About Us

Clinical experience and knowledge

The only RCVS accredited three tier hospital in Ipswich

Born out of tradition and grown through a reputation for care and service, Orwell Vet Group is a long established, family run vet practice offering a full range of first opinion veterinary care for dogs, cats, rabbits and family pets. Brothers, Charles and James Bagnall had close ties with the practice during their education, both at School and then University. They became partners in 1994 and now have over 40 years experience between them working at Orwell Vet Group. They are the only vet practice in Ipswich to have achieved Tier Three Hospital status at the purpose built Grange Farm Vet Hospital and have three other branch surgeries in Ipswich town centre, Ravenswood and Stutton. Charles and James take great pride in serving the community in which they grew up and are assisted by a great team of vets, registered nurses and receptionists. Many of the staff are local residents themselves and have been at Orwell Vet Group for many years collectively, creating a very well trained and stable team.

Brothers Charles and James Bagnall have built Orwell Vet Group into a multi branch, multi award winning vet practice from its early days as a small vet practice in Ipswich. Both Charles and James grew up in the Suffolk countryside and went to school in Ipswich. Sharing a passion for animals they, both chose the same career path and jumped at the chance to work together in their home town. Over the last 20 years, Charles and James have developed the practice in terms of facilities, services and staff. 

In July 2016, Orwell Vet Group joined Independent Vetcare - a large cooperative of independent vet practices throughout the UK. The Veterinary profession has evolved considerably in recent years and the support of a large organisation will enable Orwell Vet Group to remain at the forefront of the profession.
