The Edinburgh Clinic


The Edinburgh Clinic (Aspen Healthcare ongoing) was a vision born out of Dr Martin Errington’s (an Edinburgh based Consultant Radiologist) existing private imaging practice, ask Errington Associates. Horsetiger was retained in in 2003 to assist in the overall business development of Errington Associates.


This process involved a complete strategic review, planning and then implementation strategy with Alasdair Muir of Horsetiger actively involved in the negotiations with suppliers, clients and agencies.

As a consequence of the growth and in response to a market analysis and feasibility study, The Edinburgh Clinic was developed.

The Clinic is a fully integrated diagnostic (MRI, CT, X ray, DEXA and ultrasound), consulting and day case theatre clinic facility offering private clients a new one stop healthcare option in the heart of Edinburgh.

Horsetiger managed the business launch and project including the selection and management of architects & contractors, staff and management appointments, engaging consultants, purchasing, legal liaison and delivering a sales and marketing strategy to promote this unique facility. Horsetiger also led the negotiations with PMIs

Ray Stanbridge assumed the responsibility for the financial management of the project including business structuring & planning, securing finance and introducing financial systems and discipline to the business.

The Clinic opened January 2009 and has subsequently been purchased by Aspen Healthcare a dynamic US healthcare provider who are currently very active in growing their market presence in the UK. Horsetiger have since been retained by Aspen Healthcare to help promote The Edinburgh Clinic.

“Alasdair Muir and Horsetiger was involved in the Edinburgh Clinic from its conception. He was intimately involved in the development and delivery of this unique private facility in Edinburgh as well as occupying a senior management role at the opening of the  Clinic.
Subsequently when Aspen acquired the Edinburgh Clinic in 2011 his  understanding of the local and national private  healthcare environment and  his ability to be both pragmatic and engaging allowed us to call upon his services with confidence at any time.”
