Network practices comprise large multi-disciplinary centres, including six with direct links to university teaching hospitals, independent practices and a number of corporate managed practices.

The new partners have increased the RSA Vet Referral Network’s geographical scope and also its professional range.  The Network now comprises the following clinicians:

  • 249 ‘Specialists’ as recognised by the RCVS plus
