Job Description

The Role

A fixed term maternity leave position is available for a Veterinary Surgeon. The position is full time (40 hours per week). The OOH rota is shared, including 1 weekend in 4.

All our RVNs and trainee nurses have completed the ‘Fear Free’ training scheme.

We are a gold certificate cat friendly clinic and we consider the emotional wellbeing of our patients as important as their physical health. We have a range of good quality equipment including patient warming systems, infusion pumps, capnography, blood pressure, tonometry, dental x-ray, doppler ultrasound, flexible gastroscope, bronchoscope, rigid endoscopes, laparoscopy, and in-house blood testing.

We have morning and afternoon rounds every day to discuss cases as well as monthly clinical and practice meetings. Professional development is encouraged.
