About Eastcott Vets
Eastcott Vets - History
Eastcott Vets has been part of of the Swindon community since the 1960’s
It began life on Eastcott Hill, hence the name. In 1997 Eastcott Vets moved from Eastcott Hill to Bath Road to what had been the Old Town Club on Bath Road. This coincided with the practice being accredited with the status of Veterinary Hospital – the highest accreditation for a small animal veterinary practice.
In 2001 we were the winner of the national Petplan Veterinary Practice of the Year award which was recognition of how far the practice had come.
In 2011 we moved into our new hospital building where we have amongst the best facilities for a first opinion practice in the country. Eastcott Vets now has 3 veterinary surgeries in Swindon, Bath Road, Old Town, Clive Parade, Cricklade Road Clinics plus our large Clinic & Hospital at Edison Park, Dorcan.
2012 Eastcott Vets win the UK Veterinary Practice of the Year again!
In 2012 we again won the Petplan Veterinary Practice of the Year award and are the only practice in the country to have won this prestigious award twice. In addition, vets, nurses and staff have been nominated for awards every year since the awards have been running.
