If you book an initial consultation with Mr Wijesinghe at Veincentre Southampton, all your future appointments will be with Mr Wijesinghe in Southampton.

Occasionally Mr Wijesinghe 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 Wijesinghe’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 Wijesinghe may not be available every week.
