Clinical Director - Southampton


Julie Powell
Our client is a successful Small Animal practice in Southampton who are now looking for a Clinical Director to lead the team.

The clinic has two sites close to each other, they are well equipped with ultrasound, digital radiography, digital dental radiography, endoscopy and Idexx laboratory machines (Catalyst and Procyte).

Day to day duties involve acting in the role of clinical lead, consulting and operating and handling clinical complaints. Ideally you will have a good understanding of financial aspects of running a veterinary clinic including but not limited to profit and loss, budgets and stock. The role ideally would be five days per week but four days would be considered. Hours are between 08:30 and 19:00. There are no weekend or out of hours requirements with this role.

The best thing about clinics is not the equipment, it is the team. There is a three to one support to surgeon ratio, the nursing team consists of predominantly RVNs and one SVN per site. There are 6 FTE veterinary surgeons and 10 FTE nurse across the two sites. There are 4 FTE receptionists. The team of surgeons range from three years qualified to 36 years and all are excellent all round clinicians. An experienced veterinary surgeon is required with management experience and knowledge of veterinary finance being highly desirable. RCVS membership and right to work in the UK is essential.
