Mr Weir’s Veincentre Clinic Sessions

Veincentre Woking
Tuesday: 8.30 – 16.00

If you book an initial consultation with Mr Weir at Veincentre Woking, all your future appointments will be with Mr Weir in Woking

If you see Mr Weir you can only attend an appointment with him on a Tuesday in Woking.

Occasionally Mr Weir may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on every weekday even if a previous appointment was on a different weekday.

If you are unable to attend one of Mr Weir’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/date to book.

Please note that due to holidays Mr Weir may not be available every week.
