UK Vein Clinic has been working closely with Bupa to agree terms for medical insurance members. UK Vein Clinic was established to provide world class treatment at a price that works and we are delighted to be able to offer these exclusive benefits. It means that patients insured with Bupa can be reassured that all fees for treatment are covered in full by their Bupa insurance policy. No hidden or unexpected fees, just peace of mind.
To achieve this, UK Vein Clinic have agreed a range of prices from the 1st January 2020 that ensure all varicose vein treatment provided under a Bupa policy, will be fully funded. This agreement covers all consultations, scans, treatment with endovenous radiofrequency ablation or foam sclerotherapy and aftercare.
Our process starts with a combined appointment, which consists of a consultation with our vascular specialist and ultrasound scan with our vascular sonographer. The vascular specialist will undertake an examination and Bupa members are also asked to complete the Aberdeen Questionnaire to assess physical and psychological impacts from vein disease. Specifically the extent to which it causes pain, affects work and social life as well as other psychological factors. Data collected at this stage will form the benchmark against which we’ll assess the success of the treatment provided to you.
The gold standard in varicose vein treatment
UK Vein Clinic follow best practice guidelines for treatment as set out by the National Institure of Clinical Excellence and the European Society of Vascular Surgery. Following the disgnostic scan we will recommend one of three distinct treatment pathways.
Following a short 15 minute period of recovery, our patients can normally return home and resume normal activity. Patients are provided with compression stockings to aid healing.
Your final confirmatory scan
All truncal veins treated are scanned a second time to ensure your peace of mind that the treatment has been successful. A second follow up Aberdeen questionnaire is completed. At this point you will be discharged.
