Providing Pro Active Veterinary Care For Your Pet
SAFE FOR YOU, SAFE FOR US...!
Castle Veterinary Centre continues to offer veterinary advice & care for pets within an environment that is safe for clients, their animals & our staff. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic we have been very grateful to the vast majority of clients who have complied with protocols designed to keep both them & our staff safe & so has enabled us to continue to look after the health & welfare of our patients.
We are now welcoming clients back into consulting rooms, however, after consultation with members of the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS), we will continue to ask clients to wear masks / face coverings & observe social distancing guidelines whilst on the premises - within the Terms & Conditions of our services.
We understand that some people are medically exempt from wearing masks, & so will happily conduct consultations outside, offering the canopy of door 63 for shelter & privacy if required.
For those of us able to protect ourselves & each other by mask wearing, please ensure that the mask is worn correctly over the mouth & nose at all times. If you do not have a mask, we will provide one free of charge. These should be worn with the coloured side outermost & have an inbuilt metal clip which should be gently moulded to the bridge of the nose to help keep it in place. Our policies will be reviewed on a regular basis according to the risks & levels of Covid-19 infection within the community.
Booking an appointment / consultation with us will confirm your consent & acceptance of Castle Veterinary Centre's Terms & Conditions & GDPR (click for each document)
Who are we...?
Here at Castle Veterinary Centre, we currently employ 2 veterinary surgeons, 4 nursing staff, and an office manager, and we all work together to look after your pets. We are all involved in Continued Professional Development - ongoing training - to keep us abreast of the latest advances in veterinary medicine and practice.
During the Covid19 pandemic, we have split our staff into morning and afternoon shifts, we are all here working hard to provide you with the best service possible within the current guidelines of the RCVS (The Royal College of Veterinary Services) our governing body, and the UK Government.
We have regular in-house meetings and training as well as attending local, national and international courses and congresses - when they are available. Within the practice our staff are encouraged to develop their particular professional interests and skills; this enables us to refer patients ‘in-house’ so that we can offer the most appropriate care needed.
All nurses take turns in doing both reception and nursing work, so you will see all of them at the "front desk" from time to time.
