The Practice

We are an independent, friendly, family run practice that feels that we are an integral part of our local community.

We cover our own OOH work which means we can hospitalise animals and follow on with continuity of care and no concerns about transporting to another site, plus gives a wider, more interesting caseload.

We are welfare orientated and competitively priced, but aim to provide a high level of service. Locums comment on how welcoming we are.

We have a set 1 hour lunch break.

The Veterinary Director is a surgical certificate holder, so we do retain some more advanced surgical cases in house.

Currently, we have 3 Vets, 3 RVN’s and 1 part time VCA. We have a team of 1 full time and 4 part time receptionists.

This is a great chance to be involved in an independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
