Update on current situation

We have resumed normal routine consultations and this includes all non urgent cases – Vaccinations, lumps, anal glands etc.  If you need to be seen then please call us on our normal number 01822 854255.  We have fewer staff than normal so our opening hours are still slightly restricted and our Tavistock Branch consulting times have changed (see opening hours).

Clients are currently not allowed inside the practice as we are trying to make things as safe as possible.  We know people are now allowed in more shops etc but we feel this is the best and safest option for us at this time.  The infection rate is low and hopefully gets lower but we have consultation rooms which would make it hard to social distance effectively.  Therefore we are still seeing clients outside or on the phone and taking poets inside to examine etc.  We do not want to be caught out by the track and trace system as this would mean we would be shut down for 2 weeks or more.


If you want a routine or urgent appointment please call us as normal on 01822 854255
