The Barn Animal Hospital is a purpose-built, small, busy Tier 3 animal hospital on the edge of Lychpit, in Paynes Meadow, Basingstoke.

Due to continued growth, we are looking for a Veterinary Surgeon to join us on a full time basis. We are looking for a 5+ years qualified Vet, ideally with (or studying towards) a certificate. We have a strong surgical team currently and would potentially benefit from a medical bias candidate, but this isn’t essential.

Our out of hours is provided by local Vets Now clinics, we have facilities for hospitalisation and overnight care of inpatients and generally have between 4-7 per night. A nurse is in the building overnight caring for in patients and vets share the overnight duties equally. The overnight duties are generally for telephone support for the duty nurse and it is very rare that we are called into the practice overnight.

The hours will be 48 over a 4 day week with a 1.5/6 weekend rota. The shifts consist of either 8am-5.30pm or 10am-8pm which are distributed evenly amongst the vets. The subsequent week following a weekend is a 3 day week. Weekend hours are 8am-5pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm Sunday with phones to vets now outside of these hours, and responsibility for in patients only outside of those times.
