The vascular clinic examines all vascular related problems including varicose veins, blood vessel damage or blockages, and surgery relating to strokes. It is a consultant led service supported by vascular specialist nurses.

Early identification and intervention of many cases results in improved outcomes for patients, by offering access in familiar and easily accessible sites it enables patients to receive treatment or advice at an earlier stage in their pathway.

For patients who require more extensive imaging, for example CT, MRI etc they will need to travel to the main Hospital sites, but these patients are be minimal or are patients requiring surgery. 

If vascular surgery is required this is performed at either Royal Blackburn or Burnley General Hospital, depending on the type of surgery required, but any following care will be at the local clinic site, reducing visits and travel to the main site to a minimum. 

We are very pleased to announce that as part of our phased expansion of vascular services we now offer appointments at outlying peripheral clinics in Dyneley House GP Surgery Skipton Garstang Medical Centre and Colne Health Centre in addition to our established clinics at Clitheroe Community Hospital, Accrington Victoria Hospital and here at Rossendale Primary Care Centre.
