When joining our Emergency Care plan, you are accepting these terms and conditions. It is important to read them carefully, and please ask a member of staff if you have any queries.

If you would like a copy of these terms

and conditions in larger print – please ask

at reception.


  1. The Out of Hours Emergency Care Plan is a rolling 12-month subscription that allows members access to our 24-hour emergency care team at our standard, normal day rate charges. This discount scheme is not an insurance policy.

  • Failure to make immediate payment for treatment forfeits discounts.
  • It is the on-call vets decision as to what constitutes an urgent out of hours appointment.
  1. The monthly subscription fee for your household will be determined by the number of registered companion animals on your account.
  2. A 14 day ‘waiting period’ will apply for all new joiners; emergency out of hours surcharges will be charged if you are seen within the first 14 days of subscription.

14. Failed Direct Debit payments, eg because of a lack of available funds, cause a significant increase in administration costs for the practice. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £5 for each failed payment. This administration charge will be added to your account.
15. After a failed Direct Debit payment, we will re-present our payment request to your bank after 3-5 working days.
16. If the second payment request also fails, a second administration charge may be added to your account.
