With Oakwood Veterinary Referrals as part of the Willows Vet Group we have access to specialist surgeons.

The Willows Veterinary Group has its own Referral Service called Oakwood Veterinary Referrals which is staffed by some of the most highly qualified Veterinary Specialists in the area. These surgeons see difficult cases referred to them not only from our own vets but by vets from all over the North West and beyond.

We have Certificate and Diploma holders in the following disciplines

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Soft Tissue Surgery
  • Internal medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Dermatology

The philosophy behind Oakwood is to maximise the animal’s return to a good quality of life with minimum suffering.

Oakwood Veterinary Referrals are based at a purpose built veterinary hospital in Hartford, Northwich which is approved by both the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the British Veterinary Hospitals Association. We provide nursing care 24 hours a day and have a dedicated night nursing team.
