Thames Valley Vascular Network

Vascular services across the country have been reconfigured into a 'hub and spoke' model.

This decision was made by NHS England in order to ensure that a high quality of care is delivered for patients with vascular disease nationwide.

In the Thames Valley region, the John Radcliffe Hopsital is the 'hub' or centre. This means that the majority of major elective and all emergency vascular procedures are carried out in the John Radcliffe Hospital. However, minor surgical procedures and outpatient appointments still take place in local hospitals, the 'spokes'.

These hospitals are the Royal Berkshire Hospital and Stoke Mandeville Hospital (part of Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust). Patients requiring specialist vascular treatment may be seen at more than one hospital across the Thames Valley region, and may be transferred between hospitals for their care.

Our Vascular Centre includes a 24 bed vascular ward, dedicated vascular theatres and a state-of-the-art interventional radiology suite.
