As veterinary practices across the UK start to see clients return for more routine veterinary procedures, many practices will have to consider new ways of working, incorporating new hygiene procedures, social distancing and communication methods with their clients.
It is also likely that practices will see an increased workload, as those postponed appointments begin to fill the calendar. As we enter a “new normal” , many will take this as an opportunity to look at where efficiencies can be found in practice, in order to manage workload and patient care to the best of their capabilities.
If you are one of these practices looking to find efficiencies in practice and ensure the continued provision of the best patient care, a key consideration may be whether the equipment you have in the practice is capable of dealing with increased workloads and new ways of working.
If you were thinking of investing in new equipment prior to lockdown, you may now be concerned about the capital outlay for such equipment at a time when revenues are down, profits are strained and your staff are overloaded with work.As a company, who puts understanding our customer’s needs at the core of what we do, we at IMV imaging can support you through these difficult times and help your staff whilst taking the pressure off of practice finances.
Imaging equipment, whether that be X-ray or ultrasound, can play a critical role in case diagnosis and as such is an important diagnostic tool in a practice’s armoury. Having appropriate equipment can improve patient diagnosis, increase staff engagement and provide both direct and indirect revenues streams for the practice. Whilst now might seem a difficult time to consider buying new equipment and we recognise the challenges this may have, we have now removed the need for veterinary practices to make a large initial outlay to obtain new equipment, which could make new equipment something worth considering.
Through our partnership with Braemar Finance, we can offer flexible finance options. These range from low start hire purchase options, enabling you to match your repayments to expected income levels, through to leasing schemes taking away the headache and worry from equipment ownership and removing the risk of unexpected repair costs**. (** excluding misuse/accidental damage.)
Flexible solutions mean that you get the equipment that you want, performing the diagnoses that your clients need, and all for a fraction of the monthly revenues that the systems will generate for your practice. Our expert account management and clinical team can carry out demos and train you remotely, meaning you maximise time with your clients and can focus on providing the best in animal care. We can help you understand the return on investment potential of each solution and help you make the right decisions for your practice.
IMV imaging’s Commercial Director Lee McCloy comments:
