“We are very pleased to accredit the Treatments You Can Trust register of doctors, dentists and registered nurses. Bringing doctors, dentists and registered nurses providing injectable cosmetic treatments into a broad framework of assurance is good for patients, service users and the public and is the best way to promote quality. The programme offers enhanced consumer protection toanyone looking for health and social care services, and gives doctors, dentists and registered nurses providing injectable cosmetic treatments the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to good practice.”

Accreditation does not imply that the Authority has assessed the merits of individuals on the register. This remains the responsibility of Treatments You Can Trust. It does not mean that the Authority has endorsed a particular treatment, people will need to consider the information provided and decide if it is suitable for them. Accreditation means that the Treatments You Can Trust register meets the Professional Standards Authority’s high standards in governance, standard-setting, education and training, management of the register, complaints handling and information.

Accredited registers encompass a growing range of occupations and organisations and the Professional Standards Authority may accredit more than one register in any particular occupation.
