Mr Howard’s Veincentre Clinic Sessions

Veincentre Colchester
Tuesday: 8:00 – 18:00

Mr Howard works at Veincentre Colchester on a Tuesday. If you book an initial consultation with Mr Howard, all your future appointments will be with Mr Howard throughout your treatment journey. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Mr Howard on a Tuesday (as will all future follow-up appointments).

Occasionally Mr Howard may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than a Tuesday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Mr Howard’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with another consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/date to book.

Please note that due to holidays Mr Howard may not be available every Tuesday.
