Being A Vet with Garston - Chris Mangham BSc (Hons) BVSc MRCVS

I graduated from Bristol University in 2007 and came straight to Garston Veterinary Group to join the farm team.

As a student, many of my colleagues had seen practice with Garston so I knew the high esteem with which the practice was held and what a great opportunity it provided as a new graduate.

The Practice surpassed my expectations and from day one it was a welcoming and unbelievably supportive place to work. All the members of staff pulled together to work as a cohesive team that helped to coax me through my first couple of years as a vet. I have learnt so much during my time at Garston, from routine fertility work with cattle to the care of the animals at Longleat Safari Park.

I have always been allowed to progress at my own pace but with the reassuring safety net of a supportive team behind me ready to help whenever I have needed it. The development of my career has been fully supported with enrolment to complete my certificate on the clinical side and ultimately becoming a Partner to further my skills in other areas of the business.

Garston Vets is a great place to work with no end of opportunities and support. I can’t wait to continue and further my career here.
