Veterinary Nurses are a crucial part of our Practice, providing support to our vets. Veterinary nursing has come a long way in recent years and our nurses now carry out consultations of their own and some minor surgical proceedures. Our nurses in the darker green uniforms are all RCVS Registered Veterinary Nurses and our enrolled student nurses wear a striped uniform. We are a Veterinary Nurse Training Practice and many of our qualified staff started with us as animal care assistants. They are all managed by our Head RVN's.
