    Dr B could have explained how many coils he inserted. Prof Jameel had said it would be around 6 so I was really surprised to hear from a nurse that is was 19 in the end.

    Dr David Beckett and I trained in Interventional Radiology together in Birmingham. We are now colleagues at The Whiteley Clinic in London. His expertise in the minimally invasive treatment of venous conditions is vast and David has been my principal trainer in Pelvic Vein Embolisation (PVE), a procedure in which he is a world leading expert.
