The British College of Aesthetic Medicine (BCAM) is the UK’s leading representative body for doctors and dentists practising aesthetic medicine. We promote safe and ethical practices, educate the public, lobby the government and strive to maintain the highest standards.

BCAM was founded in 2001 to encourage regulation within the aesthetic practice and help to make aesthetic medicine safer for the general public. We will soon be celebrating our 23rd anniversary and with support from qualified professionals, the College can provide a unified representative voice for the benefit of doctors and patients alike.

We are committed to maintaining the highest professional standards of practice in aesthetic medicine in relation to clinical practice and patient care. We provide educational and professional development activities and opportunities for our members and support research and auditing. Our Annual Clinical Review is used by the DHSC to inform thinking and influence decision-making, and our conference and educational events are well-supported and highly respected. We regularly collaborate with medical, governmental, regulator, academic and other such bodies as may be concerned with any of the aspects of aesthetic medicine, whilst also providing educational information and advice to the public and patients.
