We were one of the first practices in the UK to earn Veterinary Hospital Status

The Palmerston Veterinary Hospital was established in Buckhurst Hill in 1968 and was granted Veterinary Hospital status by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, our governing body back in 1969. We were one of the first practices in the United Kingdom to earn this privilege.

Buckhurst Hill, one of the first veterinary hospitals!

A Veterinary Hospital is a veterinary practice that has been independently inspected to ensure that they match up to the stringent requirements set by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. This is your guarantee that the Palmerston Veterinary Hospital meets the highest standards for veterinary practices in the UK.

The standards cover a wide range of areas, from nursing staff on duty 24 hours each day of the year, to monitoring anaesthetised pets and hygiene, to providing an isolation nursing care area.

Veterinary Surgeons are under no obligation to provide these extensive facilities; Palmerston Veterinary Group has chosen to meet these standards and to face regular inspections every four years.This helps us to maintain the highest standards of care for your pet.

The Walthamstow Veterinary Surgery

In February 2002, we opened the Walthamstow Veterinary Surgery in Walthamstow to serve the needs of our clients in that area.

Situated conveniently at 7 Wyatts Lane, Walthamstow, London E17 (just off Wood Street), the surgery provides a welcome service for local residents and is within walking distance for many.

We can provide many services directly from The Walthamstow Veterinary Surgery, such as routine operations, dental treatment, day patient care, nutritional support, x-ray and weight clinics.

The Romford Veterinary Surgery in Hornchurch

In March 2009 we opened the Romford Veterinary Surgery in Hornchurch. Opening this practice allows us to complete a number of essential services, such as routine operations, dental treatment, day patient care, nutritional support and weight clinics.

Some services such as x-rays, ultrasound and overnight hospitalisation are provided by the hospital; any patients requiring these services can be transported from the Romford Veterinary Surgery.
