Barton Lodge Veterinary Centre has an exciting opportunity available for two Veterinary Surgeons to join our dedicated team, either on a Full Time or a Part Time basis. We pride ourselves on providing an excellent service to our clients and their pets and take care of a varied caseload.
You will have access to a varied case load with the opportunity to work cases up, with the support of experienced colleagues if required, ensuring that our high quality of client care is maintained. Our working pattern allows a good mix of consulting and surgical time. We can also provide you with the opportunity to pursue any specific interests.
We work a 40 hour week (Monday – Saturday), opening between 8 am and 1 pm on Saturdays. We are very fortunate for being a Vets Now host practice. This means that all our in-patients are well cared for in our own premisses by the Vets Now staff every night, as well as during the weekends and bank holidays, and therefore you will not need to worry about doing any OOH work.
Barton Lodge is a long established, 4.5 vet, small animal practice situated in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. We are a short walking distance from the town centre that offers a variety of facilities close at hand, and also close to a lovely park for relaxation. Hemel Hempstead is only 30 minutes away by train from London, and 15 minutes from Luton airport.
We are a single site practice and all our rooms are air-conditioned. We have access to several good referral centres although a lot of complex cases are managed at the clinic, including orthopaedics. Our up to date facilities include a dedicated operating theatre, 3 consulting rooms, large prep area, separate dog/cat wards, imaging/ dental area with digital X-ray facilities (standard and dental), MyLab 25 Gold E-SAOTE ultrasound scanner, extensive in-house lab, ECG and tonometer.
Our friendly team is made up of 4.5 Veterinary Surgeons, 6 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 1 Student Veterinary Nurse, 3 Receptionists and 2 Office Staff. CPD is encouraged and well supported with an excellent CPD budget and additional staff benefits. We are a very friendly, close and inclusive team that like to promote a supportive culture and discuss cases when necessary. We are very supportive of CPDs if you want to focus on a particular area of care.
