Arrange a Referral

How do I arrange a referral appointment?

The Cardiology referral clinic runs Monday to Thursday 10:00 – 12:00, or at other times by special arrangement.

Sarah AlgarTo arrange an appointment please telephone 01905 355 938 and speak to Sarah Algar RVN.

Or, fill in our Online Referral Form.

Once we have spoken to you, we will then contact the client directly to arrange a suitable time and date to see them, depending on the type/reason for the referral.

We need a full relevant veterinary history, to include blood results, radiographs, ECGs, as appropriate.

We are happy to sort out direct claim insurance with your clients with your agreement and providing they have up to date policy details with them.

We will also send out a referral pack, containing everything they will need to know for their visit.


All Payments must be made at the time of consultation, unless a direct insurance claim has been agreed and pre-authorised prior to treatment. We welcome both insured and uninsured cases.

 Receiving your referral report
