We would like to welcome back Holly Claridge who rejoins us as a member of the road vet team.

Some  of you may recognise Holly as she recently completed an 18 month internship as one of our house vets working on a wide variety of cases within the Hospital. Holly graduated from the RVC and spent the next 3 years in a mixed practice in Norfolk. She joined the Liphook Equine Hospital as a housevet in 2012 and we are delighted that she will now be adding to our road vet team. In her spare time Holly can often be found riding her horses or walking her dog Benson.

We are delighted to welcome Russell Parker BVSc. MSc. DipECVS MRCVS as the fifth member of our surgical team.

Russell is a European Specialist in Equine Surgery and his appointment increases the number of European Specialist surgeons in the hospital to five giving us even greater capacity to deal with lameness investigations, surgical cases and diagnostic imaging. Russell graduated from the University of Bristol in 2004 and initially worked in equine practice before starting a residency in equine surgery at the University of Edinburgh in 2008. In 2012 he became a diplomat of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons and stayed on at Edinburgh as a Lecturer in Equine Surgery. Prior to joining the LEH Russell was working as an equine surgeon in a Berkshire based equine practice. His professional interests include all aspects of equine surgery, lameness investigation and diagnostic imaging. Russell is married and has a young daughter who is already taking a keen interest in the family dogs and horses. Outside of work he enjoys riding, outdoor sports and cooking when time allows.
