Lack of regulation in the booming cosmetic industry has become a significant cause for concern. Unsafe practice and substandard treatments are unacceptable for patient safety and public confidence in the specialty.

As a result of the Professor Keogh report, Health Education England was commissioned by the Department of Health to develop standards of training.

During this consultation, experts from throughout the cosmetic sector contributed to new guidelines which set out to improve training and patient safety.

Harley Academy has been built around the new guidelines in an endeavour to support safer, regulated practice. We aim to deliver a transparent educational world-class service to improve standards within the cosmetic specialty.
