We are working with an amazing practice in Barnsley that is looking to recruit a full-time Veterinary Surgeon on a permanent basis.

The Main centre is very comprehensively equipped, EG Ultrasound, Direct Digital Radiography, ECG, Video Endoscopy, Pulse Oximetry, a good range of Orthopaedic equipment, Hydrotherapy Etc. Etc.

They have recently expanded their Main Centre to 4 Op theatres with 2 further operating areas. Plus 4 rather than two consulting rooms. Two additional kennel rooms. They now have Hydrotherapy and also have an associate Physio. With possibly a grooming parlour in the near future.

The whole practice is air conditioned including branches, great for client and pet comfort. Even greater for staff comfort.
