We understand that a number of leading Pet Insurance brands have recently re-assessed their terms of business with regards to the use of Specialist Referral Centres. In particular, we understand that clients insured under these brands are being requested to contact the insurer to establish which Referral Centre they should use.
Our strategy at Vetsure has always, and will continue to be, to offer customers choice – in the case of Referral Centres this choice is largely determined as a result of a consultation between the first opinion vet and the customer. At Vetsure, we believe that this choice should be respected.
The Vetsure model does operate on a ‘directional care’ basis in that we have a growing network of Vetsure-accredited first opinion practices across the country. Whilst Vetsure customers do benefit from use of Vetsure-accredited clinics specifically (they save £20 on claims excess payments when using these practices) they also retain complete freedom to use any vet in the UK of their choice. Either way, we trust the practices caring for patients insured by Vetsure to use the Referral Centres that are in the best interests of the patient and customer alike.
If staff at any veterinary practice would like to call us to discuss, then please call us on 01707 226672 or email: [email protected]
Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!

There are so many things that I love about Vetsure which for me sets them apart from other buying groups and insurance companies. Their core values, their ideals of collaboration amongst independent veterinary practices, and most importantly their trustworthiness all lend to an incredible personable business model.

The Vetsure approach demonstrates a clear understanding of modern veterinary practice from both a business and clinical perspective… I believe that this model will shape the future of pet insurance in the UK.
