First free consultations at Norwich Vein Clinic are a big success

On Saturday, I held my first free consultation clinic in the Spire Norwich Hospital and I am pleased to report it was a great success.

We had always felt there was a need in the city, that is why I joined forces with Jim Clarke, an established vascular surgeon to open the Norwich Vein Clinic.

Our first step was to mirror the successful free 15-minute clinics I had held in both Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds. This gives people who are concerned about their veins the opportunity to come and speak to me free of charge before we decide if there is a problem and what the best course of action is.

The clinics are a great way to educate people about what treatments are out there. I sit down with them to discuss their ailments and decide how best to treat them.

There is no pressure, but if they want to be treated then they would come back for a full consultation before we start the work.

The fact that we had 20 potential new patients visit the consultation clinic shows there is a need and that people want to seek help about all manner of varicose problems.

I discussed with patients all the new techniques that can fight and cure varicose vein problems, including Clarivein and Microsclerotherapy.

We were surprised but delighted by the uptake and I will now be holding more clinics in Norwich, Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds over the coming months.
