Veterinary Surgeon - Farnham, Surrey
Working at the hospital and sometime a branch, we are looking for a vet with good clinical experience and great communication skills. We want you to develop your own interests and will fully support this in benefiting the practice as a whole.

We are the longest established vets in Farnham and one of the first hospitals in the country. We have a great happy team priding ourselves on a superb working environment. Our commitment to be the best in the area is reflected in our excellent client service, investment in equipment and importantly in people. We work closely with one of the busiest Vets Now in the country which works out of our hospital; offering experience of critical care management on a regular basis adds to the enjoyment of the days’ work. As a member of the Linnaeus group we have access to excellent investment not only in material for the practice but in people too. Aligned with excellent referral hospitals around the country and time off given to follow interests, personal development is a priority.
Farnham is a lovely market town within easy reach of the North and South Downs and good communication links.
You will be working at the hospital for the majority of the time, although time will be spent at our consulting branch. This will involve consultations periods, inpatient (day only) responsibility and surgical time, with strong encouragement to fully follow up your cases while developing and maintaining your own client relationships. Supporting the visiting Surrey University vet students will be part of the role; and being a mentor to this new generation is extremely rewarding.
