CardioCare Referrals

Expert in-house referral cardiology that’s flexible, convenient and collaborative

The CardioCare service exists to bridge the gap between general practice and Diploma-level referral care, working with selected veterinary practices in and around the New Forest to provide a wide range of cardiology referral, ultrasound and CPD services.

We believe that every cardiology referral can be a learning opportunity for the referring practice team. We’re really proud of our unique ‘Refer and learn’ approach, combining convenient cardiology referral with a relaxed and informal opportunity to improve your own cardiology knowledge and skills. We support and encourage you to follow all the case investigation and work-up process as it takes place in your own practice.

Your patients and clients get rapid access to gold-standard cardiology referral care in familiar and convenient surroundings, whilst your team receive tailored coaching through every aspect of the diagnostic and treatment pathway.

Watch and learn in real time, for truly collaborative cardiology.

I have had the pleasure of working with Ian for several years. Our team would refer to him as the Oracle of cardiology! Ian is a fantastic communicator, passionate about sharing his knowledge and thrives on building his colleagues confidence in all areas of cardiology.

I’ve been fortunate to attend many of Ian’s CPD events, especially on ECGs (often every nurses nightmare!). Ian has a unique ability to break down & simplify ECG’s in way that I had never experienced before. Ian is an engaging, enthusiastic speaker who always handles questions with sensitivity & positivity.
