Vet referral

Referring a case to us

If you are a vet who would like to refer a case to Christchurch Veterinary Referrals, please call our reception team on 01473 230999. We take cases from throughout East Anglia at our purpose-built centre just outside Ipswich.

Our team will take a few details from you, then ask you to send over a referral letter and the full patient history. Next, we contact the pet owner to discuss the arrangements before booking an appointment time to suit them. Key services at our independent referrals centre include:

• Soft tissue surgery
• Orthopaedic surgery including joint replacements
• Neurosurgery
• Advanced Diagnostic Imaging including MRI and CT scanning
• Physiotherapy and hydrotherapy

We always offer a polite and friendly service, so your customers and their pets will be made to feel welcome and at ease at what we recognise can be a stressful time.

Once the animal has undergone its procedure and inpatient care, our surgeon will debrief the customer and then send you a detailed report for your files.

If you would like your pet to be referred to us, please call us. We will require your vet to arrange the referral, but we can help you with this.
