We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Ban non-medical professionals from giving injections for aesthetic procedures

Protect public health and the NHS by restricting the administration of aesthetic procedures to Doctors, Dentists and Nurses. This would ensure such procedures are only conducted in regulated settings as Medical Professionals are bound by clinical and ethical standards set by regulatory bodies.

More details

Non-medical people such as beauticians can inject prescription only neuro-toxins and dermal fillers to the public.

These procedures can result in complications including vascular occlusion, tissue necrosis and blindness; resulting in permanent injury/disfigurement.

Complications can require advanced clinical skills and prescription medication to be resolved. Lay practitioners without these skills often turn to A&E, putting pressure on the NHS and with no recourse.
