In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic and following the Prime Ministers announcement, it is important for us to put measures in place to help protect our team and our clients.
With IMMEDIATE effect as directed by our governing body, we will be restricting appointments to EMERGENCY treatment only. If you are concerned, staff will be available between 8.30am and 6pm by telephone. Outside of these hours, if you have an EMERGENCY please telephone our usual number 01482 648942 and and you will be given contact details for our out of hours emergency service provided by Vets Now.
As per Public Health England Advice to self-isolate for 7 days. We politely ask that anyone who is potentially symptomatic (cough/fever) DOES NOT attend the practice. Please arrange for a friend or relative to bring your pet to the surgery on your behalf.
We are able to arrange the supply of ESSENTIAL repeat medication by post and ask that you ring the practice for further details and fees. Alternatively a collection point will be available outside the front door for clients to collect medication but only by prior arrangement with the clinic.
On arrival to the practice please DO NOT enter the building, instead call 01482 648942 to inform reception of your arrival. The vet will then come out to you in the car park.
Only ONE person should accompany the pet at any time.
Hand washing facilities are available in the waiting area. We ask that all visitors to the practice wash their hands on entry to the premises.
We are now providing a clinic for only those individuals who are at higher risk from the Coronavirus (clients over 70 or pregnant) where more stringent measures will be implemented to further reduce the chance of infection.
We are currently only accepting card payments and ask you use the hand gel provided before touching the card machines.
As the situation evolves we may need to update our advice. Any changes will be circulated. We thank you for your co-operation and patience and ask that all staff and clients keep themselves up to date with current NHS guidance, on how to avoid catching or spreading Covid-19.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your pets, please do contact the team at The Gables Veterinary Centre on 01482 648942 and we will do our best to help.
We hope you all keep safe and well. Thank you again, for your understanding and help in implementing these measures.
