Do you have an aesthetic expert who loves using a cannula with dermal fillers?

And prefers the insulin needles for administering botulinum toxin?

Are you drowning in spare needles and Azzalure® green syringes?

Are you loathed to throw those perfectly good needles and syringes away?

Well then read on for information regarding a great charity that uses the above to great effect…

I joined my mum’s clinic (The Cindy Knight Clinic) in 2007 as Practice Manager, and during that time I found that we were wasting a lot of medical items that were part of the dermal filler packs and toxin packs.

I was frustrated that those needles went out of date without use being found. So I researched and found a charity called Intercare that send unused sterile needles and syringes to Africa.

I persuaded Cindy to keep a pot on her table and any unused needles are popped in there and at the end of the week I transferred them in a box – that box soon filled up!

Every six months I send the needles and syringes to Intercare, using their protocols that they send on an email, which is basically a form that I sign.

They do pay for postage but I prefer to pay myself – using MyHermes is a bit cheaper and ensures that Intercare is not forking out with money that can be used for the charity.

I always get a letter of thanks, which is nice and also contributes towards the business’ CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).

I even had a letter of thanks directly from Africa last time, as I sent loads of Azzalure syringes, which were very useful apparently.

Well, my pot is yet again full, so I shall be sending the next lot off – makes me feel good that they are not wasted.

This may not be the most exciting of news but I feel it is very important to let the aesthetic industry know and make them aware as a small act makes a big difference.

I am grateful to Consulting Room for allowing me to put up a little blog together in this regard.
