“State-of-the-art” £1.4m Leeds veterinary hospital to create jobs upon opening

A new £1.4m veterinary practice, which will benefit thousands of pets across Leeds, will open its doors in May.

Beechwood Veterinary Group is opening the new “state-of-the-art” facility at Temple House in Seacroft. Some of the team members based at Beechwood’s current practices in Crossgates and Chapel Allerton, Leeds, will transfer to the new site before the surgery opens to clients on May 23.

Clients bringing their pets for treatments and routine care will benefit from “the latest high-tech new equipment”, including seven consulting rooms so more pets can be seen by vets and nurses, three operating theatres with top surgical facilities, and a dedicated x-ray room.

The additional operating space will enable Beechwood Vets to offer laparoscopy, or keyhole surgery, providing a minimally invasive alternative to a traditional spay surgery, as well as procedures like biopsies of the liver, kidneys and intestines.

The practice will also have a dedicated room to provide a “calm, quiet space” for clients and their pets during difficult times, bringing comfort to owners whose pets are receiving end-of-life care.

Funding for the £1.4m expansion has been provided by VetPartners, a York based veterinary group which has nearly 150 of the UK’s most respected and trusted small animal, equine, mixed and farm practices.

The relocation will lead to the recruitment of additional team members, including vets and nurses. Following the opening of the new practice, Beechwood’s previous sites at Crossgates, and Chapel Allerton will remain open as branch surgeries for routine healthcare, along with the other surgeries in Beeston and Garforth.

Beechwood Vets clinical director Louise Mallinson said: “We will be able to offer a much better service at the new practice as there is much more space for improved facilities and it will be much more comfortable for clients and patients.

“Having separate cat and dog facilities creates a much more relaxed and comforting space for patients, especially cats, and having on-site parking will be a huge bonus for our clients.

“As well as providing improved facilities for clients and patients, it will also be a great place to work for our veterinary team. It’s an exciting time for us all as we have been closely involved in the planning process to ensure the practice meets everyone’s needs.”
