About the Job

Vets Now Manchester

Referral Clinician – Internal Medicine

We are looking for an enthusiastic residency trained internal medicine clinician/board eligible candidate to build the internal medicine service at our Vets Now Manchester Referral Hospital. We currently see a wide array of patients including high numbers of IMHA, acute kidney disease, ureteral obstruction, cholangiohepatopathy, portosystemic shunting, acute gastroenteritis, diabetes mellitus and lower airway disease. There is no on-call or weekend work in this position.

This role will encourage your development into any specific area of medicine you hold interest in. With our OOH service we see a high number of acute medical cases that could be internally transferred for longer term management if acute medicine were an area of interest. Alternatively, our ECC team will happily continue management of these cases, leaving internal medicine available to work with more chronic conditions.

Be part of an exceptional team

You would be supported by specialists in Emergency and Critical Care and surgery, as well as several advanced practice certificate holders in ECC, surgery, internal medicine, imaging and cardiology. We also have rotating and discipline specific interns. The hospital is fully equipped with an ICU, separate canine, feline and isolation wards, a CT scanner, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, endoscopy, bronchoscopy, mechanical ventilation and (coming soon) a cell salvage device.

Vets Now has a strong clinical culture and a focus on the delivery of the highest clinical and professional standards to our patients, clients and professional colleagues. We have 58 emergency clinics and three 24/7 hospitals in the UK. As well as providing outstanding clinical care, our specialists are involved with our evidence-based research group and have the opportunity to make a difference within the wider business and the profession.

Your benefits and rewards

Our employees are our greatest asset which is why we offer a first-class benefits and rewards package that includes:

  • 7 weeks pro rata annual leave
  • Your birthday as a paid day off
  • Private medical insurance
  • £5000 CPD allowance plus 80 paid hours pro rata
  • UK Standard Pension contributions – 5% Employee/3% Employer
  • Professional membership fees
  • Up to 50% discounted staff pet care
  • Death in service of two times annual salary
