The practice is well equipped including an operating theatre, x-ray, ultrasound, and much more. The waiting areas and kennels are separated for cats and dogs, they also are a silver status cat-friendly clinic.

The team consists of 1 Vet, 1 Registered Veterinary Nurse, 1 Reception Manager, and a part-time Clinical Assistant.

They are looking for a Clinical Director who can share their enthusiasm for excellence in general practice, be dedicated to client education and support colleagues.
