Vet surgery gives a sneaky-peek into new facility

A Wirral veterinary surgery is giving a sneaky-peek inside its new state-of-the-art facility which is about to open in West Kirby.

The transformed Acorn Veterinary Centre in Acacia Grove is run by the independently-owned Willows Veterinary Group.

The former buildings attached to the end-of-terrace three-storey Victorian town house, which once housed a family printing firm and forms part of the surgery, has been demolished.

In its place is a modern, glass-fronted 3,000 sq ft single storey building which will house the latest equipment and pet accommodation and will have a staff team of 19 which will include the creation of two new jobs.

The new practice, which was built by local firm JFW Construction of Bebington, will house three consultation rooms, a double theatre and an imagery suite which will house X-ray, ultrasound, endoscopy and ECG equipment.

For head vet Tom McGowan, it is the exciting conclusion of a 10-month project and he said his team could not wait to move in to their new premises from their temporary home at Hillcroft Farm in Frankby Road, Frankby.

Tom McGowan said: “We have a lot of very loyal clients who entrust us with the care of their pets because they like the friendliness of the staff and our high levels of care it will be fantastic to be able to continue this in such brilliant facilities.

“We are basically taking our very up-to-date service and making sure we have a facility to match which staff can feel proud to call their place of work and our clients will be impressed by and feel comfortable in when they visit.

“It is airy and very modern with high ceilings and skylights which let in lots of natural light. I am delighted with the finished building and we cannot wait to start treating and caring for our patients there.”
