This client is a long- established family run business. All of their four branches have their own X-ray, operating theatres and diagnostic equipment, with use of Robovet computer system.

Ideally, the candidate will be a clinical coach or will have the desire to become one, in order to be a vital part of the practice's trainee nurse development.
