Our experienced team means that we can deal with surgical and medical cases in-house, allowing you to follow your own cases with clinical freedom and support.
We believe our patients deserve to have 24-hour care provided by the professionals that their owners trust, and our in-house OOH provision means you’ll have a continuity of cases.
