Covid-19 Guide to Visiting the Surgery

Everything you need to know about our surgeries during the easing of lockdown: 18 August 2021

Thanks again for your patience during this challenging year: now that the pandemic is easing, and autumn fast approaching, we want to keep you updated regarding our COVID-19 policies as we move forward as a team into the coming months. We welcome the return of clients into the waiting areas and consultations rooms.

This will make communication and effective treatment easier for everyone. Over the last year, we have managed to keep all our surgeries open for you and your pets. Our staff have continued to wear masks at all times in clinical areas, and will continue to follow strict COVID-19 guidelines laid out by the UK government.

 

We would like to provide some guidelines to keep our clients and staff safe.
  Wear a mask when within our surgeries,

  Adhere to our one-in, one-out policy across all surgeries.
  Do not attend the clinic if you experience any COVID-19 symptoms.

With your cooperation and patience we can continue to keep all of our surgeries open for you and your pets.
If you are unable to attend the surgery for any of the above reasons, remember you can book an online consultation today so you and your pet can rest easy. Book now. 

 

Thanks to everyone again for helping our team stay safe over the last year, and here’s to a brighter future!
