With recent changes in Scotland under the Regulation of Independent Clinics legislation all persons or organisations offering private medical services must be registered with Healthcare Improvement Scotland and clinical activity may only be carried out from premises who are registered

 

Who does this legislation apply to?

Below is and extract from the HIS website

“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.”

The Solution.

  • If you are a fully qualified practitioner described in the categories above.
  • If you hold a current membership / registration with your professional body.
  • If you have indemnity insurance for your private practice.

then you can rent clinical rooms at FFT Skin Clinics under our “Practicing Privileges” programme.

This allows you to conduct you practice from a registered facility with all the appropriate services to assure patient safety and exceptional clinical governance.

We offer a range of different services:

Clinical Rooms   

Hire is available by the hour, session, day.  All standard medical consumables are available as part of the room rental fee (standard syringes, swabs, etc).


Clinical Waste

As part of the room rental service FTT will manage the disposal of clinical waste and sharps at no additional cost.


Specialist Consumables

FTT have very competitive pricing arrangements with our suppliers for high cost consumable items. We can make these available to those who have PPs with us on a cost plus basis. All items supplied are only for use on FTT premises and may not be taken offsite for treatments elsewhere.


Bookings

FTT has the ability to manage your patient diary and appointments on the clinic’s patient administration system.


Fee Collection

FTT has the ability to take payments for those with PPs either via card or cash payments and again this would be a chargeable service.
