The work they do has two purposes: Two support members and to be advocates of patient safety and well-being in the field of Non-Surgical Aesthetic Treatments.
Independent Nurse Prescriber– This qualification means that Diana is a specially trained nurse permitted to prescribe any licenced or unlicensed drug within her clinical competence. Nurse Prescribers were granted complete access to the British National Formulary (BNF- a UK pharmaceutical reference book) in 2006, giving them the same prescribing abilities as doctors. This enables her to administer many of the treatments that ANP Skin Clinic provide such as Dermal Fillers, Profhilo and more.
ACE (Aesthetic Complications Expert) Registered Practitioner– Although extremely rare, things can go wrong when you undergo a non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Despite the field of Aesthetic Medicine significantly growing, it is still not regarded as a medical discipline in its own right. As a result, there are no central regulations in place. That’s where the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group come in. They recommend that standardised high-quality training is undertaken by practitioners for the sake of patient/client welfare. We’re proud to say that Diana is a registered ACE practitioner.
