Take a look inside Aldgate’s new hospital for small animals

A multi-million-pound small animal hospital which will enhance veterinary services in East Yorkshire opened earlier this month.

The investment has been made by independently owned Aldgate Veterinary Practice, which currently has practices on St John’s Place in Driffield and Wellington Road in Bridlington.

Located on Hilderthorpe Road in Bridlington, it will offer 24/7 emergency services, previously not available locally, veterinary-led rehabilitation and hydrotherapy, as well as the full range of core services.

All will be delivered from a purpose-built hospital, fitted out with the highest standards of equipment, including CT scanner, pool with treadmill and ultrasound, X-ray and endoscopy facilities.

The animal hospital opened to the public on 7th November and is the biggest investment in the 90-year history of Aldgate Vets.

As well as forming part of the prominent regeneration corridor in Hilderthorpe Road, the facility is set to bring dozens of new jobs to the area in roles including vets, nurses and admin staff.

“This will be a truly outstanding facility for the area and we can’t wait to share it with our existing customers and newcomers to Aldgate Vets,” said Giles Moore, director and vet at Aldgate Vets.

“We are very proud of our approach to animal care and we look forward to being able to offer our outstanding services to more people in the communities which are home to everyone in our team.”

The construction phase of the small animal hospital started in August 2021, led by Hull-based main contractor Houlton, with the fit-out completed by Simpsons of York.

The hospital has five consulting rooms, separate dog and cat waiting areas and a wealth of modern veterinary technology.

Facilities include a CT scanner, an ultrasound and endoscopy room, X-ray room, dental theatre and three surgical theatres, including one for orthopaedic work.

A hydrotherapy pool and treadmill will allow Aldgate Vets to grow their rehabilitation and pain management services, including acupuncture and laser therapy, which are becoming popular as part of an holistic treatment package.

The hospital will also have a meeting room, staff room, directors’ office and 37 car parking spaces.

Accommodation will mean staff will be on-site 24/7. For more information, call Aldgate Vets’ existing Bridlington practice on 01262 677269 or visit www.aldgatevet.co.uk.
