We are working with a fantastic, independent practice in Ludlow who require a veterinary surgeon to join their wonderful team on a permanent basis.  

The Practice: 

This practice has two well equipped branches, with digital X-ray, ultrasound, in-house labs, and much more. At their main site in Ludlow they have comfortable hospital wards to provide full day patient facilities. The nurses look after inpatients during the day providing them with everything required to help speed up recovery: medicating, washing, exercising or providing physiotherapy along with plenty of love and care. The practice’s current team consists of 6 brilliant vets supported by a team of excellent nurses and support staff. 

The Role: 

This is a full-time permanent position, although the practice may also consider part time hours. The role involves working 4 days per week between 8:30am and 6pm. There is a weekend on call rota of 1 in 5, working in practice on Saturday mornings and staying on call for the remainder of the weekend. There is also a requirement to work approximately 10 Saturday mornings a year at the branch practice. There is one night on call per week 

The practice sees a wide variety of cases, and the vets are encouraged to work up their own cases to a high standard, very rarely these are referred out. The practice benefits from a visiting orthopaedic vet to deal with complex cases. 

In return the practice can offer a competitive salary, RCVS fees, CPD allowance and 5 weeks holiday.
