The Branch

We have a large, welcoming reception space, both separate cat and dog wards and consult rooms, prep and theatre, plus air conditioning for those London heatwaves!

We are equipped with ultrasound, dental x-ray, endoscope and in-house lab. Our clients are dedicated to their pets and we are lucky enough to work in a practice where we can thoroughly work-up cases.

We work as a unit – as one team. In each region there’s a network of practices working together, with a 24-hour hospital at their centre.

We call this our hub-and-spoke model, and it’s unique to us. It allows our vets to get support with cases, refer their patients and share expertise and equipment between practices.

Through Medivet’s collaborative approach, we have access to advanced diagnostics, including CT Imaging and seamless round the clock care via our Kensington 24-Hour Hospital, and the input of certificate holders and wider colleagues, which allows us great follow through on our cases when things go beyond first opinion level.

The practice is situated near to Highbury & Islington Station and Essex Road for the Great Northern Line.

Our address is 226-228 Essex Road London Greater London N1 3AP
