Medivet Richmond is the 24 Hour hospital for the Richmond region, and it supports the other practices in the area with their patients, both out of hours and in terms of hospitalisation or referral services, as well as having its own 1st opinion side of the practice.
It will provide the right candidate with a good surgical and medical caseload. There are 5-7 experienced days vets to discuss cases with at handover, and managing the difficult cases is seen as a real team effort.
You will work with 2 experienced and pro active support staff each night- normally a nurse and an experienced PCA. The hospital is well kitted out and is soon to have its own CT, to help work cases up to the next level.
The practice is based a 7 minute drive away from the famous Kew Gardens and is a short drive from Richmond Park - the home of the Isabella Plantation gardens and free roaming deer! Chiswick Bridge is also a short walk away, which provides stunning views of the River Thames and central London is within easy reach.
