Mr Franklin practised as an NHS doctor for 23 years, which included 12 years as consultant vascular surgeon at Imperial College NHS Trust where he performed a full range of arterial, venous and emergency vascular surgery. During this time, he also introduced many minimally invasive techniques and treatments to the NHS. For 10 years, Mr Franklin was also a programme director of the world-renowned, annual International Charing Cross Venous Course in which 5,000 surgeons attended every year.

Mr Franklin is one of a very small number of vascular surgeons in the UK with extensive acute COVID-19 experience. At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Ian Franklin returned to the NHS Charing Cross Hospital after suspending his private practice and spent several weeks on the frontline attending COVID-19 patients. During which, it became clear that many of those with COVID-19 develop thrombotic (blood clot) problems that can lead to serious effects on blood circulation. Ian Franklin has now reopened his private practice.
