Veterinary Nursing Placements


We are an RCVS Approved Training Practice which offers students the clinical training and work experience essential to qualification as a veterinary nurse.  Unfortunately we do not have any spaces for student RVN's at this time.


Vet Students


Our busy mixed practice can offer veterinary students invaluable and essential experience.  We aim to provide EMS which allows students to gain a true representation of work as a farm/mixed vet and to have the chance to develop skills suitable for your level of the course.  For further information, or to register an interest please contact Heather the Practice Manager on 01776 703131 or by email
