Vets

CPD

At least £2,000 annually is available for vets CPD requirements. Additionally, up to five paid days leave is offered for attending courses.

Certificate courses encouraged.

For all CPD involving travel in the UK, reasonably priced accommodation and fares will be reimbursed.

Private Medical Insurance

Our vets are entitled to receive eligible private medical treatment quickly and with the minimum of disruption to day to day routines. Our Bupa private medical health plan offers peace of mind avoiding NHS queues and allows you to receive eligible private medical treatment quickly. The cover is for individuals but vets can register their families at discounted rates.

Membership Allowance Scheme

We are keen that our vets interact as much as possible with colleagues across the profession and have access to online CPD and educational journals. We recognise the value of membership of key organisations such as BSAVA, BVA and SPVS and £300 is available annually for their subscriptions.

Our vets are covered by the practices membership of the Veterinary Defence Society (VDS) for claims involving allegations of negligence.

Medical Cash Back Plan

Our vets can be reimbursed, up to policy limits, for day to day health treatments. Cash sums are paid to help with the cost of personal health needs involving consultations, diagnostic tests, prescription costs, dental treatments, optical costs, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic and chiropody.

Increasing Holiday Entitlement

Holiday entitlement rises to five weeks after two years and to six weeks after four years.
