Would you like to work with these people too?

We are an independent, progressive, small animal Cornish practice. We have 8.5 full time equivalent vets with an average experience of 13 years, 8 RVN's and 3 SVN's. 

We are looking for a full time vet to join our friendly and experienced team. We enjoy working with new/recent graduates and pride ourselves on providing a supportive environment in which to develop as a veterinary professional. 

Our main practice is in Liskeard and we also have branch surgeries in Looe and Torpoint, which run consultations only. You will spend time in the branch surgeries on an equal rota basis.

We have an extensive range of modern equipment including laparoscopy/endoscopy, ultrasound, digital x-ray (including dental), diathermy and cutting edge anaesthetic monitors. We also offer laparoscopic spays for which we are able to accept referrals from across Cornwall and Devon. We are also able to perform orthopaedic procedures such as TTA/TTAR's in house. 

The equally shared OOH rota is based on 1:9 with structured backup/support as necessary. You are not required to remain at the practice whilst you are on call, just attend calls and tend to inpatients. We offer compensatory time off in lieu for our out of hours duties. 

CPD is actively encouraged and a generous CPD allowance is provided. You will also receive 34 days annual holiday and 5 days CPD.

Salary package starting from £35400 increasing with experience.
