Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Bolton

Our client looking for an experienced Veterinary Surgeon to further expand their team of dedicated vets and help increase the services they offer to clients.

Role: Permanent Veterinary Surgeon

Type: Small Animal

Location: Bolton, Lancashire

Practice: Small Animal

Team: Experienced team of 3 vets but are expanding to 4. They have 5 RVNs and a dedicated receptionist team.       

We have no specialists but there are many locals and we refer cases when appropriate. Many of our staff have been with them for many years.

Facilities: Excellent facilities including an in-house lab, a very good ultrasound machine with colour doppler, digital radiography, etc. 


  • Open to full and part-time applications

  • When working each vet has a nurse partner so they work as a team.

Sole Charge: No

Applicant Requirements: They are looking for someone who will continue making the practice a pleasant working environment and this is just as important to them as clinical skills.
