We are passionate about understanding the evolution of small animal diseases and endeavour to nurture and encourage current and future generations of veterinary surgeons through ongoing learning.

We work collegially with specialists across the medical field in the hope that one day companion animals will be seen as equal beings to humans.


Nick Bacon

The new Fitzpatrick Referral Oncology and Soft Tissue Service has begun as it means to go on by attracting two of the most talented and internationally recognised specialists in these disciplines.

We are immensely proud to welcome Professor Nick Bacon and Dr Laurent Findji to the team. This new venture is one of the first steps in establishing a world class service of excellence in referral cancer care and soft tissue surgery that you, your clients and ultimately the animals we act as advocates for expect and deserve.


Jelena Jovanovik
Head of Imaging

At Fitzpatrick Referrals the majority of our patients require diagnostic imaging procedures. This can vary from standard radiography to advanced diagnostic imaging e.g. MRI or CT.

Advanced imaging modalities enable more accurate and timely diagnosis of both routine and potentially life-threatening conditions. By providing this easily accessible and advanced facility our patients can be treated much more efficiently and effectively.
