About Treatments You Can Trust

Treatments You Can Trust is a social enterprise working for the benefit of patients who are considering cosmetic treatment.

We check if healthcare professionals who offer cosmetic treatments are safe to do so. We publish the names and details of those we can assure you are trustworthy.

The Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (PSA) seeks to ensure your safety as a patient. It recommends you only take treatment from someone on an Accredited Register - such as the Treatments You Can Trust register.
