We are looking for an experienced Senior/Head Veterinary Surgeon to join our dedicated team at Dartford.

We are here to help you succeed 

We are an RCVS accredited, established practice with easy access to Dartford town centre and London (we are also located opposite a busy retail park so it’s great for lunches or a quick shop before or after work).

Our separate theatre is well equipped and provides a dedicated space for sterile procedures to be carried out.

We want to help you settle in therefore as standard, you will have a dedicated induction program where you are assigned with a work buddy/mentor. We offer a nice mixture of surgery and 15 minute consultations with time available to work up complex cases and we are in a great position where we can offer a higher volume of surgery time if this is an interest of yours.
