The Referral Process

Referrals: There really is no substitute for actually examining a patient and getting an authoritative history from the owner. One of the limitations of seeing patients in general practice is the relatively short contact time that one with the patient and the client, which is why Anita allows a whole hour for a first consultation - to examine the patient and take a really detailed history, filling out the information on the clinical notes.

Anita sees cases at various clinics in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex, but she does so by referral only, which means that if you have a sick pet and would like to consult Anita, please ask your vet to refer you.
