Head Veterinary Nurse - Full Time - Halifax
3 weeks ago
Halifax, West Yorkshire, United KingdomIn line with our ambitions and growing case load we are looking for all suitably qualified and experienced candidates to apply for our new role of Head Nurse.
This is a full-time position (40hrs/week) and will combine the responsibilities of heading up our nursing team and helping to co-ordinate our rapidly growing referral caseload.
We were established in 2002 at one of the very first Vets4Pets practices. Originally conceived as a first opinion practice, in the last couple of years we have been focusing on building our referral caseload. Our facilities are well-progressed within a refurbishment programme which has enabled us to maintain our first opinion work while at the same time expanding our capacity to accept referral cases.
Our head vet and practice owner, Patrick operates a mobile surgery service throughout the north of England and 2 years ago was joined by our second referral surgeon James. Between them they operate our orthopaedic and soft tissue referral services. In addition to our referral surgeons, we also have a balanced and experienced first opinion team which allows us to offer a wide and varied range of services to our many clients. Examples of the orthopaedic cases we undertake include fracture repair, arthrodesis, cruciate surgery, arthroscopy, restorative therapy and joint replacement. Our referral soft tissue cases include axial pattern flaps, TECA/BO, tumour reconstruction, tie-backs and BOAS. We regularly hospitalise our more complex and critical care patients where they receive constant on-site monitoring while our more regular OOH service needs are met by external providers.
Our brand new team member will have the ability to work well within our existing highly efficient team and help build upon our sound base of clinical excellence as we progress.
