Corona Virus Update 19 May 2020
Following consultation with our colleagues at Scott Mitchell Associates, Intake Veterinary Services, Robson Prescott and Alnorthumbria Vets we are developing a strategy to enable us to move through the Governments Covid 19 Recovery plan and begin to adjust and expand the services we offer but we must acknowledge that veterinary practices are still not operating business as usual. Our priority remains the safety of our workforce and control of virus spread amongst the population.
We will continue to risk assess each case and each request for care. We have measures in place to enable treatment to take place while social distancing is observed. Clients who request a visit will be offered help on how to manage the vet visit and their own safety preparations. We hope that with the cooperation and support of our clients we will be able to carry out nearly all our normal services in a safe and efficient manner.
Corona Virus Update 29 March 2020
As expected in these unprecedented times the advice from our Governing bodies has changed.
On Monday 23rd March the Prime Minister declared the country was in lockdown in a bid to combat the Covid 19 pandemic and provide support to our NHS, thus preventing many, many deaths. As a result, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (our professional governing body) quickly responded, advising all veterinary surgeons up and down the country on how they must act.
The advice is that veterinary surgeons must immediately reduce face to face contact, switching to providing urgent and emergency care only, fulfilment to urgent prescriptions and maintaining a food supply.
In the light of the situation we are all facing, we intend to email all clients to explain the strategies and plans we are putting in place to ensure we can continue to provide services to the equine community.
The clinic is manned with minimal staff, with strict protocols in place at all times.
If you need to attend the clinic for medication collection, we ask that you telephone first and we will advise you of the procedure to follow.
In order to deliver the best possible health care service for your pets whilst safeguarding the welfare of our team and the general public we have decided to take the following responsible steps:
