Varicose vein treatment specialist Veincentre has unveiled its expansion plans for the new year after pledging to open 10 more clinics in 2022.
The company, whose flagship clinic is based in Stoke-on-Trent, already has 16 clinics across the UK including recently opened sites in Cardiff and Cambridge.
Now Veincentre hopes to add a further 10 locations to its growing portfolio over the next 12 months in a move which would create more than 50 new jobs.
The company has identified the north east of England, Scotland and London as its key growth areas for 2022.
The expansion forms part of the company’s aim to make its treatments more accessible and affordable for all.
The hope is that patients will no longer need to travel more than one hour to receive treatment.

Veincentre CEO Maurice McCloughlin said: “We’re looking forward to implementing our ambitious growth strategy in 2022 and continuing to position Veincentre as the go-to providers for conditions related to venous insufficiency, especially varicose veins, thread veins and certain venous ulcers.
“Despite the pandemic, we’ve seen a pleasing increase in the number of patients seeking treatment and have seen our business grow as a result, adding six new clinics and more than 30 staff to the team.”
Veincentre says its new clinics will have a “strong emphasis on investment in staff and equipment.”
Maurice added: “As we look to push forward into 2022, we know there are more people that would like local access to our super specialist services, therefore we plan to invest again in new clinics, staff, training, and the latest medical equipment to ensure our patients can continue to benefit from our dedicated facilities, our accessibility and the excellent quality of care provided by all our people.”
Veincentre was founded in 2003 by vascular specialist Dr David West and his wife Deborah.
Originally operating from their family home in Ashley, Staffordshire, the company has grown into the UK’s leading specialist in varicose veins treatment.
