The Government is committed to ensuring that individuals make informed and safe choices about cosmetic interventions. Since publication of Sir Bruce Keogh’s Review of the Regulation of Cosmetic Interventions, in 2013, we have implemented a number of important changes to that end. A copy of the report is available at the following link:

We are considering options for the effective registration and regulation of those performing cosmetic interventions, and the Nuffield Council’s thorough and thoughtful report will help to inform our thinking about how to take this forward.
