The JCCP Board have taken time to review the representations it has received and has agreed to restrict entry of non-healthcare practitioners to the Level 7 Injectables and dermal filler parts of the JCCP register at this time. These changes will now be implemented. We will continue to actively encourage non-healthcare practitioners to engage with the work of the Council and the CPSA to improve the safety of their performance and to submit data relating to their practice to inform the evidence base relating to patient safety and risk....".
