The simple answer is NO.
There are lots of reasons why ACPB doesn’t believe non-medics will ever be stopped from doing filler and anti-wrinkle treatments.
1. To make a perfectly legal profession illegal would mean a change in the law. And if this was ever done (which is highly unlikely) non-medics would need to be given time to qualify in whatever new qualifications were required to practice. So, three years or so from the date of any change.
2. Reviews of the industry have been going on for years. The JCCP are only due to send their recommendations in 2021. An All-Party Parliamentary Group has just formed to review the situation. The Scottish Government is recommending licensing. This has gone round in circles for years.
3. The last thing the Government wants is more and more medics leaving to do aesthetics – especially since the Covid-19 crisis.
4. A middle-ground where practitioners are licensed, much in the same way as tattoo parlours are licensed is the most likely change – if a change is made. Follow what the Scottish Government is doing.
5. The requirement for level 7 qualifications does not exists and is unlikely to the outline above. Level 7 is post-graduate and there are virtually no professions in the UK which require a post-graduate qualification to practice.
