Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon

Stoke sub Hamdon and Creech St Michael

We are looking for an experienced vet (or vets) to add to our existing small animal team at our practice in beautiful Somerset. We work between two branches, our main surgery is in Stoke-Sub-Hamdon and our branch surgery is in Creech St Michael. Both have good transport links being close to the M5 and the A303. The position(s) can be adapted to suit your needs in both main location and hours; to fit around your life outside work. There will be some sole charge, you will need to be confident in both routine and emergency work. We are in the process of transferring our OOH work to an OOH provider so there will be no on-call. We will maintain care of our inpatients on a case by case basis, those with more intensive needs can be transferred for ongoing night care. The weekend and night rota for inpatient care will be 1:4. This rota will include a Saturday morning surgery and attention to inpatients as required. We often have no inpatients so, many weekends and evenings will be work free. We are close enough for a weekend getaway to the beaches of Cornwall or the rugged moorland of Dartmoor in Devon. Our nursing team is made up of 4 RVN's and 2 SVN's. There is always a nurse available to help with inpatients. The role will be a mixture of consulting and surgery, any interests you have will be supported and we would fully encourage a certificate in your chosen area. Consults are 15 minutes, the last of the day booked 45 minutes before we close at 6.30pm, we are rarely late leaving. Holiday is 20 days pro rata + bank holidays.
