Is my pet eligible for treatment?
Our veterinary services are available to pets whose owners are on certain means-tested benefits or low incomes. You’ll be requested to bring proof of your benefit along with photo ID or a utility bill. People on a low income may also qualify at our discretion and you will need to bring a wage slip or bank statement. Contact us on the above telephone number for more information, to check that you are eligible and to book an appointment.
How many pets can I register?
New clients can register up to two pets at a Blue Cross hospital or clinic. Unfortunately we can’t allow you to register any more than two, even if you have more pets. This is because we want to help as many people and their pets access our veterinary services as we can.
If you give away or sell a pet that’s registered at a Blue Cross hospital or centre, you’ll have to wait six months before you can register a new one in their place. There are times when this rule won’t apply – for example if your pet is put to sleep for medical reasons or we advise you that you shouldn’t keep your pet any longer. If you’re unsure, please speak to your local hospital.
If you already have more than two pets registered with us we’ll continue to treat them but, when you no longer have that pet, you won’t be able to register a new one in their place.
The catchment area for Hammersmith hospital is W4, 6, 8, 11, 12 & 14.
About the hospital
Hammersmith is the smallest of our four hospitals. It underwent major alterations in the 1970s and, more recently, the surgical site was refurbished.
