Type of Work: Small Animal Vet Surgeon

Job Details: Our client is looking for a vet to join theur fantastic team of 7 very experienced vets, who all have different specialities and areas of interest and all of whom enjoy discussing cases and sharing their knowledge and experience with their colleagues. 

The vets are supported by a great team of RVNs most of whom they have trained ourselves; they also have a dedicated reception team and a Practice Manager.

The practice is in a fantastic area, surrounded by the beautiful Hampshire countryside. They are also within easy reach of London and the coast. 

They have worked hard over the last year and a half to improve the work life balance of their team, they gave reduced their opening times to 9-6pm Monday to Saturday so their full time vets now work 4 days a week, with one full day off during the week and one in 3 Saturdays. Apart from a few vaccination appointments, there are no pre-bookable appointments on Saturdays (unless a vet requests this themselves) and they mainly see emergencies or patients that would benefit from being booked in on the day. Saturdays are worked with one other vet, two nurses and two receptionists.

There is no sole charge in their practice. 

They are a well-equipped, modern Practice with the usual toys including dental xray, AO-ASIF kit including air drill (we do most of their orthopaedics), ultrasound machine and multi parameter monitor.

In terms of how their days work: 
9-10am, admits and transfers from OOH (if any).
10-1pm, 15 min consults (30 min for complex cases and euthanasia)
1-3pm, check your in patients, lunch and admin work.
The operating Vet doesn’t have any appointments in the afternoon so usually manages to deal with the ops list but you are free to help between 1-3pm if you want to do your own stuff (ie, ultrasounds or minor procedures)
3-6pm, 15 min consults

You would have 1 operating day and 3 consult days per week.
