Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon, Lancashire
Due to the success of our new branch, we require an additional SA Vet to be part of the Lanes Vets Family.
We are an independent mixed practice based in the town of Garstang. Situated south of Lancaster, on the edge of the Trough of Bowland, we are only 30 minutes from the Lake District and one hour from both Manchester and Liverpool.
Our team are everything to us and everybody matters! Our health and well-being team ensure all sensible suggestions to make our work-life better are considered.
All our branches are fully equipped to a very high standard and new toy requests are rarely refused. We are committed to providing exceptional care for our patients and clients and our dedicated night nurse team provide inpatient care for our hospitalised patients. Work-life balance is a priority so our civilised 1:15 on call rota comes with additional time off for weekend work and all OOH call are triaged by our qualified night staff. An hour’s lunch break is the norm not a rarity, as is finishing on time.
Basically, what we are trying to say is that Lanes Vets is the "dog's cajones" (and Lord knows we've removed enough!
Enough about us, what about the job?
We are looking for a team player who wants to enjoy all aspects of medicine, surgery, and emergency work in a high quality, first - opinion setting. Advice and support are available from in-house certificate holders and visiting specialists with opportunities to develop your own passion. Regular Clinical Club meetings (with chippy tea) and SA vet meetings offer chance for us to meet and share our experience and knowledge with the team.
