The Practice

Their main site is close to the centre of Oxford and is an easy to walk into town, the branch surgery is in one of the nearby villages.

There is plenty of culture, music, sport, cuisine (when things are open), with easy access to London and main transport routes.

The practice deals with a mixture of clients, from charity to gold standard insurance. Flexibility is required, they try to match treatment options to client’s desires and pockets.

They excel on getting to know their clients well and they trust us. They work up in house where possible, but have good referral practices around when required (for advice or treatment).

All the usual diagnostic and monitoring devices present.

They also have a visiting exotics vet, so no reptile panics, but do see quite a few small furry friends.

Varied caseload in friendly and supportive team with encouragement and support where required.


  • RCVS & VDS fees paid
  • Health Shield
  • Workplace pension
  • CPD funded

They work a four-day week in a well-equipped, forward thinking practice with a great team of qualified nurses and appreciative clients.

This is a chance to be involved in a growing independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you trained to do
