The Celluma Award for Best Clinic London

Best Clinic categories are awarded regionally. The award is open to clinics that have been open for more than 12 months and will be judged on commitment to excellence in customer service, patient care and patient safety, as well as evidence of good feedback from patients. Aesthetics reserves the right to move your clinic entry to another regional category if deemed appropriate. You will be notified of this change. You are encouraged to keep your entry concise and clear; bullet points and the use of formatting options such as bold, underlines and italics are encouraged to ensure your entry is easy to digest for judges. A strict character limit of 1,700 (including spaces) is enforced for each question and you must not exceed this; however, your entry does not have to meet it. References are included in the character count, although you may supply a reference list as part of your supplementary materials if it exceeds the character count. There will be no voting process and the winner will be decided by the judging panel.
