A standard working day for the vets starts at 8.30am and finishes at 6.30pm with the majority of the team working four days a week with a fixed day off, however, if you have something else in mind, let us know.

There are different shift patterns, which are shared equally among the team:
*9am - 12pm consults then 2pm - 3pm / 4pm - 5.45pm
*9am - 12pm consults then 4pm - 5.45pm
*8.30am - 4pm in theatre (you dictate your breaks) then consult 4pm - 5.45pm.

There will be a share of 1:6 Saturday mornings which consists of consulting 9am - 12pm, if any inpatients require to be cared for over the weekend the vet is responsible for transferring these to our out of hours provider after consults, although this happens infrequently.

They have 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 9am - 11am or 2pm - 6pm consulting at their smaller branch. This is sole charge consulting only. Admin time is provided between consulting.

There are a team of 4 vets, who are supported by a couple of wonderful locums who are regulars so our permanent staff can take their annual leave allowing us 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.
