Lumbry Park Veterinary Specialists is one of the largest and most advanced veterinary specialist referral centres in the UK.

At Lumbry Park we offer a broad range of specialist veterinary referral services. Our vets, nurses and administrative staff are here to work with general veterinary practitioners to provide the highest quality diagnostic and treatment options in the South of England. We only see cases that are referred by primary care veterinary surgeons.

We offer referrals in the fields of canine medicine, cardiology, feline medicine, general surgery, neurology and orthopaedics. These services are supported by referral clinicians in anaesthesia and radiology (including MRI and CT scanning).

What is a Veterinary Specialist

What is a Veterinary Specialist

Recognised specialist veterinary surgeons must undergo extensive postgraduate training and pass rigorous examinations before they can become specialists. Veterinary specialists work in much the same way as specialists or consultants in human medicine and only accept cases that are referred to them by general practitioners.

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is the regulator for vets in the UK and maintains a register of specialist vets. RCVS specialist status must be re-accredited every five years and is not easily achieved.
