News Article: We join the Linnaeus group

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 market place, where the ownership of general practices is ever-more dominated by corporate ownership.

We chose Linnaeus to be our “big brother in the play ground” because that makes us part of the Mars group. Mars are an enormous operation with huge resources, and 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 have the proud boast of never having sold one of their businesses! They don’t sell them, they invest in them.

We are pleased to have secured WMR’s future as part of the Linnaeus and Mars Group.
