APHA offers post mortem examinations (PMEs) and diagnostic testing, as well as advice and support, to veterinary surgeons in practice to diagnose, control and prevent disease in farm animals.

The PME service in England and Wales is delivered through our six Veterinary Investigation Centres and several partner providers.

This is part of a wider science network, which includes APHA’s specialist avian centre at Lasswade in Scotland and further research and diagnostic facilities at Newcastle, Sand Hutton (York) and Weybridge in Surrey.

To find your nearest post mortem centre, you can also use the postcode search tool. Please note this should be the postcode of the farm from where the animal is to be submitted and not the practice. Click on the site name on the map below to see contact details.

Some livestock owners are entitled to free carcase collection.
