The Fitzpatrick Referrals Oncology and Soft Tissue team will be celebrating its first anniversary on September 2 2016. Over 1,000 patients have already benefitted from their animal hospital’s state of the art services.
It’s been over a year since founder and managing director Professor Noel Fitzpatrick put together a team of internationally renowned experts in oncology, soft tissue and nursing. Under the guidance of clinical director Professor Nick Bacon, they have been working at the forefront of cancer treatment and care for small animals at the new hospital in Guildford on Surrey Research Park.
Nick said: “Our original aim was, and remains for the hospital to become the most advanced veterinary cancer centre in Europe offering all options to all patients at all times.”
Dr. Laurent Findji, soft tissue specialist added: “This new hospital was a blank canvas which left us free to implement the systems known to work and rethink those known not to. Today, our team has more than doubled in size but the energy is unchanged.”
The last 12 months have also seen the launch of the Fitzpatrick Learning Academy Skills Lab. It furthers the team’s aim to create a learning centre to teach, share and advance veterinary surgery and medicine.
