In a world of Amazon, Google, Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews, we’re pretty used to looking online to check up on any goods or services we’re thinking of paying for. From restaurants to books and movies, it’s become perfectly normal to check reviews by fellow consumers before committing. There’s no reason, then, that private medical services should be any different.
While you’re unlikely to see specific medical reviews on services like Google Maps or Amazon, there are a number of sites that cater specifically to medical service reviews. For the UK you can find good user-written reviews on sites like Trustpilot, doctify, Private Healthcare UK and WhatClinic.
Here are 5 of the highest reviewed private medical clinics in London.
The UK Vein Clinic is London and Manchester’s premier vein treatment clinic. Specialising in diagnosis, treatment and removal of spider veins and varicose veins, the UK Vein Clinic focuses only on procedures and technology that are proven to have the best outcomes for their patients.

Sally Roper wrote “I can't believe how good my legs look. I have hidden in jeans and long skirts for years as I was aware of how bad my legs looked. 6 weeks after my treatment I was proud to wear shorts on holiday. If you are worried about the procedure don't be it is exactly what they say.”
