Due to continued success, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a full time Referral Veterinary Surgeon to join us at our Glenfield Hospital. You will join a friendly and enthusiastic team of vets (including certificate holders) and nurses (including two surgical diploma holders), as part of a longstanding referral service, backed up by a dedicated first opinion team and our own on-site OOH service.
We are a training practice and work closely with local universities & training colleges. Our fantastic team is very supportive and we have plenty of opportunity for mentoring, if this is something you enjoy.
Based in our busy veterinary hospital in Glenfield, you will join two referral surgeons in driving the service forward in both Soft Tissue and Orthopaedic disciplines. As one of the referral surgeons, you will be expected to manage both an internal and external referral caseload, to aid/mentor other vets within the practice and to deliver external CPD to local referring practices.
We have all the usual kit including digital x-ray, ultrasound, a range of endoscopes, CT, ASIF and Synthes kits, TPLO/TTA/Tightrope, arthroscopy and Biomedtrix THR kits.
