FOI request (FOIR-294336484)
Requested Mon 11 January 2021
Responded Tue 19 January 2021
I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
I would like to request a list of all registered Physiotherapists, Chiropractors, Tattoo Parlours, Cosmetic Clinics and Drug Rehabilitation Centres.
In Hastings and St Leonards you only need a licence from Hastings Borough Council if you are carrying out skin piercing activities. These can be, but are not limited to, body piercing, tattooing, electrolysis, semi-permanent make-up or acupuncture.
Chiropractors and Physiotherapists do not require a licence from us to practice therefore we do not hold this information.
Again, Drug Rehabilitation Centres do not require a licence from us to practice therefore we do not hold this information. They are usually funded by charities or possibly East Sussex County Council (www.eastsusex.gov.uk).
Cosmetic surgery would be dealt with by the General Medical Council or NHS, not Hastings Borough Council.
Please see attached excel sheet in relation tattooists/semi permanent make up.
