How to Find Us

Our Ilford practice can be found right on the outskirts of Ilford Town Centre, in the London Borough of Southwark. The practice had been operating for many years until it became part of the Goddard Veterinary Group in 1990. 

Parking and Accessibility 

If you are visiting our Ilford practice via car, parking is available in the multi-story car opposite us. We will reimburse the cost of this for 1-hour. Alternatively, Ilford Train Station is just a short 10-minute walk from the practice. Bus No.169 also stops very close to us. 

What to do in the event of an Emergency 

In the event of an emergency, or if your pet is unwell outside the practice hours, then we have an emergency vet hospital that can provide urgent assistance. Our veterinary hospitals are open 365 of a year, 24 hours a day. The closest hospital to our Ilford practice is the Wanstead Veterinary Hospital. They can be contacted on 020 8989 7744. For your peace of mind, and continuity of care, your pet’s medical history is accessible from all of our branches, at any time. 

Highest Standards of Veterinary Care 

Our Ilford practice is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). Following a diligent assessment, the RCVS is satisfied that we maintain the highest standards of veterinary care.  

In light of our work in reducing the stress cats experience when attending veterinary practices, we have been awarded the internationally recognised Cat-Friendly Clinic status.
