In total there are over 40 people working at the practice, the majority of which are nurses who have been with us for many years and contribute a wealth of experience. They also have a number of certificate holders in small animal medicine and an advanced practitioner. The team work very collaboratively together and have a big support network to lean on especially during busy times.

They are ideally looking for an orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeon - this is the first tier of referral surgeons so basic experience is only required although AVP would be preferred. The standard shift pattern is 8.30-6.30 but they can be flexible for the right candidate to some extent and will consider part time applicants. The practice is big and modern (only 10 years old) which means if the right person came in and was ambitious enough, they have all the opportunity to create a full blown specialist department with multiple surgeons working under them. They have just purchased a brand new CT scanner and have an array of modern equipment for you to work with. One of the sites will be turning into a feline only site by the end of September 2021. The practice has strong connections to Surrey University, where they assist with experience, teaching and also work alongside Harper and Keele University - again another opportunity to teach people coming through the ranks.

The practice core principles are; excellent patient care, team harmony and providing an excellent client experience.
