The Philip Leverhulme Equine Hospital treats more than 2,000 horses each year. Animals are referred from vets all over the north west of England. The hospital is run by the University of Liverpool, and provides both emergency cover and appointments for routine referral cases.
The hospital’s focus is on veterinary training, as well as rapid response to incidents. It aims to admit emergency cases within 10 minutes, which requires a high standard of coordination within its team.
The University of Liverpool contacted Brentwood to discuss two way radios for use across its site on the Wirral. The Leahurst Campus incorporates intensive care facilities, scanners, stables and operating theatres.
Due to the large distances involved, and the highly varied nature of the different facilities, the hospital wanted a reliable solution that would ensure reliable communication indoors and out. It also wanted to ensure that staff could converse quickly in emergency situations, without capacity limitations.
