The practice itself consists of 3 branch surgeries, all located within 30minutes of each other on the southwest coast of England. You will be based in the main branch which was purpose built to provide the best possible facilities for staff, patients and clients, with a spacious waiting area and two large, air-conditioned consult rooms. As well as operating theatres, specific dental area, radiography suite, intensive care area, isolation area and separate cat and dog wards.
