Having vein disease symptoms is more than just a cosmetic problem. Varicose veins are a visual indicator of vein disease at an early stage, and treatment is advised to prevent future, potentially dangerous complications.

Access to the country's top vascular specialists has never been more complicated for patients with vein disease, appointments are reserved almost exclusively for those with advanced symptoms. UK Vein Clinic is out to improve access to treatment and advice. We're giving patients the chance to hear Professor Stephen Black and his team speak about vein disease, as well as ask questions and get responses that are unique to you and your condition.

Professor Black explains why he believes vein disease isn't given enough attention. Treatment in the UK lags behind that of many other developed countries, owing to a lack of patient knowledge of the need for treatment and the NHS's financial resources.

Sanjay Patel and Vanessa Livingstone will join Stephen. Sanjay is a lower limb specialist with expertise in venous and arterial leg ulcers, and Vanessa is a specialist vascular nurse who assists patients from diagnosis to recovery.
