    Organisational background

    Uplands Way Vets in Norfolk has been a practice for over 100 years. It started as a one-man clinic dealing with large farm animals and the odd farm cat. It is now a small animal and ambulatory equine practice, with a main (modern and well equipped) hospital and one (recently refurbished) branch clinic in Attleborough.
