Medical Board publishes Cosmetic Guidelines Submissions

Stephen Wassall

Recently the Medical Board of Australia released some draft guidelines for Medical Practitioners practising Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery.  They sought feedback and received over 600 submissions from doctors, nurses, stakeholders and consumers.  These submissions are published on the Medical Board website and can be at:

http://www.medicalboard.gov.au/News/Past-Consultations/Consultations-March-2015.aspx

The submissions make interesting reading and there appears to be a lot of turf protection with many nurses currently operating outside of doctors clinics sending in petitions from patients.  One nurse even went to the trouble of sending a draft letter to her patients and asking them to submit this under their name.  As a result, some of the submissions received are identical!

It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  If the draft guidelines are ratified then we will see some significant changes in the industry.
