Scone Veterinary Hospital yesterday exchanged contracts for relocation to "the hub of equine services at Racecourse Road, Scone". This development facilitates "the immediate relocation of key equine services to state-of-the-art facilities at the Hunter Valley Equine Research Centre, as stage one of an exciting period of growth for SVH & the region". The contracts signed yesterday facilitated: a 5-year lease of 3 buildings in the existing HVERC (including laboratory, post-mortem facility & accommodation) & the option to lease the remainder of the research facilities on completion of the new hospital; purchase of 10 acres of land adjacent to the HVERC to accommodate "a new world-class veterinary hospital". SVH "will relocate its laboratory services to the Research Centre immediately & hopes to move into the new hospital within the next 3-4 years".
