The final phase of our equine hospital redevelopment is well and truly underway. The steels are up on the extension which will house our CT scanning room and the internal refit of our surgical areas is in progress.
The initial expansion started last year with the completion of a purpose-built stud barn offering specialised mare and foal stabling with a self-contained stallion block, teasing room, lab facilities and semen storage area. This meant we could use existing stabling for the creation of a residential area for the Nottingham University Vet School students who are on rotation with us. It also allowed us to redevelop the first barn into three brand new consult rooms, equine client waiting area, scanning room and x-ray suite complete with a new gantry x-ray which provides better image quality and accessibility.
We hope that Spring 2019 will see the completion of our CT suite, which will be used by both the equine and small animal departments and is a new service that the Partners are very excited to offer.
Thank you to all of our clients for bearing with us through the disruption and inconvenience that the building work has, at times, caused. We are finally seeing the benefits from the updated outpatient facilities and will continue to do so over the next few months.
