After years of hard work (and COVID-19!), we are delighted to announce we will be opening the doors to our brand new, 24 hour hospital in Market Weighton on Monday 24th August 2020.
This new era for Wicstun is huge for not only the team, but also the veterinary world. As one of the few remaining truly independent groups, our dedicated teams will be able to care for your pets 24/7, 365 days a year onsite at the hospital with the same love and passion for veterinary care as always.
The hospital will support our Wicstun clients round the clock. Our sister practices will also be supported for their out of hours needs. End Cottage Vets and The Gables Vets will benefit from the fantastic night care teams at Wicstun hospital. As a group, our aim is to provide the outstanding care you know and have experienced, round the clock and for 365 days a year. We will have a dedicated and passionate night veterinary team onsite, with instant access to your pets medical records.
Our new hospital will be able to offer 24/7 hospital care for your pets along with new facilities including:
- A state of the art hydrotherapy unit with one of our very own nurses who specialises in rehabilitation
- Laparoscopic surgeries – a less invasive method of surgery reducing recovery time
- 3 theatres – this means we can reduce waiting times to restore your pets to full health asap
- In House laboratory – running those very important tests and results onsite
- Imaging suite – digital x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound scanner and video endoscopy
We are so excited to welcome you all to our new hospital and wish we could share it with you all as we intended but COVID-19 has put a hold on that. We are putting in place all the safety measures as per British Veterinary Association and government guidelines to ensure the health and wellbeing of all clients and staff.
We ask all clients to attend their appointment on time – we are allowing a limited number of clients inside the hospital at one time, in line with COVID safety. If you arrive early, please call the practice on 01430 873219 and the reception staff will let you know when you are able to enter the hospital. Our Vets and Nurses are more than happy to continue to provide consultations in the car park if you wish, please just let the reception know when you arrive.
We look forward to seeing all our lovely Market Weighton clients at our new hospital!
