Job Details

Village Vet have a vacancy for a full time ECC / medicine veterinary surgeon to be based at our Hampstead hospital.

The Practice

Village Vet Hampstead is a 24-hour RCVS accredited small animal hospital which provides gold-standard care for its own patients as well as providing out of hours and emergency cover to over 30 first opinion clinics and a specialist referral clinic in the North London area. It is an amazing place to see a unique caseload surrounded by like-minded staff who want to provide the very best care.
We have a team of dedicated vets and nurses and allied support from our neighbouring referral arm; London Veterinary Specialists (located just across the square).

The Role

Our flagship hospital in North West London is looking for an individual with a particular interest in Internal Medicine and Emergency and Critical Care, seeking a complex and varied caseload. This role is unique in that there are no routine consultations or ops expected, instead you would be looking after hospitalised cases as part of a dedicated team with each day’s focus being on appropriate diagnostics, case management client communication and teamwork.
