New Industry Body
Following calls for improvement in regulation of the non-surgical treatments industry, a new organisation has been created.
The National Institute of Aesthetic Research has been set up with a brief to gather data on surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments. The lack of substantial industry data was identified in the Keogh report earlier this year, which looked into issues surrounding the safety and regulation of the sector earlier this year.
The ultimate objective is to improve patient safety for those having cosmetic treatments or surgery in the UK.
Sir Bruce Keogh said:
“I welcome the announcement from the Healing Foundation and BAAPS on the launch of the National Institute of Aesthetic Research. This joint initiative is the first recommendation of my review to be implemented and I know it will provide a major contribution to patient safety.”
The first campaign for the National Institute of Aesthetic Research will be the launch of a Breast Implant Safety Campaign. This will be part funded by those manufacturing implants and will involve research into the safety aspects of implant procedures.
Following this, it is expected that the Institute will focus on botox and dermal fillers.
