Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Holt

Type: Small Animal

Location: Holt

Practice Type: Part of group

Facilities: Well-equipped surgery with the usual range of diagnostic equipment including a dedicated imaging room. They have separate wards for cats and dogs to ensure minimal stress for pets staying with them. For large dogs, they have several large ‘walk-in’ kennels so all pets can be comfortable whilst staying with them.

Team: They are a team of 4 vets, who are supported by a couple of wonderful locums who are regulars so the permanent staff can take their annual leave allowing them to work at a sensible pace. If you have an interest in a particular veterinary area, they will endeavour to ensure you are given the support and funding to pursue those interests. They are always happy to share their knowledge and expertise. The nursing team consists of 7 RVNs, 2 SVNs and 2 ANAs, all of whom are dedicated to patient care and work to support the vets including undertaking consultations. They benefit from RVNs with special interests in canine and feline behaviour/medicine, ECC and breeding. 

Role: The practice has outsourced out of hours however alongside the nursing team there is some inpatient cover Monday to Friday. The diary is a mixture of operating and consulting time at the main branch in Holt with a couple of half days between 9 am – 11 am or 2 pm – 6 pm consulting at the smaller branch in sunny Wells-next-the-sea. This is sole charge consulting only. Admin time is provided between consulting, however, if additional is needed they will always work to accommodate the vets’ needs.

Hours:  A standard working day for the vets start at 8.30 am and finishes at 6.30 pm with the majority of the team working four days a week with a fixed day off, however, if you have something else in mind, you can discuss this with them. The beautiful Norfolk countryside and coast are on the doorstep and want you to be able to enjoy it!
