Surrey-based Fitzpatrick Referrals has launched a new scheme whereby referring practices can send one client for free treatment for every 15 paid cases they refer.

The scheme will allow regular referrers to gift free treatment worth up to £5000 to clients in need of financial assistance

Hospital Director Nicola Bromley said: “We recognise the challenge it is for families who may need specialist care for their animal friend but are unable to find the necessary funds.

"We highly value the relationship we have with our referring vets in providing options to their clients, and we hope this scheme will empower them to give hope to those who need it most.

"We are committed to supporting our referring primary care vets through collaboration, to make the whole sector as good as it can be for every animal.”

The new scheme will be activated immediately and apply to referrals made from January 2024, meaning practices and primary care vets who already refer to Fitzpatrick Referrals can refer pro bono cases immediately.
