We often meet up for drinks on the weekends and out Christmas parties are always a hit with the team. You’ll always have access to a dedicated mental health first aider on shift. We ensure that there are adequate breaks throughout the day to work up your caseload.

We have 4 fully equipped rooms for general consults, prep room and separate theatre, separate cat and dog wards and a separate waiting area for feline patients.
