Duties would include scrubbing into surgery, helping the medical team work up patients, care of hospital patients, client communication-updating owners and the discharge of patients. Some out of hours cover for nights and weekends on a rota will be required (there are night Vets and there would always be a Referral Clinician in support for out of hours cases). Performing advanced imaging-MRI and CT and the triage of emergency cases would also form part of the role. There would also be an excellent opportunity for primary case responsibility in our new Emergency and Critical Care centre. This is a full time position working 4 days per week, weekends on a 1:6 rota and 1 evening on call per week.

To be considered for this role you will need to have a RCVS Registration and previous small animal medical and routine surgical experience preferred, but not essential. Excellent communication skills supporting the Referral Clinicians and Veterinary Team and a team player who is dedicated to providing a high-quality service and care.
