IVS…at the heart of health

Independent Vascular Services (IVS) specialise in provision of high quality, comprehensive vascular services to the NHS and Private Sector with its team of highly talented and experienced clinical vascular scientists. As the largest independent vascular provider we lead the way in vascular ultrasound, with annual investment in equipment, research and training. IVS is committed to quality improvement, has robust QA procedures and fulfils or exceeds all CQC and NHS standards for service delivery.

IVS is the only service provider in the North West Region which can fulfil all the Vascular Surgical Society and Society for Vascular Technologists of Great Britain and Ireland requirements for service provision.

Vascular disease is the major cause of death in the UK accounting for 40% of all deaths. The risk increases with age, with 17,500 people dying each year between 55-64 years old. By detecting disease early, changes in lifestyle and possibly lipid lowering drugs can slow progression and prolong life.
