We are on the lookout for an Advanced Practitioner/Certificate Holder in Small Animal Medicine to work alongside Hywel Parry (Advanced Practitioner in SAM), Horatio Marchis (Advanced Practitioner in SAS), five first opinion vets, 14 RVNs, 1 SVN, 2 VCAs, a large client care team and Jordanne Turley who is our dedicated Referral Manager.

We have excellent modern facilities here at Meir Park which include:

  • Idexx haematology, biochemistry and urine analysers, blood gases and coagulation

We host final year students as part of their rotations, and those of us interested in education are trained to be their clinical instruction mentors. We also hold monthly small group clinical discussion meetings for referring clinicians.

Meir Park is located just off the A50 on the outskirts of Stoke-on-Trent, an ideal location with both city life and idyllic countryside just a stone’s throw away, and linking easily to the M6 or M1. Many of our team live in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands.
