Full-time rota is a 40-hour (4-day) week, with 1 in 3 Saturdays and 1 in 6 weekends. There is no on call. However, there is an inpatient rota, where the vet provides back-up to the nurse on evening checks. Any patient that requires constant monitoring is transported to their OOH provider. Time off in-lieu is available following working the weekend or open for discussion as part of a salary package. Start times are 9am to 7pm weekdays. 9am to 4pm Saturdays and 10am to 4pm Sundays. The role consists of a mix of both consulting and surgery.
