You will cover OOH for surrounding practices so have a steady case load. Consults at weekends will primarily be for sick animals only and emergencies, with minimal routine work.

You will be supported by the client care team and weekend nursing teams, with support from the referral team if you need to refer over the weekend.

This is a unique way of working supporting a great work/life balance, perfect for fly in fly out vets or someone looking to increase their ECC experience.

They have a talented and enthusiastic, experienced team of veterinary surgeons supported by an exceptional team of Registered Veterinary Nurses, Student Veterinary Nurses, Veterinary Care Assistants and Client Care Advisors.
