Making a referral is easy via our online referral form. The first page allows you to enter relevant details regarding the patient and their history whilst the second page allows you to upload files such as dicoms, PDF files, JPEGs and patient videos.

On arrival of the referral form our administration team will assign a surgeon and send an email to your practice acknowledging receipt of the referral form. Please contact us if you do not receive this email within the same working day.

The assigned surgeon will write a report with their assessment and recommendations including costs where appropriate. You can expect this within 1-3 days for routine cases or within 24 hours for urgent fractures/luxations.

Following this report, if the owners wish to proceed with surgery or a consultation, you can contact our administration team on 07469 969 000 or via email info@ratavetsurgery.co.uk and they will offer you the next available date.

Once this is confirmed with the owner and our administration team is updated we will send you a confirmation email. This will contain the date and time of surgery/consultation along with some key information for the procedure and information sheets for the owner.
