The practice is well equipped and have recently invested heavily in a new Ultrasound scanner. The owner of the business is very accommodating, and if you wish to have new equipment in the practice he will happily fund the investment if that is what you need/are interested in. 

This is a mixed practice and the owner is on the road a lot, carrying out large animal calls and doing the OOH rota - A lot of the role will involve sole charge this is why the practice owner is keen to support you with a good package and with new equipment that may interest you, as he doesn't want you to feel a lack of support which is fantastic. They will be there to help with diagnosis and help with morning clinics etc - The right person to this practice is invaluable at the moment so they are more than happy to support you in any way. This is a very genuine opportunity and there are excellent and exciting long term goals to be obtained here.
