Our History And Ethos
Broadway Veterinary Surgery first opened in 1979 and has now been providing quality care to our clients and their pets for 40 years. We are a community based, dedicated small animal practice based on the Wirral.
In the early days Broadway was a one-vet single-site practice operating from our original site of 2 Broadway, Higher Bebington, Wirral. In 1999, Broadway was the first local practice to become fully open, seven days a week. Additional branches were opened in Wallasey in 2004, then in Heswall in 2012, and finally our original site in Higher Bebington was replaced with a larger building, just across the road, at the end of 2014.
We have several vets working in our practices, with varying special interests from orthopaedics to soft tissue surgery and medicine. Some are in the process of training for further specialist professional qualifications. In 2002 Broadway became a veterinary nurse training practice (TP) affiliated with Myerscough College in Preston. We have several students, each going for day-release to Myerscough College, at varying stages of their training. We also provide placement facilities for undergraduate degree-level veterinary nurses and student veterinary surgeons. Student nurses work in the practice for a time before starting the two-year specialist course, and many of them stay with us after they qualify. All three of our branch head nurses trained with us and have continued to develop their careers within our practices.
Our dedicated team works hard to provide the high quality and individual care that all our clients and their pets expect of us. Broadway is a modern and progressive practice but with an unashamedly old-school ethos;
'If animals sicken seven days a week, we must treat them seven days a week'
Therefore, we are available seven days a week. We further believe that all routine appointments, vaccinations and operations should also be available at weekends to our registered clients, at no additional cost. We recognise that some of our clients are simply too busy through the traditional working week. Our Bebington and Wallasey branches are fully open at weekends, 8:30am - 6:30pm for all of our registered clients.
