We are on the the main road next to the Christie Hospital, between Withington and Didsbury village. We have ample free parking spaces for clients on site both at the front and the rear of the building.

We are based in the ground and lower ground floors of 567 Wilmslow Road. The apartments on the upper floors, accessed via the external staircase, are owned by a separate company unrelated to us.

Getting to us by bus, tram or rail

The practice is next to the Oak Road bus stop which is served by the 42, 42A, 42B, 42C and 142 local buses. Find your way using the Transport for Greater Manchester journey planner.

Our nearest Metrolink tram stop is West Didsbury (10 min walk, served by the East Didsbury - Rochdale / Shaw & Crompton lines via the city centre). Our nearest railway station is East Didsbury (5 min taxi or 30 min walk, with links to many local stations in Manchester, Cheshire and beyond).

Accessibility & COVID-19 safety


Every person is welcome at Manchester Cat Clinic. We want all humans and cats to feel comfortable and well cared for from the moment they meet us.

Our access and client areas are all step-free, and we have a new gender-neutral accessible toilet close to the waiting room.

We are more than happy to carry your cat carrier to and from the car park for you. Just bring your mobile phone and call reception when you arrive so that someone can come out and assist you.

We are happy to take routine enquiries via telephone or email. Appointments can be booked online, on the telephone or in person.

If there is anything else we can do to help you, just ask.


If there is anything we can do to make you feel more comfortable in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic, just ask. Our vets & nurses are happy to wear a mask and use social distancing while in the consultation room with you if requested. We can also seat you somewhere quieter if the waiting room is busy.

Please avoid attending the surgery if you are feeling unwell wherever possible. Visiting essential services such as veterinary surgeries can be very worrying for people with health conditions which put them at greater risk from infectious diseases. We should all do what we reasonably can to help each other feel safe.

The oldest vets in Manchester

Did you know? 567 Wilmslow Road has held a veterinary surgery for longer than any other premises in Manchester. The first vet to open a practice here in 1948 also lived at the practice and consulted out of his front room. The business later became Hargreaves & Relph then Boundary Vets, before being sold to a large corporate chain and eventually closing in 2020.

567 Wilmslow Road is now returning to its origins as an independent, locally-owned, family-run practice with the creation of Manchester Cat Clinic as we take over and renovate the site. 


Outside of our normal opening hours, our clients will be looked after by the highly skilled team at Vets Now. For more information, see the Emergencies page.
