Varicose veins are a common problem, affecting up to 1 in 3 adults in their lifetime. They are usually a sign of an underlying venous insufficiency.
Thread veins can appear anywhere on the body but are mostly evidenced on the legs and face. They are more common than varicose veins, affecting up to 80% of adults.
Leg ulcers appear as broken skin in the lower leg or feet. We have been successfully treating venous leg ulcers for over 20 years.
Upfront and fixed prices. Find out exactly what you’ll pay before attending. Medical Insurance should fund varicose vein treatment.
We just do veins and are the most experienced clinic in Europe. We strive to provide patients with the best possible service in a friendly environment.
Our fixed-cost treatment prices are inclusive of both the clinic fee and the consultant fee. With us, there are no “From…” prices.
All patients, regardless of whether they present with large varicose veins or small thread veins, require a consultation and duplex ultrasound scan prior to undergoing any treatment.
It is impossible to accurately determine your treatment plan until you have attended a consultation and duplex ultrasound scan; however, if you present with varicose veins, the vast majority of patients require a primary treatment of EVLA, to fix the underlying cause, and secondary treatment of foam sclerotherapy (and/or phlebectomies) to treat the reticular surface veins.
Although exact treatment plans will vary from patient to patient (depending on the results of the scan and what veins require treatment) we are able to state fixed prices rather than “from” because our prices for EVLA are per leg, irrelevant of which veins require laser treatment (e.g. Great Saphenous Vein, Short Saphenous Vein, Perforators etc.). Most other clinics’ prices vary depending on how many veins in each leg need EVLA treatment and they will often insist upon you having your legs treated on two separate days.
Further sessions of injections are required for 10% of our patients.
We have included the national OPCS treatment codes for each treatment type to ease comparisons with other clinics. In addition, insurance companies require these treatment codes to confirm the treatment required and authorise accordingly.
We are recognised by all the major health insurers including BUPA and AXA-PPP.

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.
We have had many delighted patients who had been quoted up to £15,000 elsewhere, for varicose veins 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. If you have had a treatment quote elsewhere, we’ll be happy to provide you with a quote for the same treatment with us. 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.
Our detailed response to this question can be found here.
VAT is not payable on most of our procedures but please note that due to thread and reticular varicose veins being deemed to be cosmetic VAT is charged on top of treatment costs. The procedures affected are Thermocoagulation and Microsclerotherapy Injections as a primary or follow-up treatment. In addition any sclerotherapy sessions required as a secondary treatment after follow-up.
Credit Facilities are available on all treatments at Veincentre through Chrysalis Finance. Please contact our patient advisors for more information regarding the credit facilities we offer. Chrysalis require all patients to attend a consultation prior to applying for finance so that you know the exact treatment you require and hence the exact costs (however these won’t differ from the prices outlined on our website).
