National Care Standards - Independent Specialist Clinics

Date: 02/2004 Category:

National Care Standards for Adoption Agencies, published by the then Scottish Executive. The standards cover independent specialist clinics providing services such as cosmetic surgery and treatment, treatments where lasers are used, and weight management treatments. **Please note these standards were written in 2004 when the definition of an independent clinic was different to the current legislation from April 2016. For clarity, independent clinics are defined in the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 as clinics that are not part of a hospital and from which a medical practitioner, dental practitioner, registered nurse, registered midwife or dental care professional (clinical dental technician, dental hygienist, dental nurse, dental technician, dental therapist, orthodontic therapist) provides a service, which is not part of the National Health Service. The term ‘service’ includes consultations, investigations and treatments. Therefore, nurses and midwives are not exempt from this regulation.
