Varicose Veins - Basic Prices
Varicose veins are caused by failure of valves in the veins that normally ensure flow of blood in only one direction; from foot to heart. The commonest treatment required to fix the underlying cause of varicose vein problems is EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation treatment) followed by Foam Sclerotherapy injections to treat the blood in the veins on the surface of the legs. This treatment plan follows NICE (National Institute of Health and Care Excellence) guidelines.
As such, the price list below is based around the commonest treatment of definite varicose veins which is EVLA and Foam Sclerotherapy.
Fixed Cost Treatment Prices
All our prices include both the clinic and consultant fee.
Self-funding patients will receive one invoice from Veincentre only, you will not receive a separate invoice from the consultant for their fees. We are not like the vast majority of private hospitals where you will receive one quote/ invoice from the hospital and one from the consultant.
The below price list outlines the costs involved in each of the 4 stages of our standard patient pathway found here.

Why are we cheaper than other clinics?
This is a question we are frequently asked. Click here to read our answer.
We strongly disagree with misleading statements issued by private hospitals and clinics to try to justify high prices like "As in many areas of life you get what you pay for". This principle just does not apply to private medicine.
See our blog on UK Private Medicine Prices which exposes the ridiculous variation in prices of private medicine which bear no relation to experience, reputation, quality or service.
We have had many delighted patients who had been quoted up to £15,000 elsewhere, for treatment over several sessions, and had their entire treatment undertaken by us at one visit for under £2,000. Most hospitals are very cagey about their prices. Ask them to quote a fixed price and see what we mean.
VAT is not payable on most of our procedures but please note that due to thread veins being deemed to be cosmetic VAT is charged on top of treatment costs. The procedures affected are Thermocoagulation and Microsclerotherapy Injections as initial or subsequent treatment after undergoing EVLA, Embolisation, Clarivein, Foam Sclerotherapy, Avulsions/ Phlebectomies or Sapheon.
