17th February 2014 – PIAPA response to DOH
“PIAPA members have expressed a level of concern towards the long-awaited government response to the Keogh report. Some members feel disappointed that it gives no more than a nod of acknowledgement to much needed regulation.
There appears to be a juxtaposition between it’s stated desire for public safety and the inability to make strong statements as to who may deliver treatments and the failure to change the status of dermal fillers.
However, we applaud the acknowledgement that a rigorous ,standardised approach to training is required. We will continue to engage in this process and actively engage with Health Education England to inform, encourage and influence a positive and sensible outcome which recognises the existing skills and talents of our nurses”.
