Working at Veincentre

“I am very proud to be working at Veincentre, widely recognised as the foremost specialist vein clinic in the UK, as it is dedicated to providing the highest quality care for varicose veins but at a reasonable cost, especially when so many NHS hospitals are now not treating varicose veins. The dedication of the whole team in ensuring an exceptional experience for all patients is fantastic, whilst the friendly, collaborative working culture allows me to concentrate on providing the highest quality care within a supportive environment.”
