We have a team of 9 veterinary surgeons (7 part-time) and 9 RVN's plus 2 trainees with a supportive reception and administration team. Advanced qualifications are encouraged and funded; we want all our employees to maximise their potential. RVN studies recently funded include anaesthesia and medical nursing.
