New Bristol-based veterinary hospital is recruiting

Recruitment has started to staff Bristol Vet Specialists, a new veterinary referral hospital which will act as a centre of excellence for small animal care in the South West

Bristol Vet Specialists (BVS) is opening applications from specialist vets, referral nurses and veterinary surgeons looking to complete a rotating internship.

Positions in BVS’ front of house client concierge and admin teams are also available to help deliver a best in class customer experience for patients, their owners and the vets who refer them to the hospital.  

The site will employ over 100 highly skilled professionals and will be led by a large team of nationally and internationally-renowned specialist veterinary surgeons, supported by residents, interns and registered veterinary nurses.

Bristol Vet Specialists will facilitate the development of new and emerging treatments, and will offer pioneering treatment to animals who are in need of specialist care.

It will operate as a flagship regional hub for CVS Group across the South West, Midlands and Wales.

Based at Central Park in Avonmouth, the site will offer the latest technology and treatments in all disciplines including general surgery, orthopaedics, neurology and neurosurgery, internal medicine, ophthalmology, cardiology, dermatology, oncology and dentistry, as well as dedicated anaesthesia, analgesia, diagnostic imaging and intensive care departments.

The centre is currently being custom-built, with the inclusion of diagnostic tools, such as MRI and CT scanners.

It will also be fitted with a linear accelerator which offers advanced image-guided radiation treatments, such as for example intensity-modulated or stereotactic radiation therapy.[i]

Delphine Holopherne-Doran, clinical director at Bristol Vet Specialists, said: “We are excited to open up positions for veterinary professionals to come and work with us.

“With a leading team, we hope that Bristol Vet Specialists will become a centre of excellence in the veterinary world, providing the best animal care to pet owners across the South West and becoming a leader in Europe for the treatment of cancer in small animals.”

Bristol Vet Specialists will open in the Spring of 2023.

It is an upgraded specialist referral facility for CVS in Bristol, building on the success of the current site on Wells Road which had reached capacity and had limited scope for expanding specialist services.
