Vein and Hernia

Due to the situation in regards to Coronavirus and the need for NHS care delivery as an absolute priority, Mr Birchley will be ceasing private practice for a period of three months as of 15th April 2020 to focus on his NHS work. Private referrals will still be accepted, but no appointments for consultations or treatment will be available during this period. As the situation develops, this will be kept under review.

Any existing patients who have queries or require a virtual follow-up (Facetime, Skype or telephone)  can contact Mr Birchley via appointments@exetervascular.co.uk.
