Newmarket Equine Medicine Discussion Group

Newmarket Equine Medicine Discussion Group (NEMDG) is an informal group that meets on or around the first Tuesday of each quarter (unless otherwise stated) to discuss contemporary issues in equine medicine. The meetings take place at Rossdales Equine Hospital, Exning, Newmarket CB8 7NN and Doubletree Hotel, Newbury, RG20 8XY (the latter via Skype).

The target audience for NEMDG is clinicians and academics and we aim to ensure a high level of discussion. It is not our intention to provide CPD but rather to offer an opportunity to discuss recent and ongoing research and future concepts relevant to equine medical practice. All veterinary clinicians, nurses and student and researchers with an interest in the topics under discussion are welcome.

Meetings at Newmarket take place in the Simon Gibson Room, Rossdales Equine Hospital and usually start at 6.30pm, unless otherwise stated.  There is no registration process for Newmarket – just come along, enjoy a glass of wine and take part in the discussion. If you would like to attend in Newbury, space is more limited so please contact in advance. The meetings are generously sponsored by the Beaufort Cottage Educational Trust and are free to attend.   

If you would like to be added to the email invitation list for future events, please contact

Please note that the programme will be updated throughout the year, so please join our email list for up-to-date information.

Updates in Equine Oncology

3rd April 2018 - 6.30pm
Rossdales Equine Hospital, Exning, Newmarket CB8 7NN and Doubletree Hotel, Newbury, RG20 8XY (the latter via Skype)

Anna Hollis, Senior Clinician in Equine Oncology & interim Clinical Lead, Centre for Equine Studies, Animal Health Trust, Newmarket

Anna will concentrate on research updates and the results of novel treatments for equine sarcoids. We will discuss the first 100 sarcoid cases treated with HDR brachytherapy - what we’ve learnt and how we’ve improved - and looking at the use of strontium plesiotherapy for sarcoids in difficult locations/recurrent lesions.
