Nurses banned from getting Botox Prescribed Remotely

The GMC have said that doctors should not prescribe Botox remotely for nurses who practice Botox.

They said "We recognise that patients can benefit from communicating with their doctor by email, phone, or video-link or fax, as long as it is done safely, but our new guidance makes clear that doctors must now not prescribe medicines such as Botox remotely"

This will be problematic for Botox clinics run by Nurses who rely on Doctors to prescribe the Botox (a prescription only medicine) for them to administer.

The Doctor and Surgeon led treatments performed by us here at the Yorkshire Skin Clinic will not be affected by this GMC statement.
