FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
96% drop in EU nurses registering to work in Britain since Brexit vote.
More midwives and nurses are leaving the profession in the UK than joining for the first time on record, with the number departing having risen by 51% in just four years. The figures, which will add to concerns about NHS staff shortages, show that 20% more people left the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register than joined it in 2016/17. The overall number of leavers was 34,941, compared with 23,087 in 2012/13.
Unions say there is a shortage of 40,000 nurses and 3,500 midwives in England alone and they, and NHS trusts blamed the pay cap and workplace pressures. Almost a third of Britain's nurses have a second job, according to research published The public service union Unison found that many are taking on extra hours with agencies to make up for their low salaries.
“Clearly, an action is needed to offset any further loss of EU nursing staff in the near future. But the overall shortage of 30,000 nurses is not a shortage caused by the Brexit vote. The chronic shortage of nurses is the result of years of short-term planning and cuts to training places. A sustainable, long-term approach to workforce planning is desperately needed or another way for these nurses to supplement their income" Says Jason Allan Scott, Founder of Lokkima.
Lokkima is a beauty and cosmetics company that sells machines, franchises and a home delivery fat loss solution. Lokkima's Fat freezing, a treatment that can eliminate people’s fat cells, is becoming a hot new revenue opportunity for Nurses looking to capitalize on Brit’s willingness to open their wallets for a slimmer physique.
Spas, Salons, Clinics and Medical Spas are increasingly offering a procedure called Fat Freezing to shrink love handles, flabby tummies and jiggly arms. These locations are eager to offer the treatment because it represents a way to meet the fast-growing demand for fat-reduction services that don’t require surgery. It is also, they say, a way to get new types of customers in the door.
Lokkima isn’t alone in marketing noninvasive fat reduction machines to nurses to make extra money or a passive income, and some practices offer multiple products to clients. Other options include radio-frequency and laser-based treatments. Fat freezing, however, is the market leader,
Lokkima's Fat Freezing machine uses a technique known as cryogenic lipolysis — fat freezing, or “controlled cooling” — to eliminate fat cells without the risk and time out of work required by surgery. During the treatment, clients recline while a clinician, often nurses in their spare time, affixes a plastic suction cup — sort of like an upholstery attachment to a vacuum cleaner — to the targeted area. The cup — its size and shape vary, depending on the part of the body being treated — is attached by a hose to a machine that hums as it sucks the tissue into the cup and cools it.
Treatment lasts 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the targeted area. The effects are seen over a period of weeks after treatment, as the body eliminates the dead fat cells.
It can take two to four months to see full results.
Lokkima sells its machines and a set of attachments for about £15000. Lokkima says it performed nearly 40 000 treatment cycles on about 25 000 clients and had more than 47 machines installed worldwide since 2012. Treatments go from £200 to £800 a session. For the average nurse, It would take an average of three clients a week receiving one treatment at £350 for a year, to get a “total revenue" of £54,600, where the average salary for a nurse in the UK is between £21,000 to £37,500.
Lokkima Products and procedures are marketed to nurses, as a chance to supplement their income as so many doctors, dentists, hotel spas, clinics and medispas are purchasing Lokkima machinery and non-invasive procedures as a “gateway” treatment that can help grow a clientele of people who might otherwise not get cosmetic treatments or visit their salon or spa.
“I have a great deal of sympathy for the case that nurses amongst others have made on the issue of pay,” Jason Allan Scott the founder of Lokkima says, “I think they do an absolutely brilliant job and if we can help them with extra work through our machines, procedures or our fat loss home delivery system, C'MERE, we are doing our part to help these hard workers make more and still help others .”
Lokkima is one of the leading non-surgical fat loss, facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction businesses in the world. Established in 2012 with its Lokkima non-invasive machines located at the 5* Westin Hotel and Spa in Cape Town, South Africa it has since grown to 14 high-profile global locations.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Jason Allan Scott, Non-Invasives International are pioneers in the emerging field of non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Cryogenic Lipolysis or Fat Freezing is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure for patients who wish to reduce fat on specific parts of their bodies. It is a natural process, where the adipose - or fatty - tissue is cooled, which causes the fat cells to die and be excreted following the treatment. Cryolipo uniquely addresses fat cells without harming any of the surrounding tissues. Research indicates that 89% of fat freezing patients see a positive difference in the way their clothes fit and up to 45% see immediate results.
The Lokkima affiliate program offers a complete business solution for those seeking opportunities in beauty and aesthetic medicine. Lokkima offers training, certification and delivers anywhere in the world. Since inception, the Lokkima movement has provided an exciting alternative to the commercial cosmetic establishment with the Lokkima signature "On location and on demand" approach to beauty and cosmetic services.
