Veterinary Surgeon - Full Or Part Time - Halesowen Vets4Pets
Companion Care (Services) Ltd
Halesowen, United Kingdom
We are looking for full or part time experienced vets in our Vets4Pets Halesowen practice.
Halesowen is bordered by green belt with good access to the countryside. It is well connected being close to junction 3 on the M5 and 7 miles from Birmingham city centre.
We are a 3.5 vet practice with 2 RVN’s, 2 SVN’s, one ANA (due to become an SVN in September), 4 reception staff and a Practice Manager (RVN). The clinic sees a varied caseload with a high proportion of insured clients. We are exclusively small animals comprising approximately 45% dogs, 40% cats, 10% rabbits, 5% other small fluffies. Our days are scheduled with 15 minute consults with a catch up/break scheduled every 4-5 consults. Leaving on time is prioritised. Our last appointment time is 6:45. The clinic closes and phones are switched over at 7pm with 30mins of protected time after for calls/notes. There is also 15-30mins (depending on shift length) of time given in the middle of the day for calls, usually immediately post lunch which is a 1 hour break.
Passionate about high quality care, we have all the usual toys plus dental x-ray, laparoscopy, endoscopy, Kyon TPLO equipment and harmonic scalpel. Both JVP’s are highly experienced surgeons. One is a certificate holder, the other is in the final stages of completion. We aim to keep the majority of our caseload in house, but we are within 45 minutes of a quality referral hospital if needed. We would be keen to develop a candidate's own interests with certificates encouraged and funded.
