Face to Face Consultations & Prescribing Service for Nurses

Prescribing – Our Independent Nurse Prescriber will carry out face-to-face consultations in South Yorkshire

Face to Face Consultations & Prescribing Service for Nurses

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 assist all our delegates and other aesthetic practitioners who are non-prescribing nurses to practice, Skincare Rejuvenation Aesthetics provides a face to face prescribing service to nurses in the South Yorkshire area.

If you train with us but are travelling from outside of south Yorkshire we also have a network of prescribers across the UK who offers a prescribing service for Prescription Only Medicines (POMs).  If we cannot assist you we will try and find someone who can.

The cost of this service depends on various factors which needs to be agreed and negotiated between the aesthetic nurse and the prescriber. Certain factors can increase or decrease the fee such as travel time and the number of clients present at each consultation clinic.

Are you a prescriber who would like adding to our database?

If you are an aesthetic practitioner  and pescriber and would like to offer a prescribing service in your area please contact us with your details and we can refer any of our delegates who require this service onto you.
