About your Practitioner
Deep Blue Skin Technology is led by aesthetic nurse practitioner Gill Thornton. Gill trained as a Registered General Nurse over 30 years ago, with experience including specialist Intensive Care practice to a Theatre Sister specialising in Plastic Surgery. Her passion to help improve skin function led her to become an Independent and Supplementary Nurse Prescriber, being able to prescribe from the British National Formulary, so Gill is able to assess, diagnose and then prescribe the most appropriate treatment or product for visible results.
To maintain registration as an Independent Nurse Prescriber, Gill must regularly re-register with the Nurse and Midwifery Council (NMC).
Nurses have a duty of care for their patients whether in the NHS or Private nursing, this means you will be advised and treated based on good clinical evidence, not on any commercial aspect. Should your problem or concern require a treatment not provided at Deep Blue Skin Technology, you will be advised of this and given referral advice.
About Deep Blue Skin Technology
Deep Blue Skin Technology is a private facility providing a range of treatments. These treatments are cosmetic and elective and are generally sought after by individuals wishing to improve their appearance. However, I recognize that, if left untreated, some of these conditions may have profound effects on patients, through loss of self esteem or social stigma, and am always sympathetic to this.
I am dedicated to providing the highest level of care to patients. As such, the clinic is committed to achieving and maintaining full compliance with the requirements of the Care Standards Act 2000 (as amended by the Health and Social Care Act 2003), the Private and Voluntary Health Care (England) Regulations 2001 and the National Minimum Standards.
The CQC regularly inspect Deep Blue Skin Technology to make sure it meets the Essential Standards of Quality and Safety.
“I am the only clinic of this nature in Harrogate to be registered with the CQC. It is really important to my patients that I can demonstrate safe treatments and a safe environment to practice in”.
