As most COVID-19 restrictions are lifted starting from 19th July 2021, we continue to review our COVID-19 risk assessment in line with the changing Government guidelines and guidance from our governing body – the RCVS – alongside the high rate of infections that still prevail.
We know that many of you are looking forward to being able to accompany your pets back inside the practice as restrictions ease. The health and safety of our clients and colleagues alongside the welfare of the animals in our care remain our top priority. In some of our sites, we are able to facilitate clients accompanying their pet into the waiting room or consulting room. In other sites, this is not yet possible.
We are continually reassessing the situation and will keep making steps in the right direction over the coming months.
Given the current increase in COVID cases, the fact that many of our staff are not yet fully vaccinated and to help minimise the risk of infection, our teams will continue to wear masks. To protect us all and in order for us to be here for you and your pets providing the best possible care, we request that you wear a face mask at all times in our building.
We do appreciate some of our clients are unable to wear a face covering due to a disability or for health reasons. In these cases, we may adapt our procedures to ensure both your safety and that of our colleagues such as maintaining social distancing.
We also ask that you do not attend the practice unless you have called us first and booked an appointment. When booking, our reception team will explain our current arrangements and anything you need to do on arrival. Thank you.
