Langford Vets Equine Referral Hospital suspended referral services on 24th April 2020.
Since the suspension of referral services at the Equine Hospital, there has been a substantial effort in modelling the patient care, financial viability and teaching effectiveness of a number of options for the Equine Referral Hospital.
As a result of this evaluation process, a management proposal has been made to permanently close the facility and members of the Langford Vets Equine Referral Hospital team have entered into a formal consultation period as of 22nd July 2020.
This consultation process does not affect the Stables Equine Practice or other areas of Langford Vets which have felt significantly less impact from Covid 19 and the effects of lockdown.
The circumstances of Covid 19 has forced some very difficult considerations. Our Equine Hospital Team work extremely hard delivering the outstanding equine veterinary care and an excellent teaching experience of which Langford Vets is proud.
Unfortunately, this area of the business is facing a set of circumstances that could not have been predicted. Even with prudent management, these effects cannot be mitigated without significant change.
Further update will follow as soon as possible.
