GP Care launches new Varicose Vein Treatment Service for private patients

GP Care is pleased to announce the launch of a new Varicose Vein Treatment Service for private patients in partnership with Origin Medical.

The GP Care / Origin Medical Service offers leading-edge treatments and exceptional levels of patient care to private patients suffering from the effects – aesthetic, medical or both - of varicose veins.  The Service offers:
  • Latest endovenous treatments – for clinical effectiveness and negligible recurrence
  • Locally-practising Consultant Vascular Surgeons – for reassurance and accessibility
  • 1 to 2 hour outpatient treatment – minimal disruption to the patient’s schedule
  • Local anaesthetic, minimally invasive – avoids bruising, scarring and immobility
GP Care, in partnership with Origin Medical, now brings this service to your patients – a real, local solution at a time when treatment of varicose veins rarely qualifies for treatment under the NHS. 
 
The Service has been set up at the Bedminster Family Practice which offers bright, modern and pleasant surroundings, a separate waiting area and good accessibility with plentiful parking.
 
Patients attend (normally within 10 days) for a consultation and diagnostic ultrasound scan with the Consultant, and for their treatment within 4 weeks.  The final stage is a follow-up with the Consultant to ensure that the treatment has been a success.  Prices are £500 for the consultation and scan and £2,000 (unilateral) or £3,000 (bilateral) for the procedure.
 
The GP Care/Origin Medical service would be delighted to receive referrals from GPs – email gp.referrals@originmedical.co.uk  The service also welcomes direct enquiries from private patients – ask@originmedical.co.uk or telephone 0845 602 9730.
