Job Description

About Us

Scottish Vet Referrals is a dedicated, independent, referral centre located in the beautiful surroundings of the Inverness Campus in the heart of the Scottish Highlands

We provide acupuncture, cardiorespiratory, CT scanning, dermatology, BVA/KC eye testing, internal medicine and oncology, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery and soft tissue surgery services; delivering dedicated expertise with state of the art specialist equipment in a custom-designed facility.
