We fully accept the principles of the Keogh Review and the overwhelming majority of its recommendations for protecting people who choose cosmetic procedures.
Work is already underway on a number of the recommendations.
- the Royal College of Surgeons has set up an inter-specialty committee to ensure standards for cosmetic surgery and will work with the General Medical Council on a code of ethical conduct
- Health Education England is leading a review of training for providers of some non-surgical procedures, such as botulinum toxin (commonly known as ‘Botox’) and dermal filler injections
- creating a breast implant registry to reassure women that if problems arise they can be contacted, kept informed and called in for treatment if necessary
