Experienced Small Animal Veterinary Surgeon - Hampshire - Ref RL10276
Our clients are currently looking for an Experienced Vet to join their friendly team in Hampshire. You will join a fantastic team of 7 very experienced vets, who all have different specialities and areas of interest and all of whom enjoy discussing cases and sharing their knowledge and experience with their colleagues.
They have worked hard over the last year and a half to improve the work life balance of the team, they reduced opening times to 9-6pm Monday to Saturday so the full time vets now work 4 days a week, with one full day off during the week and one in 3 Saturdays. Apart from a few vaccination appointments, there are no pre-bookable appointments on Saturdays (unless a vet requests this themselves) and they mainly see emergencies or patients that would benefit from being booked in on the day. Saturdays are worked with one other vet, two nurses and two receptionists.
There is no sole charge in the practice. This is a well-equipped, modern Practice with the usual toys including dental xray, AO-ASIF kit including air drill (they do most of their orthopaedics), ultrasound machine and multi parameter monitor.
In terms of how the days work:
9-10am, admits and transfers from OOH (if any).
10-1pm, 15 min consults (30 min for complex cases and euthanasia)
1-3pm, check your in patients, lunch and admin work.
The operating Vet doesn’t have any appointments in the afternoon so usually manages to deal with the ops list but you are free to help between 1-3pm if you want to do your own stuff (ie, ultrasounds or minor procedures)
3-6pm, 15 min consults
You would have 1 operating day and 3 consult days per week.
They have 18 “book on day” appointments every day; this works very well as it stops them from being fully booked at the beginning of the day and allows sufficient appointments for those cases that really need to be seen.
Finally, kindness is key in the practice; they are a very close multi-cultural team that respect each other. There is no pre-established hierarchy so whoever joins the team must be a team player and kind to those they work with.
