Let’s Get this Show on the Road!

Hello and thank you for subscribing to our blog. Over the coming weeks and months we will be using this blog to share details of what we have going on at The Ralph ahead of our opening later this year.

It has been a journey that started way back in 2014 when I first had the vision for a new independent referral centre that provides high level care to not only our furry companions but also to their human families, Our People who work to make The Ralph the fantastic place that I know it will be, and our referring practices. Now, four years on, I can’t wait to see the vision become a reality when we treat our first patient in a few months’ time.

Soul at the core of our pursuit

The Ralph is very much a passion and vision driven project. The hospital is founded on a strong culture and authentic core values (future blog posts will be dedicated to core values so keep an eye out!). As well as excelling in both clinical and business practices, the mission of the hospital is to set the standard for small animal specialist veterinary care with an ethical conscience. In the weeks and months to come I will be sharing with you much more about how we are making this a reality at The Ralph.

Team work makes our dream work

The Ralph will provide a fantastic range of services and patients will be treated by an experienced team of referral clinicians and nurses who all share our ethos of providing excellent care with compassion. We will be providing more details of our growing team within this blog, including showcasing the many (clinical and non-clinical!) talents of our people!

Watch this space…

So, as you can see, you will definitely want to stay tuned! This is where we are going to share details of all of the refurbishment work, including the big milestone moments (of which I am sure that there will be plenty!). We will also be sharing more about our growing team, the story of how we got here, and much more about how our cultural ethos is going to have a huge effect on what we are building at The Ralph.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

Thank you for being part of this journey with us. It is great to have you here, and I can’t wait to keep you updated with all of our ongoing activities. Our journey has well and truly begun and I could not be more excited for what lays ahead. Our journey is indeed one of a thousand steps but I am pleased to say that we have definitely already covered some ground!

Please feel free to share this blog with anyone you think would find it useful or interesting. And if you have any questions at all, drop us a line!

Stay well and stay tuned,
