Pitfalls of varicose veins at private hospitals

  • Most will insist on a referral letter from your G.P.
  • Most private hospitals in Scotland will offer vein surgery first
  • You will have to insist you want endovenous vein treatment
  • Over half of Scottish vein surgeons still do not do endovenous work
  • One Private Clinic says they are in Glasgow, then refer you to Manchester
  • Some surgeons will offer new vein treatments under G.A. not L.A.
  • Some do VENEFIT RF treatment and also multiple small cuts/phlebectomies ( scars )
  • You will have to be admitted in most as a day case ( no reason )
  • You may face additional room and anaesthetic charges of up to £1000
  • Ultrasound scanning to help treatment choice is often not routine
  • The scan is done at a different time by someone else and costs extra
  • Most surgeons are not interested in treating your thread veins ( time consuming )
  • Private hospital websites usually do not quote itemized costs
  • Some of your fee may go to paying for expensive TV adverts and marketing
  • Your first phone enquiry is answered by a telephonist not a nurse
  • You will probably not get a follow-up after-care enquiry call
