The express.co.uk has featured Prof Mark Whiteley and his new book “Vein Health and Problems in Lockdown and Isolation“.

In an article entitled “Work from home risks: the best ways to work to prevent DVT risks amid warnings“, Prof Mark Whiteley is featured.

Described as “the UK’s leading Consultant Venous Surgeon and founder of The Whiteley Clinic“, the article gives a very small taster of the book. The article correctly points out that working from home frequently reduces total exercise during the day, leading not only to increased weight but also risks of venous problems.

Because there are so many things that can go wrong with legs in veins, it is important to know which symptoms and signs need an urgent medical opinion, and which ones can be safely left until after the lockdown is finished.
