Equipped with advanced digital x-ray, ultrasound, and CT, 3 operating theatres, large prep area, separate ward/kennel areas and full inhouse lab.  They currently offer complex soft tissue and orthopaedic services including TECA, BOAS, TPLO, CCWO, fracture repairs and spinal surgery.

Based just north of Manchester you will benefit from all the culture, history, food and entertainment the city has to offer with easy access right to the centre in under 30 minutes by car or train.  At the practice itself there is ample parking for those who drive and easy access to great train and bus services within minutes walking of the hospital door, making commuting to and from work a breeze.
