Blenheim Shared Veterinary After Hours Care

 

As from 1st October Vets on Alabama will be working in with The Vet Centre Marlborough to offer a joint after-hours service on a three month trial basis.

 

This new arrangement is very similar to what is happening in other New Zealand towns that are not fortunate enough to have an independent after-hours service.  We see a need to be able to have a vet available for after hours in both companion animal and production animal outside of normal clinical hours. The two main reasons for this is that the various areas of veterinary medicine are becoming more specialized and also the fact that  it is becoming increasingly more difficult to service all areas out of hours with one vet.

 

We believe that this change in the way after-hours veterinary care is offered in Blenheim will be beneficial for all concerned.

 

As this will be a trial, we welcome your feedback to enable us to take this into account as we work through the trial period.
