA is an independent statutory body for regulators and accredited registers, accountable to Parliament that promotes the health, safety and wellbeing of patients, service users and the public by raising standards of regulation and voluntary registration of people working in health and care.

Under the Accredited Registers programme, practitioners on the JCCP register will be able to display the Accredited Register quality mark, a sign that they belong to a register which meets the PSA’s robust standards.

“The JCCP is delighted to have been able to demonstrate compliance with the rigorous standards mandated by the PSA in recognition of the Council’s declared commitment to patient safety and public protection,” Professor David Sines, JCCP chair said, adding, “I regard this to be a major step forward in the quest to deliver a new system of voluntary regulation within the rapidly developing and complex area of aesthetic treatments. Accreditation of the JCCP’s Register and the application of the Accredited Register quality mark will provide the public with the confidence and assurance they require to obtain treatment from those practitioners who practise safely and in accordance with our published practice and educational standards”

Harry Cayton, chief executive of the PSA added, “We are very pleased to accredit the JCCP register. Bringing these practitioners into a broad framework of assurance is good for patients, the public and is the best way to promote patient safety.”
