Ballinger Equine’s highly regarded clinical team continues to grow with the appointment of Dr Harriett Bartram-Baird BVetMed MRCVS. Harriett grew up in Hertfordshire and qualified as a vet at the Royal Veterinary College, so she knows the area well and is already acquainted with many of Ballinger Equine’s clients and their horses and ponies.
Ballinger Equine’s reputation for excellence attracts talent
Ballinger Equine’s deserved reputation for clinical excellence and outstanding client service means that the practice is able to attract the best talent from around the UK. Harriett has been lured from practice in North Wales to join the Ballinger Equine team. Her special interests are Equine lameness and diagnostic imaging.
Significantly increased investment in diagnostic imaging
As Ballinger Equine’s clinical team continues to grow in size, so the practice has invested significantly in new state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology. This includes the purchase of an additional new mobile digital wireless radiography setup and two new ultrasound scanners both with multiple probes. The entire clinical team is also equipped with motorised equine dental kit and video endoscopy. All the equipment may be carried and supported by the practice’s fleet of all new VW Amarok and Isuzu D-Max 4×4 trucks. An independent practice, investment decisions are streamlined and rapidly implemented by a lean management team, informed primarily by the requirements of the Clinical Director, Dr Susanna Ballinger MRCVS.
Ensuring Ballinger Equine’s out-of-hours emergency resource remains in-house
The continuous development of, and investment in, the clinical team ensures Ballinger Equine continues to operate its own in-house out-of-hours and emergency resource, 24/7, 365. Continuity of care for patients is guaranteed and clients are reassured in that they see the same veterinary surgeon out-of-hours that they will have met during a regular visit on a weekday.
