About Us

Hamilton Specialist Referrals is dedicated to providing clinical excellence in a caring and friendly environment. We believe that our compassion for our patients should extend to our clients and team.

Situated just outside of High Wycombe (J4, M40) Buckinghamshire, Hamilton Specialist Referrals is a purpose built state-of-the-art hospital which provides the latest cutting edge, specialist treatments for orthopaedic and neurological disease in cats and dogs, supported by an exceptional rehabilitation and physiotherapy facility.

We deliver world-class, exemplary clinical services, but with a clear focus on the people that make that a reality. By nurturing our workforce we are able to offer the very best services to the pets entrusted into our care and also to their owners.

Hamilton Specialist Referrals is borne of the belief that there is room for a new wave of veterinary excellence across the UK. There is a strong focus on providing a personal and reassuring client experience from first contact through to discharge. Excellent clinical care, that is second-to-none, delivered in a friendly and supportive manner to referring vets, is paramount to the team.

Our Values

  • Caring Culture

    We truly care about each and every animal. That compassion is evident from the first appointment, right through to the final consultation.

  • Clear Communication

    We make an extra effort to explain all procedures clearly and concisely so our clients feel part of the solution.

  • Clinical Excellence

    To facilitate early and accurate diagnosis we operate sophisticated digital imaging including MRI and CT at our purpose built, state-of-the-art veterinary hospital.

  • Proudly Independent

    We’re proud to be a family-run, independent practice. We’re able to combine traditional values with efficient, modern treatments.

The hospital is operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is able to offer the most advanced treatment options available for orthopaedic, neurosurgical and neurological cases.

Facilities include on-site 1.5T MRI and CT scanner suites, a variety of joint replacement systems, electro diagnostics, and a full complement of the latest radiography and arthroscopy equipment.

Furthermore, the hospital has a dedicated physiotherapy and rehabilitation department, which will include aqua treadmills and computerised gait analysis technology.
