NEH at a glance

NEH in its current form was officially opened in October 2008, based at our site next to the 'Rearing Horse' roundabout at the entrance to Newmarket.

Before moving to its current premises, for 96 years the practice was located on the High Street in Newmarket. It was in 1912 that a veterinarian working in Newmarket, called William Livcock, moved into March House (subsequently renamed Reynolds House). Livcock was joined by Brayley Reynolds in 1923, and the practice gradually expanded over the century. It took its name from the partners at the time, and in its latest incarnation was known as Greenwood, Ellis and Partners, after Richard Greenwood and David Ellis.

If you look closely when you are at NEH, you will see the Walnut Trees along the grass frontage to the hospital in front of the stables. These trees are a link to our heritage on the High Street, as they are descendants of a large Walnut tree that was located in the centre of the old main yard.

We have grown substantially over the years and now have a team of over 40 veterinarians working from our Newmarket site, providing veterinary services both in the local area and to clients travelling from afar. This includes teams of vets focused on different disciplines – racehorses, breeding, sales, sports and leisure, and endurance. The hospital provides multidisciplinary specialist referral services. We have also expanded our associations with a number of practices in Europe, about which more information can be found here
