New Board Appointments
The British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) has appointed a new Chair and three new Board members.
Dr Martyn King, the Association’s Treasurer for the past 5 years, will take the Chair. Dr King is Vice-Chair of the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners and founder and Medical Director of the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group. Consultant Vascular Surgeons Miss Catharine McGuinness and Mr Alastair Lewis and Aesthetic Nurse and Microsclerotherapy Trainer Gaynor Hughes have been appointed to the Board. All are highly experienced sclerotherapy practitioners who are eager to help drive the BAS forward in the next stage of its growth.
Chair Dr King says he is “looking to raise the profile of sclerotherapy for practitioners, the relevant professional bodies and the general public. We have worked in an unregulated industry for too long and must take serious steps to upgrade standards of training and practice in the UK. The BAS is the best platform for sclerotherapy education, information, guidance and mentoring, and we plan to unveil some exciting developments at the annual conference on 23rd May 2023.”
Dedicated to promoting safe and effective treatment for varicose veins and leg telangiectases, the British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) is the foremost source of education and advice for practitioners and the public providing regular CPD events and an informative website. Sclerotherapy is practised by vein and vascular specialists, dermatologists and aesthetic doctors and nurses.
