How To Choose A Private Vein Clinic A Guide For Varicose Veins Treatment

Recently I received a message via the website
from lady who wanted to know what criteria she should look for when when choosing a Private
vein clinic. Well, my first piece of advice is to check
the clinic is registered with the Care Quality Commission. That is the regulatory body that inspects
all NHS hospitals all private hospitals and clinics and it ensures that the treatment
being provided is to the necessary standard. I will provide the link to the CQC – the care
quality commission in the box below. The 2nd piece of advice is that you should
check that the doctors who are going to provide your treatment are on the specialist register
of the General Medical Council. That way you can be assured that they have
the necessary training and expertise to carry out your treatment. Once again, I will leave the link to the General
Medical Council website in the box below. My 3rd piece of advice is that you should
ask for testimonials. If patients and clients have received good
treatment they are usually more than happy to provide feedback. And your doctors and the clinic should be
able to provide you with lots of testimonials. Now a very good website which is independently
run and which has been approved by the General Medical Council is a website called “I want
great care”. I will provide the link in the description
box below. As I have said it is an independent website
it is moderated and peer reviewed and you can be assured that the testimonials and feedback
are genuine. You should look on this website to see if
the clinic or the doctors that you are considering having treatment with have had any feedback
on this website. It has been described as the “the trip advisor
for doctors and clinics”. My 4th piece of advice is that you should
check with your GP. Your GP is in a good position to judge the
medical expertise of the clinic and of the doctors involved. He may well have had previous patients of
his who have had treatment there and he may have received feedback as well. So it is always worth checking with your GP
1st before deciding about a clinic or a doctor for your treatment. Finally beware about extravagant or very wild
claims. Make sure you differentiate between advertising
and hype and medical fact. If a clinic says it can “cure you of varicose
veins” beware. If the clinic claims the procedure can be
done in half an hour or an hour or during a lunchtime beware. And beware claims of success rates without
any qualification. Things like “95% success” without saying exactly
what the definition of “success” is. Now I hope you found this information helpful
in making your decisions about which click to choose. If you have please do click the link above
— that way you will be amongst the 1st to see my next video. If you have any comments about this video
or any other aspect of the vein care centre do please leave it in the comments section
below. I will do my best to get back to you as soon
as possible. Thank you for watching my video.
