Our branch surgeries are all sited strategically from the Park Street Hospital where we can provide a high level of hospitalisation facilities. Each branch has an experienced branch head nurse and motivated team of Veterinary Surgeons, Nurses and Receptionists.

About the Role
Your normal hours of work are 40 hours per week, over 4 days a week with 1 in 3 Saturdays, allowing a great work life balance.
Once graduates are ready to consult alone, they will have their own diary column, that has bespoke appointment durations that suites the graduate’s capability. Put things in place which aligns with the individuals capability reduces stress and promotes health mental wellbeing.
We have a director meeting every week, where all feedback is discussed and necessary changes to accommodate the graduate are put into place. Directors communicate regularly with the mentor, allowing successful clinical and a growth in confidence for the graduate.
All branches have an RVN as a branch head, who are all very supportive of graduates, feeding information back to the directors and mentor on a regular basis, allowing any necessary changes to graduates’ role to be put in place.
