Sarah Diamond

Nurse Prescriber/Owner

As a nurse, Sarah is governed by The Nursing Midwifery Council and bound by a code of conduct. It is her duty to treat her patients as individuals, act in their best interest, respect their right to privacy and confidentiality, practice effectively, safely, and promote professionalism and trust at all times.

Sarah graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University in 1999 with a Diploma in Nursing Studies. She spent her early nursing career working in acute medicine. It was here that she consolidated numerous clinical skills and became confident and competent in managing emergency medical situations. As a result, safety is an integral part of her practice.

Following an amazing opportunity to develop her nursing skills abroad, Sarah worked in Australia for a year, before she settled back in the UK and took on the role of intravenous nurse specialist in rare enzyme diseases. A speciality which she continues to practice in today.

Her long-standing interest in the world of medical facial aesthetic treatments and the desire to have more of a work-life balance to fit in with family life lead Sarah to train with the UK’s number one Aesthetic training provider Derma Medical in May 2016.

Sarah strives to provide safe and effective treatments, with realistic outcomes for her patients. Her injecting skills have been developed over 20 years, so you can have peace of mind that you are incapable, safe hands, not only throughout the treatment but in the following days and weeks after.
