Once you’ve made up your mind that you would like cosmetic work carried out, it’s time to start looking around to determine where to have your treatment. On top of price, proximity and surgical experience, one thing it’s important to look out for is CQC registration.
The CQC, or Care Quality Commission, is a government-funded organisation whose job it is to make sure that hospitals and surgeries adhere to the standards set by the government. If your clinic isn’t CQC registered, you might want to think about looking elsewhere.
Checks carried out by the CQC include those making sure that clinics meet minimum requirements in quality and safety, ensuring a clean and legitimate surgery. This includes assessing the cleanliness of the surgery, the manner in which patients are treated by the staff, and the food and drink on offer in the clinic. Surprisingly enough, it isn’t yet a condition that all practising surgeries or clinics meet these standards.
When you’re having any kind of cosmetic treatment or surgery, you need to accept a certain degree of risk, but should obviously seek to minimise it by making the right decisions. It’s important to know that you’re getting the best treatment possible.
Making sure you stick to CQC registered clinics is one step you can take in reducing your level of risk and staying safe. For patients in the Bristol area, this means heading to Quinn Clinics – who are currently the only independent doctor-led CQC registered practice in Bristol, making them a clear frontrunner when it comes to sourcing safe, trusted cosmetic surgery.
