Veterinary Surgeon

Veterinary Surgeon Croydon, Greater London Medivet Croydon Full Time, Permanent

About us

We work as a unit – as one team. In each region there’s a network of practices working together, with a 24-hour hospital at their centre. We call this our hub-and-spoke model, and it’s unique to us.

It allows our vets to get support with cases, refer their patients and share expertise and equipment between practices.

This model is enabling us to grow a strong and supportive community of vets who between them have a wide range of specialisms and equipment, and who can diagnose and treat pets whenever they need us. The depth and breadth of knowledge across our business is astounding, and it allows us to provide our clients with exceptional care.
