New Head of Equine Orthopaedics, Dr Fran Henson, joins AHT to strengthen equine clinical and research work

We are delighted that Dr Fran Henson will be joining the AHT as Head of Equine Orthopaedics from 4 November 2019.

I am very excited to be joining the Animal Health Trust.  Over the years I have been extremely impressed with the work undertaken there and the dedication and passion of the staff.  I look forward to helping drive the future clinical work and research at the equine clinic.

Dr Fran Henson

Dr Henson is a recognised specialist in equine surgery (orthopaedics) with over 20 years of experience in treating poorly performing or lame horses.  Her appointment will focus on providing a fully comprehensive referral service for the diagnosis and treatment of lameness, back problems and poor performance and continuing to develop her comparative orthopaedic research programme.

Dr Henson is an extremely well respected clinician and researcher and her appointment will ensure that we will continue to build on the solid foundation of the AHT’s equine clinic.  I look forward to working with Dr Henson and growing the equine clinic in 2020 and beyond.
