As if last Sunday's launch into the world of broadsheet journalism wasn't enough (did I mention that I'm now writing a weekly question and answer column in the Home section of the Sunday Times - oh yes I did, sorry), Wednesday was another BIG EVENT.
It saw the launch, at the Institute of Physics in London, of a ground-breaking collaboration between the Hyde Park Veterinary Centre and Davies Veterinary Specialists in Hertfordshire.
Davies has long been at the forefront of veterinary medicine in the UK, with a huge team of specialist vets and nurses all working from a large and very well-equipped facility near Hitchin. It is one of the largest private referral veterinary centres in Europe.
They have now teamed up with us at Hyde Park to provide specialist consultations every day of the week from our premises conveniently situated as we are, right in the heart of London.
No longer a long and complicated journey out into the wilds at a time of stress and worry - you can see their top clinicians at your convenience, at our clinic.
Needless to say, we are bursting with pride that such a prestigious veterinary institution has chosen us as their partner, and particularly as it is the very first time that a referral centre of this callibre has established a base in central London, specifically to serve the pets of London.
For more information, go to Davies London. The new clinical service starts on Monday 27th February 2012.
