Over the past year Argyll Ilfracombe has tried to continue to provide the best service possible. However, our Ilfracombe site needs renovation, has limited facilities and makes it difficult to meet our high standards of service and clinical care. It is due to these factors and after careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close Argyll Vets in Ilfracombe as from 28th May 2021.
Argyll Veterinary Centre has recently developed a kinship with Charter Vets who are based in Roundswell, Pilton and Ilfracombe. The decision to work together allows us to pull our resources and offer all of our clients an even greater range of facilities and services.
What this means for our clients
We are going to operate a phased closure of the Argyll Ilfracombe site reducing the opening hours in May to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays 8.30am-6.30pm.
In addition, we are allocating more consulting appointments at our Barnstaple and Braunton Practices, where we have parking available at both sites.
Pets’ clinical histories are held within a secure database, accessible by both Argyll and Charter Vets. This enables us to continue to give care to our clients’ pet, without interruptions or delay at any of our branches.
This also means that clients have the option of using any of the Argyll or Charter Vets’ sites with the closest two being Argyll Braunton and Charter Vets Ilfracombe. Both of these offer Saturday opening hours.
