    Surely there are more than one element to successful businesses? Combining Lord Sugar’s contacts, business acumen and experience with clinicians, buying in clinical expertise, writing the best protocols, accessing the best training courses, maybe even higher education courses such as a Masters in Aesthetics and combining this with clinical shadowing and mentoring from his contacts all add to the mix of a successful business!

    I don’t understand your logic of if you’re not a very experienced clinician in all aspects of aesthetics you can’t set up a business in this field?

    It’s the kind of ‘Aesthetics Elitism’ which personifies everything wrong with the industry. Unfortunately nurses bring shame upon their profession by jealousy of those who do well whilst medics praise each other.

I feel sorry for the patients that they will treat, the only winners here are the greedy business people who back these types of medical practices.
