We like to offer a diverse working environment for all our team members, with the opportunity to do what you enjoy doing every day if you have a particular aspect of nursing that you are interested in we nurture that enthusiasm.
Our practice is a first opinion and referral hospital, we are proudly independent run by son, mother and father. We have a great team of staff that work towards the best possible outcome for the patient at costs that are accessible for most clients making us different to most referral centres. We have RCVS hospital status along with “OUTSTANDING” awards from the RCVS. We make a huge difference in the veterinary profession as there are not many places out there like us, just look at our reviews for example.
In the heart of the town centre, 10 minutes from the M6 motorway and a 2-minute walk from Wigan North Western train station and 30 minutes away from Manchester and Liverpool airports our location is key for customers and the team. Wigan has a great history and there are many attractions in the area whether you are a keen golfer or like to read in our local library, many restaurants and other attractions are a simple walk away from the practice for great convenience. Whatever your requirements, we will make you feel at home here and as you will be an extension to our family we will assist in most things to make you feel welcome.
We allow our nurses to experience every aspect of nursing practice, from working with inpatients, monitoring surgeries, assisting with the running of MRI/CTs, dealing with clients face to face via front desk and nurse consults to working on cases that you wouldn’t see in first opinion practice. We see cases as simple as routine neutering to neuro surgery and orthopaedics on a daily basis. If you are wanting the opportunity to expand on your knowledge and experience and implement what you already know and are passionate about within the veterinary industry then our practice is the ideal place for you to continue your career. We also like to invest in equipment and are open to suggestions if the team feel there would be a piece of equipment that would benefit the practice and our patient care, we are more than happy to listen and purchase.
