A standard working day for their vets starts at 8:30am and finishes at 6:30pm with the majority of their team working four days a week with a fixed day off.

They have different shift patterns, which are shared equally among the team:

  • 9am – 12pm consults then 2pm – 3pm / 4pm – 5:45pm

  • 9am – 12pm consults then 4pm – 5:45pm]

  • 8:30am – 4pm in theatre (you dictate your breaks) then consult 4pm – 5:45pm.

There will be a share of 1:6 Saturday mornings which consists of consulting 9am – 12pm, if any inpatients require to be cared for over the weekend the vet is responsible for transferring these to their out of hours provider after consults, although this happens infrequently.

They have outsourced out of hours however alongside the nursing team there is some inpatient cover Monday to Friday. This is sole charge consulting only. Admin time is provided between consulting.

About them:

At the Practice they have a personal and friendly approach to animal care, being a part of the community since the 1960’s. Their vets have a range of experience from 3 years up to 25 post qualification. They consider themselves to have a well-equipped surgery with the usual range of diagnostic equipment including dedicated imaging room.

They are a team of 4 vets, who are supported by a couple of wonderful locums who are regulars so their permanent staff can take their annual leave allowing them to work at a sensible pace. Their nursing team consists of 7 RVNs, 2 SVNs and 2 ANAs, all of whom are dedicated to patient care and work to support the vets including undertaking consultations.
