Eight primary care branches across Essex and London have joined Linnaeus, having previously been run by VetPartners.

The practices comprise Forest Veterinary Centre, which operates three surgeries in Essex; Palmerston Veterinary Group, which has three branches in London; and the Oakhill and Isle of Dogs sites within the Best Friends Vet Group.

Russell Welsh, Business Development Director at Linnaeus, said:

“We are very excited to have such experienced and talented teams join us. We can already see that there are many opportunities for collaboration across the group, and I know they will be warmly welcomed by everyone at Linnaeus.”

Opening in 1984, Forest Veterinary Centre has a 24/7 hour site in Epping and two surgeries in Harlow and Woodford Bridge. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and supports 12 local practices with an out of hours hub.

The Oakhill and Isle of Dogs branches of Best Friends Pet Group are successful and growing primary care surgeries with a highly experienced team.

Set up in 1968, Palmerston Veterinary Group offers the highest standards of treatment at its surgeries in Buckhurst Hill, Hornchurch and Walthamstow.

The eight sites join Linnaeus’s family of primary care practices and referral hospitals across the UK and Ireland.
