The Move To Ashington

Dear Client,

The Arundel Equine Hospital – New Hospital

We are pleased and excited to announce that the completion date of our brand new, purpose built, state-of-the-art equine hospital is imminent, and that we will be relocating to the new premises over the weekend of 22nd – 23rd July 2017. During this time, we will still be operating our normal weekend out of hours emergency service. On Monday 24th July, we will be running a full complement of hospital and ambulatory vets. If you need to book an appointment or speak to a vet please call the normal practice number (01903 883050) where your call will be answered and directed to the vet covering your area. Reception and Accounts will return to a normal service on Tuesday 25th July.

The Arundel Equine Hospital was founded in 1951 by Mike Ashton and since that time has undergone numerous changes, but the core aim of providing outstanding care to all horses, ponies and donkeys, has not and will not change. The new premises will enable us to expand on the range of services we are able to offer. For patients that do need to come into the new hospital, the new site provides a state-of-the-art, custom built facility to ensure the best possible treatment and care for all. We will be able to offer standing MRI from August 2017 and CT scanning from early 2018.

Our new location is more centralised within the area we cover, with good access just off the A24. The move to Ashington will not impact on the level of service that you currently experience, but will improve our coverage across the South. Vets will still attend yards as they do now, and our van will still be buzzing around with all the digital diagnostic equipment such as x-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy.

With effect from Saturday 1st July 2017, we will be changing our name to the Sussex Equine Hospital. This is designed to reflect our new location, but rest assured that all vets and staff will stay the same, and that we will retain the same friendly, helpful approach, understanding your horse’s needs.
Below is an information sheet, highlighting the new facilities, including the new logo and address of the new hospital. We are retaining our existing telephone numbers, so no need to update your phone book or speed dial, and our bank account details will remain the same too.

Finally, we thank you for your support, and if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us by either calling Reception on 01903 883050 or emailing

Kind regards,
Ed, Rob, Paula, Matt, Simon & Andy
