Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital is responding to concerns caused by sensational “botched” cosmetic surgery programmes with the appointment of a dedicated cosmetic surgery nurse.

Cosmetic surgery nurse Deborah Craig has set up a dedicated clinic at Nuffield Health Bournemouth to allay concerns arising from public unease over cosmetic surgery generated by the television and the media.  Deborah is on hand to offer one-to-one confidential chats with prospective and existing patients to dispel any myths by talking through the procedures and aftercare in detail.

Deborah has a wealth of experience across all surgical fields and now specialises in cosmetic surgery care, says: “Concerns have arisen from an increased public awareness in “botched” operations that have led to potentially dangerous complications. It is important for the public to note the critical differences in care between reputable cosmetic surgeries and those that could have lasting negative effects on their health.

“Our drop-in clinics offer more cosmetic surgery information in a friendly, informal setting. At Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital, we believe it’s really important for people to make an informed decision about whether surgery is right for them. There is absolutely no pressure from us to continue through to the next stage, we are here to support and educate.”

The specially appointed nurse will be available to answer specific questions that patients may have, as well as provide necessary safety information, with advice over the next steps to proceed towards surgery and information over what kinds of aftercare is needed according to different operations.

The next cosmetic surgery drop-in clinic is being held on Saturday March 21 from 11am until 1pm. Numbers are limited, to guarantee a place call the Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital customer services team on 01202 702830 to book in advance.
