Professor David Sines discusses the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners' public protection priorities for the upcoming year

The Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) has set out an ambitious plan for 2023 designed to promote the health and safety, and protection of members of the public. It plans to further design and implement high standards of performance and practice among non-surgical cosmetic practitioners and hair restoration surgeons. It will do this by including the definition, creation and maintenance of an effective structure to inform the standard of professional education and training among non-surgical cosmetic practitioners and hair restoration surgeons as an integral component of the Government’s proposed licensing scheme for England. It is the Council’s intention to work in close alliance with the Cosmetic Practice Standards Authority (CPSA) to update and extend both our current practice and education and training standards in alignment with new standards of expected to be set by the Department of Health and Social Care within the next 18 months.

JCCP practitioner registrants and approved qualifications, education and training provider organisations are recognised, approved, and registered by the JCCP in line with Professional Standards Authority (PSA) and JCCP/CPSA accredited standards. For practitioner registrants this requires evidence of the possession of relevant knowledge, experience or qualifications leading to core and modality specific competency as set out by the JCCP’s sister body the CPSA in its practice standards (CPSA, 2018) and by the JCCP’s Competency Framework (JCCP, 2018), adherence to a published Code of Practice and Standards set out by the JCCP/CPSA (JCCP and CPSA, 2020), good character, compliance with premises/infection control/health protection standards and possession of adequate insurance and indemnity cover in relation to treatments provided. The JCCP has also decided to continue to offer free membership to those persons who are insured with Hamilton Fraser for a further period of 2 years. All registered healthcare practitioners who have ‘Professional Indemnity Insurance’ with Hamilton Fraser will be offered the opportunity to ‘opt in’ and join the JCCP Practitioner Register (subject to an agreed set of additional criteria related to JCCP standards).
