“commissioned by the Department of Health to develop qualification requirements for the delivery of a number of non-surgical cosmetic interventions and hair restoration surgery with the aim of improving and standardizing the training available to practitioners”.
HEE – Health Education England – became operational in June 2012. It is an executive, non-departmental public body of the Department of Health whose main initial aim was the provision of national leadership and training and education in England’s public health workforce.
Its remit has widened of late as a result of Professor Sir Bruce Keogh’s 2013 Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/review-of-the-regulation-of-cosmetic-interventions). This being stimulated by thy PIP breast implant outcry that started in April 2010 and itself prompted a governmental Report (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/poly-implant-prothese-pip-breast-implants-final-report-of-the-expert-group) in 2012. Whilst the perpetrator of the fraud was convicted for his willful misrepresentation of defective mammary prostheses it exposed a certain lack of regulation in Great Britain, and indeed Europe, of the medical devices industry and, in fact, the cosmetic service sector.
