Out of Hours Care Provisions

Not all Veterinary practices are Veterinary Hospitals. Our Veterinary Hospital is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) – and is the only one in this South Lincolnshire area. This means our staff, buildings, equipment, service and hygiene are of the highest standard. The hospital is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency cases and in-patient care. To find out more about the benefits to our clients of the RCVS accreditation scheme you can view their video by clicking here.

When the surgery is closed we always have a vet and a nurse on duty in case of emergencies and to deal with any animals hospitalised in the practice for treatment. The out of hours will always be based at our own surgery with staff you know and you will not need to trail hours across the country to a remote out of hours care centre. This means we always have your notes and previous history to hand and usually saves time.
If the surgery is closed the answer phone will kick in and give you the mobile number of the out of hours vet directly, not a call centre. You can then discuss the case and decide what needs to be done with the veterinary surgeon directly. (Please see pricing section for the out of hours surcharges that apply to this work) Should your pet need to be kept in the surgery when we are closed and especially over night, the on-duty nurse, who stays on the premises when the practice is closed, will check on your pet at appropriate times relative to the severity of it’s problem and the degree of clinical help that can be administered to that condition.
