It was run by vascular surgeon Eddie Chaloner and was called How to Set up a World Class Vein Surgery Service. It was for surgeons, nurses, healthcare workers and others who work in the field of varicose vein surgery who wanted to know more about the most up to date and effective methods to treat the condition and how to organise an optimally efficient service with outstanding patient outcomes and satisfaction.
