A new state-of-the-art referral and emergency hospital is helping sick and injured animals in north-east England.

The new Wear Referrals hospital in County Durham is state-of-the-art

The premises, in County Durham, allows Wear Referrals to expand its referral services and provide an even better service to referring vets and pet owners.

The company hopes it will become a centre of excellence both clinically and educationally.

Facilities include:

  • a 1.5 tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner (human MRI scanner)
  • a 16-slice computed tomography scanner
  • fluoroscopy
  • a chemotherapy ward
  • a lecture theatre
  • a rehabilitation ward
  • a dedicated intensive care unit


The in-practice laboratory will integrate with the practice computer using software for effective practice management.

A wireless digital microscope camera can transform an existing microscope into a streaming, wireless system, which allows the operator to view, capture and edit live microscopic activity.

The hospital is conveniently situated about 300 yards from junction 60 of the A1, which will allow rapid and easy access for all referred clients and emergencies.
