    Phone the vets and ask about their avian qualified vet, his/her qualifications etc AND then google the heck out of that info. You have several options according to parrots mag in Essex. Ask them what species they see most of? More than likely greys tbh, it was with mine, my pink one was something different :)

    https://www.rcvs.org.uk/home/ You may be interested to see the 'want to raise concern about a vet or vet nurse' tab on here. You could just relay what happened to you, say it is a FYI?

    It's so difficult to find a good avian vet. Let me know if you do find one.

    the biggest problem is the few avian qualified vets that are not in a main veterinary practice dealing with birds do move to other practices, its a problem I have had many times.

    Darren I contacted the parrot society and he has updated the list as I contacted a vets they listed to find out they arent avian, so maybe give them email so they can update the list in your area

    Sometimes when a specialist moves practice, the practice they were at can be reluctant to share details of where they have gone.

    You can search for individuals or a practice, and check on their qualifications, make sure they are registered via the RCVS website
