Clinic’s landmark celebrated with successful hair and beauty PR

Dermal Clinic's positive headlines thanks to hair and beauty PR campaign

A PIONEERING aesthetic clinic has notched up a memorable first by blazing a trail for patient safety – and earned a swathe of positive headlines as a result.

Dermal Clinic became the first in the country to register under a new scheme with Health Improvement Scotland (HIS), which is aimed at giving the public confidence in standards and practices.

Accomplished cosmetic nurse Jackie Partridge, who founded Dermal Clinic in 2007, was headhunted by the Scottish Government to help shape the new regulations.

And her business, based in Morningside, Edinburgh, became the first name on the HIS register, which is designed to safeguard people who undergo cosmetic procedures. News of that landmark appeared in multiple important and credible news sources, including:

The new legislation applies to  independent clinics, where doctors and nurses provide surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, such as Botox, dermal fillers, or laser eye surgery as well as dentists, midwives and dental care professionals. They must register with Healthcare Improvement Scotland by April 2017.

HIS estimates there are around 500 independent clinics in Scotland which must register and while Dermal Clinic became the notable first, already 258 other services across Scotland are following suit by completing their applications.

Registered clinics will stand out to patients by demonstrating the high standards to which they operate, while reassuring patients that regular independent inspections are carried out by HIS experts.
