In many ways we are a traditional mixed practice and we have a friendly work environment. The majority of our vets have been with us since they were at school and we have a very good level of staff retention.
We work hard as a team to provide the best care we can to our patients and help each other. We have a group of young vets currently who do socialise with each other and provide a lot of support for each other.
There are 28 vets, all with varying degrees of experience and interests. This provides a lot of support and means we can all learn off each other.
We are a genuinely friendly group of people and like to think we have a relaxed but productive work environment.
We have a very varied case load and a lot of equipment. All our branches have on site surgical facilities, x-ray and ultrasound.
Our main hospital also has 24 hour staff, 6 consulting rooms, 2 dog wards, 1 cat ward, isolation ward, CT scanner, visiting MRI, 5 surgical theatres, dental suite, exotics ward and an intensive care ward.
We also have a dedicated rehab centre that is vet led, and offer a visiting dermatologist and visiting ultrasound experts for difficult cases.
We are very unlikely to have a situation where our facilities are the reason we have to refer.
Currently this equates to 1 in 10 on call
Currently we have a mixture of vets working 2 up to 4 and a half days a week. Saturdays and on call remain
