We recognise that there are many different reasons to refer a case and we are always happy to discuss a case with you prior to committing to a referral.

If you wish to refer an emergency or urgent case during office hours please call the hospital office on 01428 727200 or out of hours please call 01428 727727.

For non urgent referrals please call the hospital office on 01428 727200. Alternatively you may submit a referral form and one of our receptionists will call you back within 1 working day to discuss your requirements. Generally, for non-urgent appointments, we will contact the owners directly to arrange the appointment details.

In order to provide optimal care to the referred horse we request that referring veterinarians should provide us with a full case history for any case they are referring, including the results of any diagnostic procedures they have already undertaken and any treatment or medication that the horse has received.

What our clients say


I have been using LEH as a referral hospital for 15 years. Over this time, they’ve treated our horses for everything from wounds to allergies and performed lameness investigations through to major surgeries. On every occasion their diagnosis, treatment and service has been second to none. What really makes LEH stand out from the crowd is that on top of first rate medical care, their communication at all stages is excellent.
