Well, following on from our last blog we are all in and settling down to life at the new hospital. Desks have been unpacked and organised, the drug cupboard is stocked and locked, the theatre has been christened with our first surgeries (sarcoid removals and castrations), the stocks in the new examination rooms have been in use for x-rays, dentals and standing surgeries and the stables have been filled and emptied and cleaned as the donkeys have come and gone.
It has been a big change moving over and although there are still a few items on the ‘snagging list’ everyone has pulled together to ensure we are all up and running and our patients have not been compromised in the meantime.
It was a great effort from many departments and so last week we had a hospital bake off to thank the main departments assisting us in the move, namely maintenance, property services and IT.
Our very own vet Alex surpassed all efforts and gained the star baker rosette for her depiction of the hospital busy at work – I’m sure you will all agree from the photo that the award was well deserved!
Thanks again should go to all those who donated to this incredible building and the work that we are able to do here.
