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.

Vet Abbey Taylor will run the new branch in Claremont Road, which will offer general health checks, microchipping, neutering, dental care, vaccinations, surgery and diagnostics.

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.
