Cracked front drop out

After months of trying to work out what was causing my mysterious bike noise I have finally found the reason - a cracked front drop out. It is only a tiny crack at the moment and the noise goes away temporarily if I grease it, but I would be very grateful if anyone could tell me what my options are. Can I get the front drop out replaced, and can a regular LBS do this, or do I need to go somewhere special? If so, any suggestions in London?

I'm riding a Cannondale R900 with CAAD5 frame and Campagnola forks (I think).

Not too confident about this at the moment, so any good news before I get to my LBS would be great.
