Our Values & Promises
Veincentre was set up in 2003 by Dr David West, a Consultant Interventional Radiologist, and his wife Deborah.
Impressed by what he learned on a training visit to the US, Dr West wanted to radically improve not only the medical techniques themselves but also the culture and process of varicose vein treatment in the UK.
Countless patients across the country were referred to NHS outpatient clinics, examined by a junior doctor, given another appointment for a scan, and returned to outpatients to be told “Your veins are not bad enough we can’t treat you on the NHS”. What a waste of everyone’s time and resources!
In the private sector things were not much better with long winded assessment processes necessitating multiple visits before a treatment plan was agreed and costed. No choice of treatment was usually offered and unreasonable charges were (and often still are) levied for traditional operations which had changed little in decades. Scientific studies on patients’ satisfaction with management of their varicose veins showed poor results.
David was determined to change all that and provide a vein service that truly met the needs and expectations of patients in the internet age. David and Deborah set the following core values and promises.
Honesty | Safety | Effectiveness | Efficiency | Respect | Value for Money
Although no clinic or doctor can, or should, offer guarantees of success or satisfaction of any treatment we can make certain reassuring promises:
From our internal audits and feedback we have received over the last 15 years we feel confident that we are fulfilling these aims and are particularly pleased to note that we have achieved all this at a price is consistently found to be the lowest in the UK.
