The Scarsdale Veterinary Group is a large and highly respected veterinary practice providing animal health services to a wide range of species including equine, farm animal and small animals, including exotics.

The Group is based in Derby but has grown and developed over 60 years into one of the country's largest veterinary practices covering Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire.  It provides first opinion and referral services to this area, as well as being a leading employer with approximately 140 staff.

Saunders Boston has led the design team in the development of the Group’s core hospital facilities on two separate sites.

A project to develop a new ‘Small Animal Hospital’ has been successfully implemented at Pride Park in central Derby.  As well as the development of state of the art medical and diagnostic facilities this project provides for a comprehensive range of services including, hydrotherapy, grooming, retail and boarding, to cover the needs of small animal pet care.

At the Group’s established 'Large Animal Hospital' at their Markeaton site on the edge of Derby a further project has been completed to refurbish and extend the existing hospital to provide new and modernised facilities to enable the Group to provide a high level of care for large animals with a particular emphasis on equine treatment.

Both of the hospital projects have been developed in partnership with the nearby University of Nottingham new school of veterinary medicine, to create a new and innovative educational facility for training students attending the school, also designed by Saunders Boston.

The design team has overcome a number of issues to progress this design, not least, gaining planning permission on two challenging sites including negotiations with the ‘Environment Agency’ regarding flood defence strategies.
