New veterinary clinic hopes to be the best in the South West
Press release issued: 10 March 2009
A new veterinary clinic, including the original clinical services and the diagnostic laboratories of the University of Bristol's Vet School, was launched last week [March 1].
The company, Langford Veterinary Services (LVS), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the University of Bristol, has two main aims - firstly to provide excellent care for the animals in their care as well as through excellent customer service and secondly to provide caseloads in all species to support veterinary student teaching.
Lynne Hill, Chief Executive, commenting on the new company, said: "No other UK university has put all of its facilities into a subsidiary company like this.
"A new hospital, surgery and diagnostic imaging centre are currently being planned, with facilities including an MRI scanner and a CT scanner. I hope that LVS will become THE referral centre of the South West."
The range of veterinary clinics includes first opinion small animal and equine practices, referral services for equine, small animals and exotics, a farm animal practice and diagnostic laboratories. These clinics are supported by highly specialised clinicians, diagnostic imagers, anaesthetists, nurses and other support staff.
