We have used NWL for many years now and are always impressed by their rapid turnaround, approachability and advice. The whole process from sample pickup to result reporting is very efficient and makes life so much easier for us in general practice.

Andrew Price, Tweed House Veterinary Surgery

Since working at Sandbeck I have been incredibly impressed with your lab – I’d go as far as to say it is the best service I have experienced in all my time in practice!

Julian Norton, The Yorkshire Vet at Sandbeck Vets
