MP backs Treatments You Can Trust for choosing cosmetic surgery
15 September 2011An MP has spoken of his support for a service which aims to increase the safety of patients planning to undergo surgical procedures. Colchester's Bob Russell has encouraged his constituents, and people in general, to pay attention to the Treatments You Can Trust campaign, which publishes a register of practices which use properly qualified staff. The campaign is supported by the Department of Health and helps potential patients to avoid practitioners which do not meet its safety standards. "Beauty injections such as Botox aren't just cosmetic products, they are medical procedures that require training and expertise," said Russell. "It is not worth endangering your health for the price of a makeover. I would encourage clinics and providers of cosmetic injections in Colchester to sign up to this register in order to ensure that patient safety is always the priority."
