In our team, we currently have 4 RVNs and 2 Veterinary Surgeons, with a graduate starting in September. One of our Veterinary Surgeons has a clinical interest in exotics, and the other is upskilling in imaging, so there’s definitely no shortage of interesting cases coming through our doors! We pride ourselves on the training and support we offer to students and we’re delighted to say previous students have joined us on a permanent basis once qualified. We’re constantly working on new initiatives to support skill gaps and we make sure CPD is continuous and happening across all levels in our surgery.
