Medivet Clapham is situated in Abbeville Village in the heart of Clapham, South London.
Clapham is a lovely practice which is fast-paced and provides a similar environment to that of a mini-hospital - great if you like keeping nice and busy!
The team is made up of three Vets - two of which have over ten years of experience with certificate holders in Cardiology and Endosurgery. The nursing team is made up of the HRVN (that's you!) RVN, Student Nurse, and two Client Care Assistants.
This branch performs a high volume of procedures including endoscopy, cardiac scans, and lap spays, equipped with endoscopes, ultrasound, laparoscopic stack system for keyhole surgery, full in-house lab, ethylene oxide sterilisation, and digital x-ray.
Not familiar with the area? The practice is situated about 10 mins walk from both Clapham Common and Clapham South. There are also several nearby bus routes.
