The Role
We are looking for an ambitious veterinary surgeon to join our team in Tyne & Wear, to support the continued growth of the practice. Both full and part-time applicants will be considered. You will be working both as part of our hospital team and at one of our branch surgeries - a full time role would include 2 days at the hospital and 2 days at a branch per week. Hospital duties can include inpatient care, medical investigations and surgery, with plenty of time to work up cases and develop your skills, and support from our certificate-holders in medicine and surgery.

Our 2 branch surgeries work closely with the hospital and both have operating, dental and laboratory facilities.
