CVS Referrals

Led by Referrals Director Dr Helen Baxter, the CVS Referrals network currently comprises nine referral centres, with further growth planned during 2019. With a mixture of Fellows, Specialists and Advanced Practitioners within the network, our referral centres provide expert support to hundreds of small practices across the UK.

Alongside these dedicated referral centres, we have our Vet Oracle ‘teleservices’, providing specialist reporting and advice for our colleagues in practice, in the disciplines of radiology, neurology, medicine, cardiology, dermatology and oncology.

At the forefront of veterinary medicine and surgery, members of the CVS Referral team pioneer new approaches and techniques, helping to raise the bar in this fast-moving field. They benefit from our commitment to investing in the training and development of people, as well as in cutting-edge facilities and equipment.

Specialist services and resources include:

  • Orthopaedic surgery.
  • Neurology and spinal surgery.
  • Soft tissue surgery.
  • Anaesthesia and pain management.
  • Internal medicine, cardiology and oncology.
  • Dermatology.
  • Diagnostic imaging.
  • Exotic species.
  • Emergency and critical care.
