The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) register of practitioners in non-surgical treatments and hair restoration surgery has been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) for Health and Social Care, an independent statutory body, accountable to Parliament.
This accreditation means that the JCCP will be able to display the Accredited Register quality mark, a sign that they meet the Professional Standards Authority’s standards which encompass:
- Education and training
- Management of the register
- Complaints handling and information
The accreditation does not imply that the PSA has approved individuals on the register, as that assessment is the responsibility of the JCCP.
Harry Cayton, Chief Executive of the Professional Standards Authority said:
“We are very pleased to accredit the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners 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.”
Professor David Sines CBE, JCCP Chair said
“The JCCP is delighted to have been able to demonstrate compliance with the rigorous standards mandated by the Professional Standards Authority in recognition of the Council’s declared commitment to patient safety and public protection.
“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.”
The JCCP is a registered charity which was established in order to raise public awareness of the risks involved in BOTOX® (botulinum toxin), dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments and hair restoration surgery. It provides a register of ‘safe’ practitioners who meet the standards set by the JCCP in collaboration with the Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority (CPSA).
Accredited registration is different from statutory professional registration, as it is not compulsory, but provides clients with a means of finding practitioners on an approved register.
