June started well with the Queen’s Jubilee, what a treat to have a 4 day weekend and I loved watching all the pomp and ceremony in London from the comfort of my living room (it looked exhausting!)! I don’t know about you, but I love the light evenings at the moments and as we near the summer solstice I’m always extra motivated to make the most of the extra daylight hours. Even leaving work at 8pm feels like an early finish when it’s still daylight. I’m keeping everything crossed for a sunny month!
June also sees me as busy as ever … I’m currently hurtling up the country by train Edinburgh-bound courtesy of HA Derma, the distributor for IBSA who make my favourite products Profhilo, Aliaxin and Viscoderm. I am privileged to be in the company the best aesthetic practitioners for an anatomy and injection masterclass. It genuinely feels that life has really got back to normal post-covid now that I’m actually leaving the clinic to study instead of opening my laptop to join a Zoom event. I haven’t been to Edinburgh for many years and I’m really looking forward to it! I’ve even packed my trainers for a quick trot around Holyrood Park … I’m staying so close it would be rude not to although it doesn’t look flat (unfortunately)!
Onto clinic news … I couldn’t be more excited to welcome a new nurse to Skin Deep Clinic. I was amazed at the volume of applications for the position and narrowing down the applications to decide who to interview was no easier than deciding who to recruit as all I wanted to take all three final candidates!
Sophie Dickens accepted the position and I’m thrilled to say she will be joining me at the end of June to shadow my clinics 2 days per week initially before completing her formal training days in August. You’ll no doubt be meeting her in person later in the year but for a sneaky peek of Sophie take a look at my social media, and thanks to everyone for welcoming her on my announcement post.
I just want to apologise in advance for planned internal building work in reception at the clinic scheduled to start at the end of June. A new treatment room is being created in the area we currently have separated by the glass dividers. The waiting area will be temporarily moved, and dust dividers fixed in place. Hopefully, the inevitable noise and disruption will be minimal.
This does bring good new though, this new room will be Sophie’s dedicated treatment room, which means we will be able to run clinics at the same time. So, availability of appointments will improve by September at the very latest once both Sophie and I are happy for her to work unsupervised. Having the extra treatment room will mean that I’m on hand during some of her clinics too.
Still on my journey to Scotland! I can almost recite the list of stations on this route now…Wigan…Preston…Carlisle…and we haven’t even reached Wolverhampton yet!
Here’s to a sunny June and I look forward to welcoming you to my new and improved premises and growing team. As always anything you need, or any queries please do just get in touch.
