"IVS has provided an efficient vascular technologist service at Acute Pennine for many years. The service is of a high standard covering many areas from carotid disease to toe pressures. The service has been responsive to changing pressures in the NHS such as acute stroke services."

Mr M Madan, Clinical Director for Vascular Services and Consultant Vascular & Endovascular Surgeon,  Northern Care Alliance NHS Group


"We have offered endovenous surgery at Airedale Hospital for the last 4 years. We offer a one stop clinic where patients are seen by the surgeon and scanned by the IVS sonographer and listed for surgery as appropriate. We do RadioFrequency Ablation of the long and short saphenous veins with avulsions under local anaesthetic for the vast majority of patients.

IVS has been an integral part of this setup from inception. They provide and experienced sonographer both in the clinics and in theatres.They provide printed reports after each scan and come to theatre with the appropriate catheters and machine - catheter packs, ultrasound machine, tumescent anaesthetic pumps etc. They look after the maintainance of all their machines. 

I have found them to be extremely professional and reliable and look forward to working with them for many years."

Mr M A Mathew, Airedale Foundation NHS Trust


"The service for DVT assessment provided by IVS is excellent. The staff are always extremely accommodating despite the huge demand on the service."

Dr Stephen Boodoo, Physician Acute Medicine, Northern Care Alliance NHS Group.

"McCollum Consultants use IVS for all their medico-legal ultrasound Duplex imaging. We find the IVS service to be incredibly reliable and efficient."

Mr Richard William-Lees, McCollum Consultants.


I have worked alongside IVS for over 20 years in vascular research and as a practitioner in stroke prevention. 

IVS are a highly experienced and reliable clinical team.  We rely on accurate and prompt reporting of carotid Doppler scans to target stroke prevention for our patients. We have 100% confidence in their clinical acumen and reporting.  We work closely with IVS and the vascular surgical team at MFT referring patients on for urgent surgical opinions based on their reliable reporting. IVS are a key part of our Urgent TIA clinic and in the prevention of stroke in our region. 

We in the team and our patients are very grateful for their professional and high quality service.

Sarah Welsh, Advanced Nurse Practitioner TIA Clinic, Wythenshawe Hospital


I am a venous Nurse Practitioner and have worked closely with IVS for many years. They undertake all my colourflow Duplex venous scans. I have always found their service to be outstanding and very reliable, and the staff are always willing to discuss their results if necessary. They are willing to undertake extra scans if time allows, and they are all very professional and specialised in their knowledge. 

Sally Boyle, Advanced Venous Nurse Practitioner, Wythenshawe Hospital. 


“The vascular service at Oldham has used the IVS service for several years now on an in-house basis. We have found the standard of reporting and efficiency of IVS to be out-standing and would hope to continue using the service for the foreseeable future”

“IVS have a long and successful history of producing high quality, patient focussed services based upon their extensive laboratory experience in a prestigious Teaching Hospital Vascular Unit.

Their staff are of the highest quality, well-trained, caring and up-to-date. I have no hesitation in recommending IVS as a first-rate vascular laboratory provider.”

Philip Lewis

“IVS has provided an essential vascular lab service to the surgeons and physicians for the last few years. It has lead to a significant reduction in invasive radiology procedures, and has provided essential support for the vascular department.

Specifically they provide reliable results in patients with peripheral vascular disease, cerebrovascular problems, aneurysms, DVT, graft surveillance and other vascular pathologies. The knowledge that the vascular lab is covered for staff annual and sick leaves is important as it prevents any interruption in the service throughout the year.”
