West Midlands Referrals has recently joined the Linnaeus group.
We’ve done this because it has become increasingly hard for independent referral practices to operate within the veterinary marketplace, where the ownership of general rules is ever-more dominated by corporate ownership.
We chose Linnaeus as our “big brother in the playground” because that makes us part of the Mars group. Mars are an enormous operation with huge resources. They are a family-owned business that takes a long term view – they don’t just look years ahead, they look decades ahead, and they proudly boast of never having sold one of their businesses! They don’t sell them; they invest in them.
We are pleased to have secured West Midlands Refferal’s future as part of the Linnaeus and Mars Group.
