Giles Summerhays retires from clinical duties!

As many of you may know, at the end of last year Giles Summerhays retired from his immediate clinical duties, after more than 32 years! He is, however, still working with us assisting with medicine management, and still doing Thermography.

Giles joined Liphook Equine Hospital in 1982, alongside John Walmsley and Jeremy Mantell, and became a partner of the hospital in 1985. 

Everyone at Liphook Equine Hospital wishes Giles health and happiness for the future.
