NatWest and Lombard have provided a newly-established veterinary clinic in Cambridgeshire with a funding package to set up its activities.
East of England Veterinary Specialists, which launched in April, used the finance for the refurbishment of its site of operations, from a purpose-built human hospital to a veterinary practice.
Lombard supported the fitting of the clinic’s imaging suite by financing a piece of digital radiology equipment, an NMI Saturn 8000, distributed by Jet Xray. Leasing Life understands the cost of the machine was in the order of £36,000.
Funding for the clinic was coordinated by Karl Simper and Mat Parkhouse, both relationship managers at Natwest, and Allen Brunton, senior relationship manager at Lombard.
Owners Martin Owen and Mark Bush said they hope to further expand the business in the future.
Owen said: “We have enjoyed welcoming our first customers over the past month and look forward to continuing to establish ourselves as an expert orthopaedic veterinary clinic.”
Parkhouse said: “Both Martin and Mark are highly qualified and passionate about what they do. With the funding we have provided, they are now able to offer their expertise from a highly specialist clinic, that will in turn benefit local vets and pet owners.”
