Dick White Referrals is a centre of veterinary excellence based in Six Mile Bottom, near Cambridge. It is a referral only centre, which means that all patients are referred by first opinion veterinary surgeons.
The centre provides a comprehensive service across a wide range of disciplines including Soft Tissue Surgery, Orthopaedics, Internal Medicine, Diagnostic Imaging, Neurology/Neurosurgery, Oncology, Dermatology, Anaesthesia, Ophthalmology and Clinical Pathology.
In addition to clinical services, they also run a very active training programme for vets, undergraduate students, physiotherapists, nurses and pet owners/breeders. Their charity, the Dick White Charitable Foundation is supporting a veterinary project in Cuba, which cares for street dogs and cats in Havana.
The centre’s operating facilities have just been expanded, with two new theatres bringing the total to five. Dortek were happy to supply and install specialist hygienic door systems for the new theatres.
“Infection control is of critical importance in our premises and, therefore, specifying the correct doors for our new operating theatres was crucial. We are impressed with the high quality and clean appearance of Dortek’s hygienic doors which are particularly suited to sterile areas. Their installation team were very professional, helpful and knowledgeable and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others in the industry,” said Dick White.
Dortek manufactured specialist hygienic hinged doors with stainless steel frames for the practice. Our seamless doors are completely void free, easy to clean and do not harbour bacteria making them ideal for veterinary facilities.
Dortek have recently installed ultra hygienic doors at an exciting new world class veterinary hospital in Surrey. The £40 million hospital, specialising in oncology treatments, is for specialist veterinary referral practice Fitzpatrick Referrals, which features in The Supervet series on Channel 4.
The school will be located at the heart of the University of Surrey’s manor park site in Guildford. It is one of only eight centres in the country and will give veterinary student’s hands-on experience with animal health and links to veterinary practices in the area.
The school will comprise three buildings including a main academic centre with offices, teaching spaces, lecture theatres and research laboratories, a veterinary pathology building and a clinical skills centre with an animal examination area and animal simulators.
The school will also benefit human health as it will work closely with the charity that Mr. Fitzpatrick has founded called The Humanimal Trust. The charity aims to progress both human and animal health care simultaneously, sharing knowledge and resources and promoting the concept of One Medicine. To help raise funds and awareness of the charity a member of the Dortek team will be taking a leap of faith and doing a skydive from 12,000 ft in September.
Dortek manufactured specialist hygienic hinged doors with stainless steel frames for the facility. Fire rated and lead lined doors were also supplied across clinical areas and x-ray rooms. Our seamless doors are completely void free, easy to clean and do not harbour bacteria making them ideal for veterinary research facilities. The buildings are due for completion in autumn this year.
