Branch

Our Littlemoor branch on the edge of Weymouth is a very short distance from the beautiful Jurassic Coast, Purbecks, and New Forest National Park. Weymouth, Dorchester, Poole and Bournemouth are short journeys away and offer a wealth of shopping, entertainment and socialising opportunites.

The Littlemoor branch is linked to the Wool branch under the leadership of branch partner Andy Buchan, a surgery certificate holder. You will have the opportunity to develop the client base at Littlemoor and become the face of the clinic, following your own caseloads but with the support of experienced vets at the Wool branch. You will be able to operate and work up your cases at Wool too.

A contribution to the weekend rota at Dorchester 24 allows you further experience and access to emergency caseloads for your own clinical interest and development.
