About me

Ian Franklin was a NHS doctor for 23 years including 12 years as consultant vascular surgeon at Imperial College NHS Trust performing a full range of arterial, venous and emergency vascular surgery. He is now a full-time private venous specialist. He introduced key minimally invasive treatments to the NHS and has written numerous scientific papers, book chapters and a surgical textbook. He trains other specialists in modern vein techniques all over the world and from 2008 to 2018 was the programme director of the International Charing Cross Venous Course held in London every April. He is former council member of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland and chaired the Circulation Foundation for four years. He is the President of the Royal Society of Medicine Venous Forum.

At the start of the coronavirus pandemic in the UK Ian Franklin suspended his private practice and returned to the NHS (Charing Cross Hospital) and spent several weeks on the front line caring for COVID-19 patients at the height of the crisis. During this time it became clear that many patients with COVID-19 develop thrombotic (blood clot) problems which can have serious effects on the circulation. He is one of a very small number of vascular surgeons in the UK with extensive acute COVID-19 experience.
