Veterinary Surgeon Position

Hart Vets has 10 full-time  and 3 part-time vets over two sites supported by 15 VN’s. The Bicester site was awarded RCVS veterinary hospital status in 2009. Both sites have digital radiography, Pentax video endoscopy and high quality diagnostic ultrasound ; Philips IU22 with 5 probes at Bicester and GE Logiq at Waddesdon. We plan to get a further Philips IE33 unit for Bicester to enhance the cardiac capabilities of our system while sharing probes.  We have Ligasure vessel sealers at both sites which revolutionise many procedures and are in daily use as we resterilise with ethylene oxide. We are envisaging that the Bicester surgery will be relocated to its new purpose-built hospital in 2018 which will provide new facilities including a CT suite. We operate our own night service with dedicated night nurses providing true 24 hour in-patient care. Located in Oxfordshire, close to Oxford and the Cotswolds and 44 minutes by train to London.


New graduate post


We operate a system of two junior colleagues working a different rota in order to have a high level of experienced support with no sole charge. The rota is weekends on alternating with four day weekends off. Surgical support is provided to the required level to help develop skills in the critical first year.  There is a 10 day structured CPD course through the year using the XL vets course.


Experienced vet position


This role is to replace a previous team member who has gone to do a surgical residency. Applicants need to have some good quality small animal experience. An interest or further qualification in diagnostic imaging  in light of our developments in this area would be an advantage but is not essential by any means. The weekends rota is 1 in 6.5 with the occasional Saturday morning surgery at Waddesdon. CPD is considered essential and we have a number of vets working  towards further qualifications.
