Salary: Competitive, Depending on Experience. 

Package: Fantastic range of benefits available. 

Type of Work: Veterinary Nurse

Job Details: This is an exciting opportunity for a Qualified and RCVS Registered Nurse. This is the perfect role for someone with a positive attitude and enthusiasm to learn with a surgical/anaesthesia interest. This doesn’t mean you must have existing advanced anaesthesia knowledge, but you must be keen to learn about it. The majority of the nursing team have come from general first opinion practice backgrounds and the practice offers full training and support in any areas that you are unfamiliar with. The successful applicant will be a great team player and willing to help out where required if asked. The nursing team are trained in all aspects of hospital work, this includes use of advanced anaesthesia techniques (full supported training is provided). The surgery load is predominantly Ophthalmology based but the team is also involved a mixture of first opinion small animal surgery and surgery referral services for Laparoscopy, Endoscopy, soft tissue and some orthopaedics. Further facilities include CT, ultrasound, digital radiography and dental radiography and Endoscopy suite along with a visiting referral Cardiology service.

The team at the hospital work fantastically well and are also very welcoming to new members. They pride themselves in having made adjustments to the nursing rota to try and encourage "down-time" where possible, so their weekend cover is split so you either cover a Saturday (when the practice is only open on a Saturday morning then it is inpatient cover) or a Friday/Sunday (which is just inpatient care) The first opinion out of hours is located to an external Emergency service which means the nursing teams do no do out of hours phone answering. The practice consists of 6 permanent on site vets with visiting referral cardiology and dental teams plus a visiting physiotherapist. The nursing team consists of seven qualified RVN’s, one student and one ANA.
