Started doing locum shifts and is now working as a district vet

Richard White, District Vet

I started doing some locum shifts for Vets Now and then I applied for the role of senior vet surgeon in the Middlesbrough clinic. It was great that from day one I could make my own decisions and manage my own team. For the past six years I’ve been working as a district vet, with even more responsibility for the clinics in my area but still maintaining a good degree of hands-on clinical work.
