Fitzpatrick Referrals Halfway Lane, EashingGodalmingSurreyGU7 2QQGB

Fitzpatrick Referrals is looking for a dedicated and compassionate registered veterinary nurse with a passion for client care and communication to join our team as an admit and discharge RVN.

As the admit and discharge RVN, your main responsibility will be to coordinate the flow of patients both in and out of the hospital whilst supporting the patient and the client throughout the patient journey. You will work closely with the nursing team, clinicians, reception team, veterinary interns and other colleagues to meet the needs of patients. The role will also involve communicating with clients to provide patient updates, assisting reception with booking appointments and supporting clinicians with answering client queries.

Previous experience in a referral setting is not required but your ability to be forward-thinking, show empathy and demonstrate exemplary teamwork and communication skills is essential. This role is ideal for a nurse who loves interacting with clients and has the required skills to coordinate and communicate effectively with both clients and colleagues.

We have a 12-week induction training scheme where all new nurses are trained by a nursing mentor. Ongoing support is provided via quarterly one-to-one meetings and a yearly appraisal. The nursing structure and encouragement for extra learning and CPD allows nurses to grow and develop their career in different directions. Regular lectures are held internally so you can share and develop your knowledge.

This is a full-time role, working a 40-hour week, on a rotating shift pattern alongside a 1 in 4 weekend rota. You will also be required to work as part of a bank holiday rota. Additionally, we would welcome candidates looking for part-time hours.

We offer RCVS registration, funded CPD, a company pension scheme, life assurance and an employee assistance programme.

We also offer referral nursing experience days for qualified RVNs to come and spend the day with us and find out what it is like to work in a busy, specialist referral practice. If this is something you would be interested in, please get in touch with us.

Early applications are welcome and we reserve the right to close for applications before the closing date.
