Westpoint Veterinary Group and Eville & Jones have joined forces to bid for appointment to the AHVLA’s veterinary delivery partnership programme.

The new company is called Xperior Farm Health. Eville & Jones is an experienced service provider in inspection and testing services in the fields of animal health, public health and animal welfare.

The company employs more than 450 veterinary staff nationwide and already provides fully managed Official Veterinarian (OV) services to UK Competent Authorities.

Westpoint Veterinary Group is a specialist, farm-animal-only practice, operating from 17 sites countrywide to provide farmers with specialist and locally based services. It is the largest veterinary group in the UK specialising in production animals, employing more than 50 veterinary surgeons.

According to veterinary director Phil Elkins, the resources and experience of the two parent companies make Xperior Farm Health well equipped to fulfil a Delivery Partner service expected by AHVLA.

“Our ambition is to provide an exemplary standard of accurate and trustworthy on-farm animal health testing services where possible, using subcontracted practices,” says Mr Elkins. “If appointed, of course, these will be farmer friendly, provide an ongoing source of work and revenue to subcontractor OVs, and represent excellent value for money to the taxpayer.”
