Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what the team have to say about life at Priory

“I have worked at Priory Vets since 2005, firstly at the Driffield branch and later in a senior role, at the Bridlington hospital. After a brief change of job, I returned to Bridlington in 2021. 

At Priory Vets, the friendly experienced team of nursing and reception staff and the lovely clients and their pets make a great working atmosphere. On the clinical side the practice has a good mix of medical (including inpatient facilities) and surgical cases and up to date equipment allows work up of cases with case continuity.” Clare, Senior Vet

I have worked at Priory for nearly five years both as a student nurse and as a registered veterinary nurse. Priory is a great place to work, everyone goes above and beyond in their role and there are always opportunities to progress and develop your skills with no end of support to enable you to do this. If things are a bit difficult or you are having problems whether professional or personal your colleagues (who quickly become like family) are always supportive and there is always someone to talk to and steps are always put in place to help you. I look forward to continuing my career at Priory. Laura, RVN
