Prior to my referral appointment, I received a call advising that the practise charges £25.00 for handing insurance claims that are paid directly to them. I said I would be paying the bill myself. On arrival at the practise, reception was chaotic, unfriendly and unprofessional. I had hardly sat down before being asked to pay the £25.00 handling fee despite having previously advised them I would be paying the bill myself. My cat was in for the day. I have no issue with the veterinary care and both vets telephoned me with updates and information when they promised. However, I do have an issue with just about everything else at this practise. When I paid the bill, I asked if it was complete and was assured it was. Shortly after I got home, though, I received a call to say they had undercharged me and I had another £150.00+ to pay. My cat is insured so, before leaving, I had handed my completed insurance claim form to the receptionist. I had ticked the box for my insurer to pay me and even provided a stamped addressed envelope. All the practise had to do was add their information and send it off. However, they sent it to my insurance company electronically with instructions to pay them and not me. My insurer duly obliged. I lodged a complaint with the practise manager. I received a verbal apology and, a few days later, a refund of their incorrect claim. However, I will not be returning.

Our dog Oakley was admitted to this hospital, and we believe he received the best care anyone could wish for. The staff were friendly, and caring, always happy to help. And we were lucky to have an outstanding vet in Mr Jon Shippam. From our first meeting with Jon, we found him to be a very caring man, and throughout our Oakleys stay at the hospital', he informed us of what was happening, every step of the way,which was invaluable to us. We cannot thank Jon and all the staff, including the night shift staff, whose professionalism never faltered. We will always remember them .As will Oakley who is now back to his old self. Paula Del and Oakley Millard
