Mr Andrew Hillery – Cosmetic Consultant – Permanent Prohibition Order
7 December 2021
The NSW Health Care Complaints Commission conducted an investigation into Mr Andrew ‘Drew’ Hillery, an unregistered practitioner. Mr Hillery provided cosmetic services through his business, Revision and Scar Clinics in Dee Why NSW 2099.
The Commission investigation found that in providing care and treatment to a client, Mr Hillery used excessive treatment that was rough and painful. The Commission found that Mr Hillery did not have the competence to provide the care and treatment to the client and he also made false claims that he was a medical practitioner. The Commission found that Mr Hillery provided a prescription to the client on one occasion, and on another occasion contacted a pharmacy claiming to be a doctor in order to have a medication dispensed to the same client.
Accordingly, the Commission has issued a permanent prohibition order against Mr Hillery in the following terms.
Mr Andrew Hillery, a Cosmetic Consultant, is permanently prohibited from providing any health services, either in paid employment or voluntarily, to any member of the public.
For the purposes of this order, a ‘health service’ is given the meaning as defined under section 4 of the Health Care Complaints Act 1993.
