Mrs McLean of Harrogate had a consultation with consultant vascular surgeon Professor Michael Gough at Spire Harrogate Clinic in November 2012 and had varicose vein surgery at Spire Leeds Hospital in January 2013.
The whole experience was smooth and easy

Mrs McLean shares her experience with us:
"I had considered seeing a specialist about my varicose veins for some time. I read on the internet that Spire was offering free consultations with one of its leading varicose vein surgeons at its new clinic in Harrogate and decided to go along. The clinic at Mowbary Square was more convenient for me than a journey to the hospital’s main base in Roundhay, Leeds.
"At that stage, I hadn’t decided whether surgery was for me. I was also not familiar with Spire Leeds Hospital and so found it easier to meet the consultant and the nursing team in Harrogate instead.
"Once I had booked into the clinic, via email, I went along to the appointment with a friend and was seen promptly by the consultant. I was given a guide price and information about the surgery and after due consideration, decided to book my surgery at the hospital’s main site in Leeds.
"I felt the whole experience was as smooth and easy as it could have been”
