The Role

Alma Veterinary Hospital has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon, to join our team of dedicated vets and increase the services we offer to clients.

Our vets work a 4-day week FTE, there is a 1:6 weekend rota. On-call overnight is for inpatients in the Hospital. Vets Now are the OOHs provider and the phones go over to Vets Now at 7pm weekdays.  

This allows for the emergency calls during the night and any emergency cases to go to Vets Now but for Alma to keep any more stable inpatients in the clinic hospital where a nurse would follow the Vets care plan throughout the night. The nurse would only contact the vet should they have an urgent concern about an inpatient. If there was an inpatient that was deemed to require veterinary care throughout the night, a decision would be made to transfer to Vets Now. Alma has one nurse on site overnight and the emergency phones come over from Vets Now at 8am.
