Surgical cosmetic vein procedure

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

I remember hearing a couple of talks on similar issues and litigation outcomes some years ago at one or two of my national meetings. I wondered whether you would be able to provide contact details of your team/individual who may be able to provide some current data surrounding claims/lessons learnt from the vascular claims in the NHS particularly varicose veins and cosmetic vein treatment.

I have also written to the different defence organisations to ask the same question but also to identify learning when the definition of cosmetic or therapeutic may have been called into question and whether individual professionals’ indemnity did not cover litigation costs.

I want to present a well researched and thought provoking presentation to help educate my national and international peers. Any help that you may be able to provide would be much appreciated.
