Leading veterinary group, White Cross Vets has opened its twentieth practice and is generating new jobs as part of a £310,000 investment that has created a state-of-the-art facility near Manchester in Sale.
The practice opened on 17th June within a newly built mixed used development where Cross Street meets Washway Road, in Sale town centre. It offers a wide range of innovations including digital dental x-ray and ultrasound machines, an on-site laboratory and a technologically advanced surgical theatre.
In addition, there are separate sound-proofed cat and dog wards with all the latest pet calming technology including pheromone diffusers, ultra-soft bedding and warm LED lighting.
The practice is headed up by experienced veterinary surgeon and clinic director Jack Johnson, supported by veterinary nurses Hayley Mcaleer and Carly Newton. The trio all joined White Cross Vets, which is part of the Independent Vetcare Group, last year and have been working across the company’s established North West practices in Walkden, Widnes, St Helens and Liverpool, as well as Hyde, which opened last year.
Emily Garner has also been appointed as a client care co-ordinator and an additional vet will be appointed in the coming weeks. The team will expand further as the practice continues to build its client base.
Jack said: “We’re really excited to open in Sale with a brand new, state of the art practice that is fully equipped to carry out all types of operational procedures and has been designed entirely around the pets we will be treating.
“It incorporates all the best innovations from White Cross Vets’ 19 other practices to combine the veterinary industry’s latest technology with an extremely relaxing environment and there’s no doubt the pets we treat will respond positively to this. We’re already receiving high numbers of enquiries from local pet owners and we’re really looking forward to welcoming them into our practice.”
