Jennifer McLeish, whose father is railway maintenance millionaire Alan McLeish, was removed from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register following the incident at her Glasgow clinic, House of Aesthetics, in September 2019.

The patient suffered a vascular occlusion—when an artery or vein becomes blocked—after undergoing a procedure with hyaluronic acid injections. This complication can cause intense pain and, if untreated, lead to skin necrosis and tissue death, also known as gangrene.

Following an investigation, the NMC found that McLeish failed to inform the patient of the risks involved and didn’t obtain informed consent before administering the injections. Additionally, McLeish did not offer follow-up care after being told about the possible vascular occlusion.

McLeish, who refers to herself as an ‘Advanced Cosmetic Injector’ on LinkedIn, was deemed by the NMC panel to have her fitness to practice impaired due to misconduct. After failing to demonstrate that she had improved her practice or shown remorse, she was struck off the register.

The panel’s decision stated: “There has been no evidence provided by Ms. McLeish that demonstrates her insight, reflection, or remorse into her actions and the impact it had on Patient A, colleagues, the wider profession, as well as her understanding of the significance of her actions.”

Without evidence of reflection or corrective measures, the panel determined that McLeish was likely to repeat her actions, posing a risk to the public. The striking-off order will take effect on May 24.

McLeish has been the subject of controversy over the past few years. In 2020, her home in Bothwell, Lanarkshire, was firebombed, and her beauty salon was ram-raided in what appeared to be a gangland vendetta.

Chilling CCTV footage showed two balaclava-clad men attempting to break into her salon with a hammer before fleeing in a vehicle. The clinic, located in Glasgow’s Dennistoun area, closed permanently following the attack.

This incident occurred a month after her home was firebombed when her Range Rover was set ablaze with a petrol bomb. Later, graffiti containing offensive slurs was found outside a gym near her home in Hamilton, further targeting her.

In February, McLeish put her luxury home on the market following these violent attacks, adding to the turmoil surrounding her life and career.
