Mr Simon Payne is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon of over 20 years with a particular interest in venous disease (ranging from thread vein treatment through to managing venous ulcers). A board member of BAS (British Association of Sclerotherapists) and one of nine venous specialists on Spire Healthcare’s national advisory panel for reviewing new varicose vein treatment. Mr Payne qualified in 1986 and trained in Oxford, Leicester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sydney, Australia before returning to his home on the South Coast as Consultant Surgeon.
Simon will present a short talk covering what normal veins do, how varicose veins form and how varicose veins can be treated. His aim is to allow you to understand better the many techniques that are offered today to help you, if you suffer with varicose veins.
He will also be able to show some of the audience how their own veins are functioning by demonstrating colour duplex ultrasound scanning. This is similar to a “baby scan” and shows you and your Surgeon how blood flows in your own veins, thus enabling you to choose bespoke treatment which is truly individualised to your personal needs.

Olly Leicester is a health coach. Based in Southbourne, Olly’s been health coaching for almost a year, and he loves the positive impact that coaching can make in people’s health and wellbeing. He coaches people one-to-one: bringing empathy, support and accountability into a 12 week course that slowly changes people’s daily habits.
Olly specialises in coaching middle-aged women who are feeling a lack of positive energy or vibrancy in their lives… He sees people as they are – without any negative judgements…then helps them improve their health, confidence, self-compassion and wellbeing with small, manageable steps. Weight-loss is often a bi-product of adopting these new habits and mindsets. (and restrictive dieting is not part of the program)! Little changes, over time, make massive differences.
