Experienced SA Vet to join large independent team in Northumberland


Richard Powell
Our successful independent client in Hexham are looking for an experienced small animal vet to join their brilliant team of 5 small animal vets and superb supporting team of RVNs, VNAs, receptionists and admin staff.

Their newly refurbished, 24-hour-staffed, hospital-style centre offers the opportunity to enjoy a mix of consulting, medicine, surgery and dentistry. You will be able to work up and treat your own cases with in-house lab, radiography, dental radiography, endoscopy and a superb new ultrasound scanner. They have a branch surgery in Tow Law which enjoys a uniquely friendly and traditional style of practice but with modern in-house surgical facilities and easy access to Hexham for referrals.

Applications will be considered from both full or part-time candidates but you must be willing to take a share of the OOH rota.

The team look after their own out of hours, with the support team handling the calls, reception, consults, theatre and wards – all you have to do is turn up and be the vet who saves the day – it’s incredibly rewarding and an invaluable exposure to exciting emergency care.

And if large animals interest you, but only from a distance, you can see the equine team in action next door and the farm team down the path - watching but without the responsibility!

Located in a beautiful part of the world the practice has Hadrian’s Wall, the River Tyne, the North Pennines AONB and the Northumberland National Park on its doorstep, plus Newcastle is just 25 minutes away with its renowned restaurants, theatres and nightlife as well as an East Coast main line railway station and airport.

The team also run an international training company, CPD Active, and so if being involved in professional and personal development interests you then you’ll be welcome to get involved in that too with UK and Europe based courses.
