This service is registered with CQC under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 in respect of some, but not all, of the services it provides. There are some exemptions from regulation by CQC which relate to types of regulated activities and services and these are set out in Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 of The Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. Bank Medispa provides a range of non-surgical cosmetic services which are not within CQC scope of registration. Therefore, we do not inspect or report on these services. Bank Medispa was registered in respect of the provision of treatment of disease, disorder or injury. Therefore, we were only able to inspect treatments relating to medical conditions. This includes Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and migraines. The clinic offered other services such as Botox for aesthetic reasons, these services are exempt from regulation.

The individual provider is registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered people’. Registered persons have legal responsibility for meeting the requirements in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and associated Regulations about how the service is run. The service has one clinician who is also the nominated CQC provider. The service employs one manager and two beauticians who are not involved in providing the CQC regulated services.

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Bank Medispa as part of our inspection programme. At the time of the inspection there were no patients attending or receiving regulated services and we were unable to ask them about the service.
