History of the Runcorn Clinic
The Clinic first opened in the 1940s at Station Road in Runcorn. In the late 1950s it was transferred to a new building in Windmill Street, where it stands today. It is staffed by a paid vet and volunteers.
(Historical note: Opposite the clinic, there used to be a garage housing a Robin Reliant which was used to collect stray animals, taking dogs to the police station and the cats and small animals to a Mrs Wilkes to be rehomed.)
