New Vet In Bovingdon

2nd of May 2008

Last month there was a debate in the news about replacing single doctor clinics with one-stop health shops run by several GPs – so called ‘polyclinics. Veterinary practice today seems to be headed in the same direction, with our own equivalent of ‘polyclinics springing up all over the country. Its easy to understand why going to one place for all your health needs is appealing, but at the same time, is there a risk that these ‘polyclinics will lose the personal factor?
Sorry, theres me chattering on and I havent introduced myself. For those of you whom I havent had the pleasure of meeting – I am Stephanie, your new local vet. We are building a fabulous new clinic not far from you, on Shantock Hall Lane between Bovingdon and Flaunden. But more about Hope Vets in a moment.
My greatest professional satisfaction has always come from getting to know my patients and their owners over time and working through problems together with them – from beginning to the end of their treatment. Really thats where Hope Vets came from. It all started as a pipe dream and now we are charging forward into reality. Its a bit of a family affair with me being the vet, my husband Steven dealing with the boring paperwork and our good friend Barbie: UK Vet Nurse of the Year 2007 (not to brag or anything) being our nurse. The clinic has been designed from scratch and the digging has just begun, so fingers crossed we will open in October, at which point will be able to offer full surgical and diagnostic facilities alongside our expertise, smiles and easy car parking.
As some of you already know, I couldnt wait to get started, so at present Hope Vets is open in another guise. Until the clinic opens later in the year we are running a mobile veterinary service. We can treat your pets in the comfort of your own home and save them the stress of the dreaded trip to the vet. So if your pets have any problems, are due for vaccinations or if you just need some advice, please feel free to give us a call.
Heres hoping the days of the small friendly GP veterinary practice being part of the community and serving the village are not over. We are really looking forward to getting to know you all.
