Botastic Aesthetics Limited is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide the regulated activities of treatment of disease, disorder, or injury (TDDI), and surgical procedures from one registered location at the following address: 9 Weeton Way, Anlaby, Hull HU10 6QH. The service is provided in a fully converted detached bungalow with medical treatment room and a further three treatment rooms. The service is centrally located and there is off road parking.

The service is provided by a nurse practitioner. Botastic Aesthetic Limited offers patients a range of services including; Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and surgical thread lifts. Treatments are provided for adults aged 18 and over with appropriate consent. These services are available on a pre-bookable appointment basis. Patients can book appointments directly with the service by phone or online. The service is open for consultations weekly: Monday to Friday 9am to 7pm.

Before visiting we reviewed a range of information we hold about the service and information which was provided by the service before the inspection.

During the inspection:

  • we spoke with the provider/clinician
  • reviewed key documents which support the governance and delivery of the service
  • made observations about the areas the service was delivered from
  • reviewed a sample of treatment records
  • looked at information the service used to deliver care and treatment plans

To get to the heart of patients’ experiences of care and treatment, we always ask the following five questions:

• Is it safe?

• Is it effective?

• Is it caring?

• Is it responsive to people’s needs?

• Is it well-led?

These questions therefore formed the framework for the areas we looked at during the inspection.

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. Botastic Aesthetics 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. Botastic Aesthetics was registered in respect of the provision of treatment of disease, disorder or injury and for surgical procedures. Therefore, we were only able to inspect treatments relating to medical conditions. This includes Botox for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and surgical thread lifts. 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 two beauticians who are not involved in providing the CQC regulated services.

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection at Botastic Aesthetics 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.
