Permanent Veterinary Surgeon - Lincolnshire

Type: Small Animal

Location: Boston, Lincolnshire

Practice Type: Part of a group

Facilities: The practice has a spacious, well-equipped hospital and four satellite branches. The hospital has recently been extended and is well equipped with top-class imaging (digital x-ray, CT scanner, ultrasound, video endoscope including laparoscopic kit), a wide range of surgical and orthopaedic equipment, four sterile theatres, dental x-ray, ECG, tonopen and slit lamp, Class 4 laser, extensive lab, spacious dog and cat kennels and a large isolation area. Each branch has biochem, haematology, UA, and microscope, and a sterile theatre, with imaging available at some. 

Team: The friendly, experienced, and supportive team are committed to offering high standards of clinical care. Within the team of 15 vets they have colleagues who have completed or are studying towards further qualifications in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, internal medicine, dermatology, and ophthalmology.

Role: There is a large and varied caseload of both medical and surgical cases. Duties are split between consulting and operating. There is a high orthopaedic caseload throughout the practice, and there would be room for other surgeons to develop their skills in this area. Equally an interest in imaging would be encouraged. 

Hours: People are at the heart of everything that they do, that’s why they know that work-life balance is vital in supporting people to be their best selves. Their flexible approach to rota patterns and working hours offers a balance that truly flexes with you and your lifestyle no matter what stage you are in your career.

They cover their own OOH work with a separate night team, and weekends are a 1:4 either Saturday or Sunday 9 am-4 pm
