The Eccleston practice is a spacious clinic having been a busy doctors surgery prior to becoming a veterinary practice. The clinic is a branch of the Chorley 24 hour practice where clients are currently going for surgery and work ups. Eccleston does have its own theatre so work ups could be done on site. A lovely, light and spacious clinic which is well worth a visit.
