Westway Vets has invested £100,000 converting a former Whitley Bay newsagent into a new veterinary surgery.

The north-east’s biggest veterinary group now has 21 branches across the region and the new site will feature two consult rooms, reception area, a dispensary and waiting room.

Full service offering

Westway is part of VetPartners Limited – a collaboration of veterinary practices across the UK.

Managing director of Westway Jason Atherton said: “We are constantly looking to improve our services, and we see Whitley Bay as a prime location to expand the business.

“Our aim is to give clients access to a complete range of high-quality health care services for the benefit of their pets, and to be able to do that we need first-class premises.

‘Modern and convenient’

“We have invested £100,000 in a new site in Whitley Bay, where we have been able to create a modern, vibrant branch surgery, conveniently located in a residential area with plenty of parking for clients.”

The surgery will be fully staffed five days a week, with a team of two vets and two receptionists and will open on 1 November.
