Working as an emergency vet surgeon will expose you to a diverse range of cases that you simply won’t see in general practice. Although confidence with sole charge is a must, Vets Now have a strong support network, in and out of clinic, and there’s always somewhere to seek advice. In Bradford, you will be fully supported by an expert nursing team and coached by our district vet who will oversee your professional and career development.

From accredited ECC certification support to clinical research studies we will support you in taking control of your own career development. The Bradford veterinary team are motivated by driving clinical excellence and providing exceptional pet care at a time when it’s needed most. The team welcomes approximately 3500 cases per year (mixture of private and PDSA) which allows the opportunity to investigate diverse problems with full array of laboratory equipment and diagnostic imaging.

This includes hosting an annual awards ceremony for those who have exceeded expectations. Clinical staff are also encouraged to attend our annual ECC Congress, the largest in the UK, which features an array of internationally accredited speakers, delegates and exhibitors.
