About the Team and Culture
We have a great team consisting of 8 vets, 11 RVNs, 4 students, 2 VCA s and 14 support staff. We are a friendly, supportive, and efficient team but don`t just take our word for it below is a direct quote from a locum who worked with us recently:

My locum placement starts at the newly refurbished and extended clinic in Bingley where I meet Terry Croud, a towering, but very kind and gentle man, who, as one realizes very fast, is adored, and worshipped by many pet owners in the region and beyond. He is without doubt one of the dying breeds of what can be called a “Veterinary Personality” and once again I find myself re-assured about my resolve of stepping away from my own clinic 2 years ago to hit the road: without this decision I would never have had the opportunity of working together in a team with this great man.

Although the new facilities are admittedly impressive, with new stainless-steel cages and the smell of fresh paint still in the air, the real revelation for me is the nursing team. When I entered the surgical department on Monday morning, the white board was packed with cases, and I realized with some unease that I was also expected to do a full block of consultations in the afternoon.

However, I shouldn`t have worried: Chantelle the head nurse and her team had it all covered. patients were admitted, checked, pre-medicated and prepared for surgery in a smooth-running operation and the same applied to their aftercare and in most cases for the pricing up and for the writing of notes. There was an excellent flow of communication and because of this, the thought put into cases was impressive, but at no point at the cost of the level of care for the patients` hold regular team building events including annual treasure hunts and weekends away alongside Christmas parties and congress opportunities...
