We are looking for a part time veterinary surgeon with some experience behind them to replace a retiring colleague. There are no OOH duties with this role. Weekend rota is a 1 in 4 Saturday morning only. Sole charge with RVN support. Weekday shifts would be a minimum of 2 full days (20 hours) but total hours are negotiable. There would be a pro-rata share of operating time and the remainder being consults. We have 15 min appointments with time allocated for catch-up/phone calls and last appointment 45mins before end of paid shift.

We have a brand new full IDEXX lab suite in-house, digital x-ray (no dental x-ray yet but planned) and ultrasound machine. We make good use of our RVN's knowledge and skills and are expanding our nurse clinics.
