BAPRAS joins Which? in fight against laser de-regulation

10th July 2008


BAPRAS today joined Which? and other patient and professional organisations in opposing government plans to stop regulating cosmetic laser treatments from 1 October 2008

Chris Khoo, consultant plastic surgeon and member of BAPRAS said:
“Patient safety must always come first, and BAPRAS is concerned that proposed changes to the regulation of lasers will put patients at risk.

"All patients deserve to be protected by robust regulation. BAPRAS is concerned about the rapid growth of potentially harmful cosmetic treatments without proper regulation. We join Which? in urging the Government to reconsider its decision to scrap the introduction of a regulatory framework for cosmetic treatments and calls for a proper debate that puts patient safety at its centre.
