Two aesthetic practitioners have created a marketplace platform that connects non-surgical aesthetic patients to practitioners.
The Safe Aesthetic Practitioner (SafeAP) was created by aesthetic practitioner and NHS surgical trainee, Dr Sieuming Ng and NHS surgical trainee Dr Subha Punj and aims to act as a dual platform for patients and practitioners.
The service aims to help practitioners, especially those newer to the industry, find new patients, manage their patient enquiries and organise bookings, document procedures, gain consent, receive payment and generate invoice and conduct e-consultations.
For patients, SafeAP aims to ensures that treatments are provided by qualified and fully insured doctors, dentists or nurses, allow for reviews and practitioner ratings, and communication with practitioners before and after treatments using a GDPR-compliant messaging service.
According to the founders, SafeAP is designed based on their personal experiences as both users of medical aesthetic procedures and as practitioners.
Dr Ng said, "SafeAP is the first mobile application marketplace founded by two medical doctors with a passion for improved safety in the medical aesthetics industry. For practitioners, SafeAP markets your services and provides you with an effective patient management tool. For patients, it provides them with a list of qualified practitioners. Our vision for SafeAP is to improve safety, empower patients to make informed choices and to champion practitioners by providing them with the basic tools to run their aesthetic business effectively. The website also serves as an information portal for patients.”
