Referring a Patient

We aim to provide a friendly, personable service that supports your clinical evaluation, and to communicate with you as rapidly as possible. If you have any queries about a potential equine referral or wish to discuss a horse that you have referred, do not hesitate to contact us.

The reception for referral booking is open Monday to Friday, from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. After you have contacted us about a referral, we are happy to contact the client directly to organise appointment times and details.

If you have any queries, you are welcome to contact the Equine Centre during office hours for an update. After discussion with you, a final report will be sent to you and copied to the owner. In the case of direct referrals for imaging, the diagnostic imaging findings will be discussed with you as soon as possible and a written report with accompanying images will be provided.

We can provide copies of any scintigraphic or MR images in a format suitable for you to use. We welcome feedback on progress of cases.

Direct Referral Service for Imaging only

A direct referral service for imaging only is available, including electronic referrals; please talk to us about your requirements.
