We have regular in-house Vet GDP and clinical governance meetings.

The Role

A mixed practitioner looking to experience all aspects of our busy and thriving two centre independent mixed practice.

We offer a salary package of between £35K - £60k, with genuine long term prospects in this independent practice.
