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.

We have access to advanced diagnostics, seamless round the clock care 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.

We feed into our Kensington 24-Hour Hospital. You’re welcome to perform surgeries here or utilise our ambulance service to transfer your patients to the hospital for more complex procedures. Take a tour of our hospital here.
