‘Trust Me I’m a Nurse’ – Save Face contributed to an explosive investigation exposé BBC 1’s Inside Out which exposed two disgraced Nurses, who despite being struck off by the NMC continued to operate Botox parties and home clinics on a vast scale throughout the UK.
For the past few weeks Save Face have been working on an investigation with BBC’s Inside Out West Midlands to shine a light on the unscrupulous practice that is prevalent within the non-surgical cosmetic industry, bringing in to focus the key challenges consumers face when seeking to find a safe, reputable treatment provider.
The 30-minute show was aired on Monday the 7th of March at 7:30pm on BBC 1 to a captive audience of nearly 4 million viewers. Save Face Director, Ashton Collins, who initiated the investigation in to one of the disgraced practitioners, James Kearsey has been working alongside the BBC throughout the investigation and was featured on the show.
It depicts a harrowing view as to how people are being deliberately deceived and manipulated by two unscrupulous former healthcare professionals who continue to masquerade as registered Nurses to exploit unwitting consumers in to parting with their money.
The show’s focus is centered on two disgraced nurses, Jonathan Henk, who calls himself “Jonny Botox and James Kearsey who advertises his services via Facebook on the page Estetica Cosmetics, and also describes himself as a nurse prescriber.
Both men, who, despite being struck and deemed unfit to practice by the NMC continued to run highly successful and lucrative businesses by providing non-surgical cosmetic treatments on a gargantuan scale throughout the UK whilst fraudulently using their former credentials to gain the trust and confidence of their patients.
Mr Henk, 50, describes himself as a nurse of 26 years, but was struck off by the NMC in 2012 for having sex with a mental health patient without her consent.
