Full-time SA vet required – permanent.
Would suit someone with some experience

Due to the success of our new branch and a valued colleague relocating to London, we require an experienced colleague to join our well-established friendly team of vets, nurses and support staff in beautiful rural Lancashire. We are an independent RCVS tier 2 accredited practice based in Garstang, situated on the edge of the Trough of Bowland (AONB), with easy access to the cities of Lancaster and Preston and less than an hour from Manchester, Liverpool and the Lake District.

We have 3 self-contained branches situated in Cottam near Preston, Lancaster and Poulton-Le-Fylde, all equipped with in house biochemistry/haematology, ultrasound and digital x-ray amongst other things.

We hold three outstanding standard RCVS awards in the areas of client care, teamwork and outpatient consulting and pride ourselves on our friendly, caring and supportive atmosphere making Lanes Vets such a great place to work and develop your career. The number of returning EMS students we have working for us is testament to this.

Our excellent clinical standards are achieved through case continuity, teamwork & communication and the use of evidence–based medicine. New graduates, as well as vets returning to practice after a break can benefit from tailored mentoring from our experienced vets to help settle in to the job and gain confidence quickly. We have in house certificate holders in dermatology, diagnostic imaging, small animal surgery and also a diplomate in ophthalmology as well as visiting specialists in dentistry and cardiology, all of whom are happy to give advice or take on a case as a referral.

Support is available also from the whole team via our clinical WhatsApp group, regular SA vet meetings and bimonthly clinical club (with chippy tea!). Personal, professional development is important to us as a practice and vets are encouraged to find their niche. Areas of special interest are amply funded with an additional CPD allowance available for those wishing to study for a relevant certificate.

The job is full-time consisting of a 4 day week with weekend/OOH work shared equally between 10 vets. We have dedicated night nurses who answer the telephone and triage OOH calls as well providing round the clock care for our inpatients who are all hospitalised at our main branch in Garstang.

Salary is 31k-£50k depending experience plus £1500k CPD allowance, 24 days holiday plus bank holidays and 5 days paid days for CPD.

This is a great job but please don’t take our word for it. Please give us a ring and have a chat with one of our current vets.
