Hamilton Specialist Referrals, High Wycombe, are pleased to announce the launch of a new cardiology service. The weekly service, run by European and RCVS recognised specialist in Veterinary Cardiology, Andrew Francis, will begin seeing routine cardiology referrals from mid-July. The service runs alongside the orthopaedic and neurology services, which are open daily for referral of cases for both routine procedures and emergencies.
The cardiology service will provide referring veterinary practices the opportunity to refer dogs and cats for routine echocardiography, ECG analysis and full cardiac work-up. In addition, orthopaedic and neurological cases referred with a pre-existing murmur, arrhythmia or cardiac condition will be able to benefit from screening at the centre.
Andrew was awarded the ECVIM-CA diploma in Small Animal Cardiology in 2013 and brings with him a wealth of experience from both referral practice and the pharmaceutical industry. Andrew said, “I am delighted to be joining the expanding team at Hamilton Specialist Referrals. The desire for the team to provide patients, clients and staff with the best experience possible is close to my heart and I’m looking forward to being a part of that journey.”
Director, orthopaedic surgery specialist Michael Hamilton, said, “We’re excited to welcome Andrew to the team. His expertise and experience will be invaluable for providing a comprehensive cardiology service, not only to our referring practices, but also for our existing caseload where a cardiac problem is suspected.”
