Botox Training in the UK - Who Can Inject Botox® in the UK?

Botox training UK is available to eligible practitioners only. Botox in the UK is classed as a prescription only medicine (POM) and therefore can only be prescribed by a doctor, dentist or independent nurse prescriber. A prescriber can take liability for the administration of the drug under their supervision. Nurses who inject Botox without a prescription or who do so using a prescription acquired through a remote consultation with a prescriber are risking their registration by violating the guidance of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).

This means that legally anyone can give a Botox injection as long as they are directed to do so by a prescriber before it is administered, the liability for patient safety rests with the prescriber.

Training for Botox administration is widely sought and various medical professionals within the aesthetic field are eligible to attend Botox training courses in the UK.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Plastic Surgeons
  • Cosmetic Surgeons
  • General Surgeons
  • Dermatologists
  • General Practitioners (GPs)
  • Cosmetic Doctors
  • Registered Nurses
  • Cosmetic/Aesthetic Nurses
  • Independent Nurse Prescribers
  • Dentists

Botox injections are predominantly used as an aesthetic treatment for wrinkles and therefore botox training is usually centred on its cosmetic uses; however there are a number of training courses that will discuss the use of Botox and Botulinum toxins in the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and how it can be used to treat migraines.
