Consent must be requested for any photographs or videos a practitioner proposes to take of a patient in a consultation or during the cosmetic procedure. The patient must be given information about the proposed use of any images of them, including:

    • the purpose (for example, for medical record only, for advertising)
    • how the images will be used (for example, stored in patient record, shown to prospective patients in

consultations, published on website and posted on social media), and

    • where they will be stored and who will have access. Patient images must be stored on a secure device.

Medical practitioners must not store patient images on a personal device.

Patients must be given an opportunity to view images before consenting to their use in advertising.

Patients have the right to refuse use of their images and a patient cannot be required to agree to use of their images in advertising. Consent for the use of images in advertising must be separate from consent to the procedure. Patients must be allowed to withdraw their consent to use of their images and the practitioner must promptly stop using images (for example, not show them to prospective patients, delete them from advertising) if a patient withdraws consent. A patient’s consent for taking, use and storage of any images must be documented.
