In 2013, White Cross Vets achieved 48th place in the Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For list. In 2014, we moved up to the 45th best place to work for, becoming the only UK veterinary practice to achieve the maximum 3 star Best Companies.

Throughout 2015 we provided quality care for more than 1,500 pets every week whilst we continued to be the best employer for vets and nurses in the UK – a fact that was confirmed when we made the top 20 in the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to work for list. We continued to expand our services by opening our 14th vets in St Helens in May.

In 2016 we tripled the size of our vets in Derby, the practice now boasts two operating theatres, the latest diagnostic equipment and space for over 25 inpatients, six days a week – take a virtual tour of the best vets in Derby. In March we achieved a double milestone welcoming our 150th team member into the White Cross family and being named in the Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For list for the fourth year in a row. A busy twelve months was completed with the opening of two more purpose-built practices caring for the cats, dogs and rabbits of Widnes  and Wolverhampton.

2017 began with the arrival of two prestigious awards. The inaugural SPVS Wellbeing Award recognised our philosophy for supporting our team members physical and mental wellbeing, and for a record fifth year in a row, we were named in the Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For list.  In September we achieved two more milestones with our 200th team member and the opening of our 17th veterinary practice in Eccleshill, Bradford.

At the beginning of 2018 we opened purpose built veterinary practices in Newton, Hyde near Manchester and Handsworth, Sheffield with our 20th site scheduled for the end of the year.
