Over the past three years, Blenheim Veterinary Centre has grown and along with Paul, Mary and Adam we now have another Vet, Emma Coldron who joined us in August 2004. We also have Katrina who joins our other nurses Louise and Dawn. Along with new staff, we have a third large consultation room.
We have added two more strings to our bow with help from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons: We are now a member of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme as a Tier 2 General Practice which means that we have to meet rigorous standards and need to take part in regular inspections (details can be found on www.rcvs.org.uk); Also, we are a RCVS Approved Training Practice for Veterinary Nurses and have started to train our first Veterinary Nurse, Katie.
We continue to strive to improve the service that we give our patients and each year look closely at what additional equipment, service or facility we can offer.
During 2006 we hope to significantly increase the size of our already spacious kennelling area and expand our independent dog grooming service – currently offered by Jane Haywood. We are purchasing a new state of the art ultrasound scanner and also offer an in-house referral service for detailed surgical procedures. Despite all of this we hope to remain a friendly practice and look forward to seeing all of you at a future JFD dog show.
A Veterinary Hospital is a Veterinary Practice with a great deal more. Hospitals are the only practices which are inspected independently to ensure that they match the stringent requirements set by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, our governing body. This is your guarantee that your Veterinary Hospital meets the highest standards for Veterinary Premises in the UK.
The standards cover a wide range of areas from the hygiene of the reception area, to nursing staff being on duty 24 hours each day of the year; from providing an isolation nursing care area, to monitoring anaesthetised patients. Most Veterinary Surgeons are under no obligation to provide these extensive facilities. They have chosen to meet these standards and to face regular re-inspections, because they wish to provide the highest standard of practice for your pet. To learn more information about veterinary hospitals, you can visit website. You can also expect the same high level of care in the treatment of your pet, both in sickness and in health. It is important to remember that a Veterinary Hospital also provides the routine care, health checks and vaccinations for your pet. As a valued client of this practice you will know that your Veterinary Surgeon has the backing of all the facilities of one of Britain’s Veterinary Hospitals whenever the need arises, throughout your pet’s life.
