Fife Clinic Regulated by Healthcare Improvement Scotland

Aesthetic Spirit is H.I.S. approved.

What does this mean?

Healthcare Improvement Scotland (H.I.S.) Is the Scottish Government regulator. In April 2016, it was announced that private clinics which have practicing Doctors, Nurses or Dentists must be registered or risk violating the law.

Why is this?

There is a lack of regulation in the medical aesthetic industry. This initiative is to help safeguard the public.
To be registered with H.I.S. means that all staff (Including non medical) related to the clinic have completed the lengthy process to achieve registered status. This process includes background checks, checks on qualifications and insurances, an annual fee has been paid, the clinic has been scrupulously assessed and inspected in terms of it’s facilities and clinical safety, but also that the appropriate operations management and protocols are in place.
We are delighted to have been H.I.S. regsitered since the beginning, and we are one of only a handful of independent clinics to be registered by HIS in Fife.
This regulation is for the public good and safety. It is also our responsibility to make the public aware that any premises or individual operating out with H.I.S. and conducting botox treatments are breaking the law.
