Dick White Referrals appoints Simon Tappin

Dick White Referrals has appointed Simon Tappin as its new clinical director

Renowned Cambridgeshire referral centre Dick White Referrals (DWR) has appointed European and RCVS internal medicine specialist Simon Tappin as its new clinical director.

Simon, who has worked at Linnaeus-owned DWR for 15 years, graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2002 before completing his residency in small animal medicine and intensive care at the University of Bristol. He gained his European diploma at Bristol before moving to DWR in October 2007, where he has since been widely published and lectures at home and abroad on infectious disease, acute medicine and interventional radiology.

Simon is also a veterinary advisor to the Pet Blood Bank charity and was awarded fellowship of the RCVS through meritorious contribution to clinical practice in 2018.

“It’s a huge privilege for me to take up the position of clinical director at Dick White Referrals, having worked here and helped the practice grow over the last 15 years,” said Simon. “DWR is proud to be at the forefront of veterinary medicine and to offer a truly multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. We have an amazingly passionate and committed team who offer the very best to all of our patients every day.

“I’m really looking forward to leading the move into our new building, which offers state-of-the-art facilities for pets, owners and the team.”

Simon Tappin said one of his ambitions as clinical director was to foster DWR’s residency and intern programmes to be “the very best place to come and learn from some of the most talented vets and nurses in the profession”.

“We have very successful and well-established rotating internship and residency programmes in many areas and this year we add emergency and critical care to that list,” he added.

Outside of work, Simon enjoys walking his Labrador, attempting DIY and watching Formula One.

Dick White Referrals offers specialist-led care in anaesthesia and analgesia, cardiology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, diagnostic pathology, emergency and critical care, internal medicine, interventional radiology, neurology and neurosurgery, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, physiotherapy and soft tissue surgery.
