We are a 5–10-minute drive from the centre of Birmingham so there are excellent rail, road and flight links to the rest of the country and beyond. The main surgery is situated in a lively suburb with lots of bars, restaurants and shops a few minutes’ walk away.
We are an 8-vet practice with 7 veterinary nurses, 3 trainee VNs and 3 ACAs. We have a Certificate holder in Feline Medicine, and a vet studying for her Certificate in Surgery, certifications will be supported as developmental opportunities.
