HRH The Princess Royal visited Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging last month to recognise the company’s 2021 Queen’s Award for Innovation, highlighting the value of veterinary innovation to the wider community.
The award recognises Hallmarq’s 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner, which was designed from the ground up for small animal veterinary practices. Princess Anne toured the factory and offices, meeting staff from all departments and Hallmarq’s guest, Dr Kate Richards, president of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
Hallmarq CEO Mick Crosthwaite said: “It was an honour for our team to welcome HRH The Princess Royal and show her around our head office in Guildford. Hallmarq has been at the forefront of developing innovative diagnostic systems for veterinary practices over the last 20 years. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do, and this award is well deserved recognition for the team’s passion and hard work in pursuit of our goal of improving the lives of animals and the people that care for them.”
