H1: Doctors no longer able to prescribe injectables remotely
Yesterday, the General Medical Council (GMC) made the decision to ban doctors from
prescribing anti-ageing drugs such as Botox(R) over the telephone unless they have already
met the patient.
Botox(R) is a drug and deemed potentially dangerous if it isn’t used correctly and the
GMC now believe that a face-to-face meeting between a doctor and the patient must take
place before the patient can begin receiving injectable treatment.
New rules regarding prescriptions are scheduled to be published later this week.
GMC chief executive, Nial Dickson said: “There are good reasons why these are
prescription-only medicines and we believe doctors should assess any patient in person
before issuing a prescription of this kind.”
In most cases Botox(R) is used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles as well
as cases of excessive perspiration. The treatment is non-permanent, non-invasive and
requires little recovery time for patients
The outcome of this latest news can only be a good thing to people seeking advice on
injectable treatment. From the outset, sk:n [https://www.sknclinics.co.uk ] believe that
injectable treatments should always be done by highly experienced doctors and nurses.
