James Parton BVSc MRCVS, Teme Veterinary Practice LLP
“We used Shire Insurance to acquire funding for an independent takeover of our small animal veterinary practice. Graham was fantastic and went above and beyond the call of duty to secure us a great deal as well as providing much needed advice and gentle guidance to navigate us through unfamiliar waters. Highly recommend to anyone in a similar position.”
Ian Jobson BVM&S MRCVS - Rochford Veterinary Ltd, Rochford
“My grateful thanks for your own input Graham and help to us in organising this refinance which I suspect has been one of the longer ones undertaken by yourself.”
Tim Harrison - Harrison Family Vets, Reading
“I have dealt with Keith Dickinson for over 20 years in the veterinary industry and I have come to trust his sector knowledge on all things insurance and finance. Not only are he and his staff at the centre of things they are discreet and reliable. I would recommend them to anyone.”
Harriet Baxter MRCVS
“I would definitely recommend Graham’s services. He helped me sort financing for a business acquisition where I was unable to secure high street financing. It was not a straight forward transaction, but Graham was extremely patient and with his help we had a very successful outcome”
Iain Russell MRCVS - The Crossings Veterinary Centre, Norfolk
“I used Graham as my advisor for the finance required to buy out my partner in our veterinary practice.
He was an absolute star. Helpful, professional, diligent and knowledgeable are just a few of the adjectives I would use.
It is fair to say form filling and finding information are not my number one pursuits, but Graham was a master of gentle cajoling to move the process forward. He found me a competitive and suitable finance solution
and was an excellent intermediary with the banks. I had confidence from our first conversation that my aims could be achieved. Highly recommended.”
Dr Annie Davis BVMS MRCVS - THE GEORGE VETERINARY GROUP
“Graham Scott’s involvement was critical in progressing the share purchase I made. Given the lack of flexibility from my own bank and limited advice from non-specialist advisors it was a relief to be dealing with a company who fully understood the business I was in, took time to understand my own requirements and then did a really efficient job in finding the loan arrangement which was a near perfect fit. At every stage I felt informed and supported, appreciating the thoughtful and professional way the task was undertaken and successfully completed.”
John Bower MRCVS MBE
“Keith Dickinson has supported the veterinary profession for many years and I would wholeheartedly recommend him and his team for anything concerning finance and insurance.”
Simon Wilson BVSC MRCVS – Cain Vets
“The help I received from Graham and Keith was most useful in enabling me to finance my purchase despite a complicated lending environment. They made themselves available to negotiate problems as they arose and their depth of knowledge was a great reassurance.”
Gary Kelly BVM&S MRCVS – Warren House Veterinary Centre Ltd.
“Our practice just recently had to find finance to purchase the shares of an outgoing Director/Shareholder. This was impossible for myself and the remaining Directors in the business to do at the time and we all faced a very difficult dilemma. Fortunately, we contacted Keith Dickinson at Shire who, along with his incredibly helpful staff, guided us to a solution. He looked at our Business and the problem that was before us in great detail. After considering the options he introduced us to the right people and guided us to a solution that benefitted both our business and the outgoing Director. Almost a year on I can’t thank Keith, the staff at Shire enough for the excellent service and expertise they provided our business. I would happily recommend them to anyone.”
