Are you our future colleague?

We are writing from Lime Trees Vets, an independent referral hospital in the heart of the Midlands. We pride ourselves on providing a superb level of care to our patients, clients and referring vets in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire. 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:

  • A dedicated imaging room for video endoscopy and ultrasonography
  • Equipment for laparoscopy, bronchoscopy, rhinoscopy, and cystoscopy
  • Idexx haematology, biochemistry and urine analysers, blood gases and coagulation
  • Visiting MRI and CT
  • On-site CT in the pipeline

Passing on our skills and knowledge is important to us, so Lime Trees Vets is a Partner Practice for the University of Surrey School of Veterinary Medicine. 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.

There are no OOH duties as VetsNow Stoke are based at our Meir Park hospital. We have a close relationship with the VetsNow team – which includes two certificate holders in Emergency and Critical Care, meaning our hospitalised patients get a high level of care and we can sleep at night.

This post is available as a part-time or full-time position, salary is generous with a substantial CPD budget, company pension and RCVS/VDS/BVA/BVSA/SAMSoc etc fees paid.
