Up until now, we have run an “On Call” service for our OOH service. This meant that vets and nurses who had worked a full day shift and were due to work the next day too, took an emergency phone home and were often needed to come out to see appointments or do operations at any time of day or night.
Abington Park Vets have dedicated emergency vets who are only open at nights, weekends and bank holidays. Their fully qualified staff are on site all the time ready and waiting and inpatients receive an excellent standard of care. The staff receive regular training in emergency medicine. As they have not worked during the day, they are well rested and can provide the best care without having to cope with lack of sleep. This will allow us to raise the quality of the OOH service we provide to you and your pet.
We truly believe that this is a safer and better service for your pets both during the OOH period and normal opening hours.
