The pain and blood was excruciating - stop rogue traders performing laser surgery now

Niki Richardson started this petition to Health Complaints Commissioner

That’s my face - left bleeding, burnt and grossly infected after surgery. It’s appalling - unqualified ‘beauticians’ are currently performing dangerous laser surgery instead of professional doctors or nurses in Australia.

It’s terrifying how many ‘practitioners’ self teach online and are freely able to purchase laser equipment without being a qualified doctor. The risks are high - deep burns, high grade infections, permanent scarring and cardiac arrest from the lack of anesthetic.

The past 6 months have been hell. Legislation in Australia needs to be changed to prevent unqualified persons from performing laser surgery.

Please help me get the government to follow the UK and America in legalising against non-medical professionals performing high-risk laser surgery.
