Caroline Larissey steps down from joint council for cosmetic procedures

Published 05th Jul 2024 by Michelle Duffield

Larissey’s involvement with the JCCP was originally through a previous work role at Habia as head of quality and standards for over six years, which subsequently progressed to being invited to be a trustee in a personal capacity, as recognition of her contribution and commitment to raising standards in non-surgical cosmetics (aesthetics).

The JCCP has been established as a vehicle to promote patient safety in the world of non-surgical aesthetics and hair restoration surgery. It achieves this by the provision of information/advice to the public and its 'Practitioner Register.

Larissey said, “During my tenure at the JCCP, I had the privilege of supporting its creation and serving as a trustee. The UK hair and beauty sector is vibrant and dynamic, empowering individuals, promotes self-expression, and contributes to overall wellbeing and self-care. With a substantial £4.6 billion contribution to the UK economy, the sector plays a vital role in driving footfall to high streets, supporting jobs, and fuelling growth nationwide. As I step down from this role, I am excited to focus my efforts on championing the voice of the NHBF and the wider beauty sector.”

The NHBF remains dedicated to supporting its Members and the sector in navigating the implementation of the Health and Social Care Act and any resulting licensing scheme.

The NHBF vision is to foster a thriving sector that is respected for the creative careers it provides and where its staffing needs are fully met. The sector continues to be a positive force in local communities, achieving contributing to net-zero targets.

Ahead of the General Election, the NHBF has outlined its recommendations for the next government in its Manifesto, which include recognising the sector's value to the UK economy and communities, promoting apprenticeships and providing support for employers, enhancing the sector's role in supporting community wellbeing and NHS services.

David Sines, chair of the JCCP, expressed his gratitude for Larissey's invaluable contributions, highlighting her support, patience, and perseverance during challenging times. He wishes her the very best in her future endeavours and reaffirms the JCCP's respect and commitment to supporting the sector.
