The Practice

The George Veterinary Hospital is a progressive, non-corporate Veterinary Hospital boasting high clinical standards with 24hour patient care delivered by their own vets and nurses.

With the recent acquisition of another building on the High Street in Malmesbury, there will be opportunities for the Hospital to expand its services even further over the coming 12 months.

The practice has great retention, and many members of staff have been there many years. Many RVN’s have started as VCA’s, then progressed through to SVN’s and then remained as RVN’s. Many members of staff have left and then returned. They are proudly independent but a large group with 4 departments consisting of the small animal hospital, Pig, Equine and Farm.

Number of employees:

Vets: 17 (small animal),          RVN’s: 13,       SVN’s: 3,         ACA’s: 3,            Receptionist’s 14

Based in the beautiful Cotswolds, with countryside on their doorstep, but close to a mainline station. This giving easy access to London and its airports.

This is a great chance to be involved in an independent practice surrounded by a motivated supportive team helping you to do the work you are trained to do.
