About Us

Swayne and Partners established in the 1970s have grown into a multi-site practice offering exceptional standards of care to our patients. We have our own 24/7 staffed site situated less than 20 miles from each of our branches which can provide intensive care to those patients requiring hospitalisation. We pride ourselves on providing a personal, traditional service with the benefit of modern techniques and technology.

With over 20 Vets across the group, we have a huge range of experience to tap into with multiple certificate holders across the group and each branch has its own experienced and supportive nursing teams.

The Newmarket team comprises 3 FTE Veterinary Surgeons who are supported by a team of Registered Veterinary Nurses, Student Veterinary Nurses, Nursing Assistants, and receptionists.
