Face to Face Consultations & Prescribing Service
Since July 23rd 2012 the General Medical Council (GMC) issued new rules to its members, UK Doctors, stating that the practice of remotely prescribing prescription only botulinum toxin products, such as the brands Botox, Vistabel, Azzalure, Dysport, Xeomin and Bocouture will no longer be permitted and Doctors (or Nurse Prescribers) must see a patient face-to-face before issuing a prescription for the drug.
This means that the on-going loop-hole of writing prescriptions for Botox following a telephone call, fax, email or voice over internet connection (i.e., Skype etc.) will from July 2012 mean that the Practitioner is practicing outside of the GMC / NMC rules and could face disciplinary charges in the form of a fitness to practice hearing.
To help aesthetic practitioners in the south Yorkshire area Skincare Rejuvenation will provide a medical consultation service for your business.
Our Independent Nurse Prescriber will carry out face-to-face consultations in South Yorkshire, ensuring all patients are medically safe to receive any Botulinum toxin product.
