Here at Bath Vet Referrals, we are looking for a Referral Surgeon to join our small friendly team on a part-time basis.
The role includes responsibility for managing surgical cases to a referral standard, and for communicating with clients and referring vets. Referral clinicians are expected to perform their own diagnostic imaging (radiography and CT) with the support of colleagues and remote specialist interpretation. Ultrasound and MRI imaging is performed by our medical team. CT training will be provided.
You will be working 2 or 3 days per week, between 19 to 28.5 hrs per week. The weekend and weekday night on-call rota is shared equally between referral clinicians, currently 1 in 7.
