Registered Veterinary Nurse - Out of hours - High Wycombe

Type: Small Animal

Location: High Wycombe

Practice: The hospital is operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and can offer the most advanced treatment options available for Orthopaedic, Neurology, Soft Tissue, Oncology, and Internal Medicine cases. There is a 1.5T high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerised tomography (CT) suite on-site, and the hospital has invested in the latest direct digital radiography systems (also known as radiographs or X-rays) (DR). They routinely use computerised gait analysis to aid in the diagnosis of complex multi-limb lameness and employ the same technology to monitor recovery from surgery, and has recently introduced a state-of-the-art HDU unit.

Role: They're looking for a Night Registered Veterinary Nurse to work part time hours.

However, they're flexible and open to discussing alternative arrangements.
