Varicose Vein Treatment Centre
Book a Consultation

CAN I HAVE CONSULTATION AND EVLA TREATMENT ON THE SAME DAY?

Yes you can! This is particularly popular for patients travelling long distances. 

In order to book in for consultation and EVLA treatment on the same day we will, however, require an indication that you have definite Varicose Veins. Before booking the appointment, we need either:

a) a duplex scan report showing reflux (if you have been seen previously elsewhere)
b) confirmation from your GP that your veins are definitely varicose veins, not reticular or thread veins
c) photos of your legs, which one of our specialists will assess

Unfortunately we insist on one of the above as, if you aren’t suitable for treatment, the consultant and nurse can find themselves with large empty clinics slots.

If it's not obvious you have definite varicose veins, and hence we're unsure whether you'll require EVLA, we will ask that you attend for consultation first and attend again for treatment when we know exactly what treatment you require.
