New £1.4m Veterinary Practice Opens In Warrington In Major Boost For Pet Owners

A NEW £1.4 million veterinary practice has opened in a major boost for pet owners across Cheshire.

Beech House Veterinary Centre has celebrated the start of 2023 by opening the doors to its brand-new site following an extensive refurbishment project spanning five months.

Beech House Vets had outgrown its home and has relocated next door after the larger adjoining property on Wilderspool Causeway in Warrington was transformed into a state-of-the-art practice.

The expanded facilities and latest high-tech equipment mean the veterinary team is able to provide clients with the best possible treatment and care for their pets.

Beech House Vets now boasts six consulting rooms, three operating theatres, two digital X-ray rooms, an ultra-sound suite, a dental suite and a separate lab.

Compassionate end-of-life care was a priority when designing the space so there is also a dedicated bereavement room where clients will be able to spend time with their pet in a quiet and calm space.

Sports broadcaster and client Andrew Cotter was among the first to visit when Beech House Vets, which is part of Willows Veterinary Group, hosted an open day on Sunday 8th January. 

Andrew and his Labradors, Olive and Mabel, became social media stars when their endearing lockdown videos in which Andrew commentated on their canine capers went viral. 

Jodie Cunningham, the St Helens RLFC and England player who was previously part of the Beech House reception team, was also at the open day to join the celebrations.

The £1.4 million practice was funded by VetPartners, a veterinary group which owns 148 of the UK’s most respected and trusted veterinary practices, including Willows Veterinary Group.

Clients now benefit from a larger waiting room with an area just for cats. There is also a cattery on a different floor to the dog ward, a dedicated cat consultation room to reduce feline anxiety, and separate isolation areas for cats and dogs when admitted with an infectious disease. 

A larger reception area means the office support team is now working front of house, rather than behind the scenes, and are on hand to discuss any insurance or finance queries. 

Practice manager Sarah Cunningham said the team was really excited about moving to a more modern clinical environment where they will now be able to work more efficiently with additional space behind the scenes, including a dedicated laboratory and separate ultrasound suite.

She said: “The clients will also see such a huge difference, from us having more consultation rooms to the separate bereavement room so they don’t feel rushed at that difficult time. There’s also more parking which is great for our clients who have had to work around the building work since August.”
