At Southfields Veterinary Specialists we have now moved into our new purpose-built £16m veterinary referral hospital, and we’re looking for talented multi-disciplinary registered veterinary nurses to support our existing teams in providing exceptional care to our patients.

As a Southfields nurse, you will play an essential role in providing the very best care and treatment for our clients, to aid their recovery. As a registered veterinary nurse, you will have gained general practice experience and are now looking to develop specialist nursing skills.

Our promise and commitment is to provide the highest quality of care to every patient we treat. Our team of veterinary nurses are dedicated to caring for our patient’s day and night.

Our nursing team ensures that every animal within our care has a comfortable and seamless recovery, helping each patient adapt to their procedure’s effects and managing and monitoring their treatments.

The new hospital is designed to ensure our patients feel at ease, and will boast some of the finest facilities for our 14 multi-disciplinary services, including:

  • Innovative cancer treatment facilities
  • Full diagnostics suites

It goes without saying that you’ll be caring, compassionate and enthusiastic to support the highly experienced and dedicated veterinary Specialists.
