Clinical Nurse Leads

Our four clinical nurse leads are experienced senior members of our nursing team. They help coordinate the teams to ensure the hospital works as efficiently as possible while maximising patient care and welfare.

They also support, motivate and inspire the veterinary nurses and veterinary care assistants as line managers, helping them to pursue their own professional goals.

Prep Nurses

Our prep nurses first make sure that your animal friend feels at ease in the hospital environment before performing any necessary blood tests that the clinician has requested.

They help ensure patients have all of their investigations performed in an efficient and effective manner, and work closely with the clinicians and our team of interns.

Ward Nurses

Our dedicated team of ward nurses are responsible for providing round-the-clock care to every patient who is referred to us.

Throughout the day and night, our ward nurses tend to each patient’s individual needs, providing every aspect of nursing care required to support them during their recovery period.
