Cardiology

Dr Mark Patteson (MA, VetMB, PHD, DVC, Cert VR. MRCVS) is an RCVS specialist in veterinary cardiology.
He comes to our practice every 3 weeks  to see Cardiology and Imaging cases referred from practices in Cornwall and South Devon.

As the medical management of all forms of heart disease improves and expands, Mark is often able to extend good quality life periods for his cardiac patients.

His imaging and diagnostics skills with ultrasonography, echocardiography and halter monitoring particularly help him to give clients the clearest possible information on their pet.

Appointments with Mark can be made by phone, email or fax directly via HeartVets.

Ophthalmology

Jim Carter (BVetMed DVOphthal MRCVS) is the leading Veterinary Ophthalmologist in the South West, having studied veterinary ophthalmology to the highest level (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Certificate and Diploma).

He visits Penmellyn fortnightly, bringing advanced diagnostic equipment and expertise with him.
He is also a member of the BVA/KC eye scoring panel, qualified to scrutinise and certificate pedigree animals for breeding under the scheme aimed to reduce incidence of genetic disease.

A referral practice operates as a partnership with all of its referring practices. We take that relationship seriously, and if there is any support you need from us, we aim to provide it ourselves or assist you until you get it from case referral to equipment sourcing, from technique advice to case discussion.

Surgery

A30 Referrals is the small animal referral division of Penmellyn Vet Group. It was launched with the arrival of Colin Whiting (BVSc CertSAS MRCVS) in 2007, seeing orthopaedic, spinal and soft tissue surgical cases referred from practices in Cornwall and South Devon.

A30 referrals has a firm ethos of providing local expertise and support to local practices. All cases are discussed without obligation, including happily providing tips on how to repair fractures in your own practice.

For Referring Vets

Referring a Case

At A30 Referrals, we aim to make the referral process as simple as possible for referring vets, clients and patients.

We know that all clinicians are busy in practice, so we have a faxable referral form for vet, clients and patients details and a brief summary of presenting problem, to be accompanied by relevant clinical notes - a full referral letter is not necessary.

Cases are also accepted via e-mail and by phone. We ask that any urgent cases are referred by phone call, so we can make urgent emergency admission preparations in the clinical team and adjust our theatre list accordingly.
