Clinic operator Transform, part of the Transform Hospital Group, has confirmed that all of its healthcare professionals involved within non-surgical treatments will be required to join the voluntary Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) register, as part of a new partnership between the two parties.
Tony Veverka, CEO of Transform, commented, “Transform is dedicated to providing patients with the highest standards of care. To deliver on this promise, we are taking a leading role alongside the JCCP to drive up standards across the industry so all patients can start their treatment journey with confidence in the practitioner, the clinic and the standard of care being delivered.”
He added, “The JCCP will provide a much-needed marker of quality for practitioners carrying out non-surgical treatments so that patients can have confidence in the safety and standards of their treatment. We are delighted to be the first provider to join the JCCP register and hope that other providers will follow suit so that good standards are raised and recognised across our industry.”
As part of the partnership, both the JCCP and Transform have also committed to creating a series of marketing and communication initiatives to raise public awareness of the risks associated with non-surgical treatments and the importance of using fully competent and JCCP-registered practitioners.
Professor David Sines, chair of the JCCP commented, “The JCCP is delighted to announce its first major partnership with a national chain of clinics/hospitals providing non-surgical treatments, Transform. We are both totally committed to the need to raise awareness amongst patients of the importance of recognising risks attached to some of these treatments and to only go to a recognised practitioner. We both share the primary aim of enhancing public protection and patient safety.”
