How much is the hospital costing?
The new PDSA Pet Wellbeing Centre will cost around £3.7 million to build and equip.
How are you paying for the new hospital?
PDSA is fundraising to raise the money needed to build the new hospital. We have already raised an incredible £2.3 million thanks to our generous supporters and partners.
How will the new hospital be better than the current hospital?
The new PDSA Pet Wellbeing Centre will be modern and designed to enable us to provide the best possible treatment for all our pet patients long into the future.
It will feature a bigger, brighter waiting area, with separate areas for cats and dogs, eight consulting rooms and two operating theatres. It was also have a specialist dental theatre, a diagnostic room, digital x-ray facilities, improved kennel facilities and more car parking.
Why are you building a new hospital?
The current hospital on Dunkirk Road has been our much-loved home in Nottingham for over 60 years. Sadly it is now struggling to cope with the number of pets that need our help. It’s too small and lacks some of modern facilities we need.
When will it open?
Building work will start Summer 2021 and the Wellbeing Centre will be open early 2022. More information about exact dates will be available closer to the time.
When is the current hospital closing?
The current hospital will remain open until the new Centre is ready to open, to ensure minimal disruption to services. Further details will be provided closer to the time.
What will happen to the current hospital?
The current hospital will close permanently once the new Centre is ready to open.
Will I need to re-register?
No, your registration will continue as normal.
Will eligibility or services change?
No, postcode catchment areas, eligibility and the veterinary services we provide will stay the same.
What is the address of the new Centre?
MarCity Park, Radford Road, Basford, Nottingham, NG7 7EF
How can I get to the new site?
The new Centre will have better car parking for owners to allow easier access. It is close to the main road and public transport networks.
Why are you moving to Basford?
Rebuilding at the current location is not an option because the land is leased.
We needed a location big enough to house the new Pet Wellbeing Centre, that is located within our wide catchment area and where the need for PDSA is greatest. The site in Basford provides all of these, along with right transport links and enough parking to make it more accessible to more people in need.
