Our Mission ... truly inspirational

"To deliver the most accessible, comprehensive, high quality care available."

In this simple sentence we’ve summed up the entire philosophy of Medivet.

Why are we different from any one of hundreds of other small animal practices across the UK? What’s special about what we do?

Have another look at that mission statement. This describes in a nutshell our passionate belief about the best way to deliver our service:

  • Accessible – we want our clients to know that we are always here when they need us, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
  • Comprehensive – we offer a broad range of services, from simple outpatient visits to complicated surgeries and technologies including laparoscopy, MRI and CT scans, all performed within Medivet. And these are all linked to our branches via our bespoke computer systems. We’re very much a one-stop shop for all your pet’s health needs.
  • High Quality Care – we’re extremely proud of the standard of care we deliver. Where possible and appropriate, we’ll care for our patients around the clock with dedicated day and night teams of vets and nurses, and with back-up teams on stand-by. We want all patients to have access to experienced and highly trained vets and nurses, as well as the latest technologies.

And we care for our clients, our patients’ owners, by looking after them too! Communication and genuine understanding is extremely important to us. We want our clients to know that we’re just as concerned about their pets as they are.

So, how have we tried to achieve our mission?

For accessibility and comprehensive care, we created our unique hub-and-spoke system more than 20 years ago. We have several RCVS-accredited veterinary hospitals open 24 hours a day, each of which serves about 10 to 15 satellite clinics. This enables us to get the maximum benefit from our technology, skills and experience.

In order to achieve and maintain our high standards of care, we have intensive, ongoing training programs for our staff. These include detailed inductions, a comprehensive Buddy System, residency program for less experienced colleagues, practice visits, and teams dedicated to training and practice development and integration. Area managers and partners oversee this process. We have over 70 branch partners and 14 senior partners, all veterinary surgeons, who encourage a culture of caring for our patients and our clients.

We also aspire at all times to our Core Values:

  • Progressive

  • Caring

  • Trustworthy

  • Exceptional 

And finally, who is our target market?

The caring, discerning pet owner. This is the client who loves their pet, sees it as an integral member of the family, and wants to do the best they can for it. Clients who are as passionate about their pets as we are!
