Job Details

Mercer and Hughes Veterinary Surgeons are looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to come and join our independent RCVS accredited hospital as an 'on call' night vet in the lovey market town of Saffron Walden, on the edge of the Essex/Cambridge countryside.

We manage our own OOH for our registered clients, and have an amazing dedicated night nurse team. You can choose to either stay on site in between calls, or take the on-call phone home with you and come in as required, but you would need to be based within 30 minutes of the surgery.

Hours would be between 6pm and 8am. You would be responsible for managing any cases admitted during our late afternoon and evening surgery, overseeing the inpatients, handovers between day and night teams, and dealing with any emergencies throughout the night with the support of the night nurse team.

We are very flexible with the rota; 7 on 7 off, or 7 on 14 off, or weekends only, whatever works best for you.

Our hospital is equipped with digital X-Ray, ultrasound, in-house IDEXX lab, EPOC machine, separate theatre and dental, and separate cat and dog wards, so you should find everything you need to hand. And if you need to refer, we have the RVC, QVSH, and DWR close by.

There is a bedroom available for overnight staff use, plus a bathroom with bath/shower, two kitchen areas and a staff sitting room. Parking is available on site and the market town and Tesco's are a 5 minute walk away.

Pay is dependent on experience, and we offer a support package including 4 weeks holiday plus bank holiday allowance, increasing with length of service to a maximum of 5 weeks, CPD allowance, great staff discounts and the option to participate in our Private Medical Insurance scheme.

Any questions? Feel free to give us a call or pop us an email, and ask for Rebecca Kitchen.


Our well equipped surgeries contain the latest diagnostic equipment including digital x-ray facilities, ultrasound, ECG and endoscopy.

We have our own in house laboratories that allows us to get many results the same day! We have a large team of dedicated veterinary nurses who run daily nurse clinics where they can give general advice and carry out procedures such as microchipping, nail clipping and weight checks.

We have a brand new puppy pre-school to give advice to new owners and help with puppy education and socialisation.

We have close links with the veterinary colleges and referral services in the area, to allow more specialist treatment for your pet.

We also provide specialist treatment with complementary medicine.

We are a RCVS Tier 2 Small Animal Accredited Practice and a training and assessment practice (TP) for veterinary nurses.
