Due to low staffing levels, we are sorry to advise that Leyland and Coppull branch have been shut for the remainder of this week.
Our Chorley branch is open from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday, 8:45am- 2:30pm Saturday and 10am – 1pm Sunday.
Outside these times emergency cover will of course still be provided by an external provider.
We would like to reassure our clients that we will continue to see patients and perform investigations and operations when the need is urgent. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any concerns.
When appropriate, we can also offer telephone consultations, as well as house calls (these only when absolutely necessary).
We will be providing free delivery of all prescriptions and food within a 5 mile radius of our branches, and can post most items to those who live further afield.
We will of course continue to update Facebook regularly, and would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your cooperation and patience during a time which is so unsettling for all of us.

CORONAVIRUS & PETS
We have received a number of enquiries from pet owners concerned about Coronavirus in their pets.
Whilst a dog in Hong Kong has tested weakly positive for Covid-19, it has shown no symptoms and it is not yet known whether the dog was truly infected or had been contaminated by an infected person. There is, as yet, no evidence that pets can spread or be affected by coronavirus.
It is however, always sensible to employ good hygiene around pets, for example ensuring you wash your hands after touching them.
If you contract coronavirus, current advice is to avoid contact with your pet, avoiding cuddling and petting them, and where possible asking another person in the household to care for them.
Obviously this a new disease and more information may be available with time. We shall endeavour to keep our clients updated.
SAFEGUARDING YOU & OUR STAFF
Due to the confirmation of cases in the area, please could our lovely clients follow the advice below in order to safeguard our staff:
- If you have symptoms please do not attend for routine appointments.
- When attending for an appointment, please limit the amount of people coming with the pet.
- Please use the hand sanitisers that are on reception.
With huge thanks in advance from Andrea, Jerome and the team
