Practice Division

Our team within the Veterinary Practice Division will always be one of our most valuable assets and one that we aim to continue to develop.

The development of the team within the practices is a constant focus within the division from the day people join us. Our graduate training scheme is well known and highly respected in the Universities providing veterinary degrees. This scheme is designed to assist the newly qualified vet make the challenging transition from University to day-to-day practice. We have also developed a senior manager Aspirational Leadership Programme to develop the management and business abilities of our vets, practice managers and head nurses. The programme is now an established part of our training.

Clinical development will always be the core aspect of all of our training. All of our vets and nurses are provided with a wide range of training and development opportunities both through in-house expertise and external courses. We are also happy to sponsor further qualifications for vets such as a certificate or diploma in their particular field of interest.

As we grow its important that we continue to provide all of our practices with the support they need to allow them to focus on helping their clients. The practices are supported by a team of regional directors and local practice managers. Most of the regional managers are either vets or nurses with many years’ experience of operating in practice and in some instances have been owners of their own practice which they have sold to CVS. To help our farm and equine practices to continue to deliver excellence to their clients they are able to draw upon the support and knowledge of our Equine and Large Animal Directors who both have extensive experience in their chosen field.

CVS offers specialist veterinary referral services for companion animals in multiple locations around the UK.

A referral is typically made when access to specialist knowledge or advanced equipment (eg MRI or CT scanning, key-hole surgery) is required for diagnosis or treatment and at CVS we have the skills and expertise to fulfil these requirements.

Lumbry Park Veterinary Specialists, a new purpose-built Multi-Disciplinary Small Animal Referral Hospital in Alton, Hampshire will be opened in November 2015.
