We are always looking for vets, veterinary nurses and support team members who are interested in the vision and ethos of our practice and in joining our team.
We are a progressive, ethical, independent SA practice, set in the thriving village of Liphook in East Hampshire, just a couple of miles from where the owner, Phill, grew up.
Graduating in 1993, he has many years of varied veterinary experience, progressing from mixed practice, via a Masters in Wild Animal Health, into zoo and conservation work in China and SE Asia.
Having returned to the UK, Phill decided to set up his own practice, primarily to enjoy providing first class veterinary care to companion animals, but also as a platform to engage others in wider environmental goals. Our doors opened in April 2015.
Our independent practice: A place to thrive
The building had been empty for a decade and had become dilapidated, with a lonely house-martin nesting in the eaves as the only resident, but this meant we had a blank canvas.
The bespoke design ensures a comfortable workspace, with a/c and fresh air ventilation throughout, internal windows to maximise natural light (no prep room dungeon) and a layout that optimises workflow from consultation rooms and wards to prep and theatre.
ISFM accreditation was a priority from the start and with separate cat and dog wards and waiting rooms, we were the firstpractice locally to be awarded Silver ‘Cat-Friendly Practice’ status. We are also officially ‘Rabbit Friendly’ (Silver, RWAF) and BBVA ‘Bee Friendly’ (no bee experience required). Our dogs love coming here too! We work with Hart Wildlife Rescue to achieve the best outcomes for wildlife casualties, which are afforded the same level of treatment as our pet patients.
Our patients and our team always come first but, as members of the scientific community, trusted by the public, we believe our obligations extend beyond the practice door. We use a green energy supplier and actively work to reduce our consumption of resources and waste, and have committed to achieving ‘net zero’ before 2030 as part of the UN ‘Race to Zero’ initiative.
As the saying goes ‘first do no harm’ – but we’d not be much of a vet if that was all we could manage for our patients, and so it is with our planet. At a time of true ecological crisis, we have so much more to do than ‘no harm’. So, beyond minimising the negative, we intend to make a genuinely positive impact, funding habitat regeneration, promoting biodiversity, and bringing team members and clients along for the ride.
As a truly independent practice, we have complete freedom, to use our imaginations, stretch our ambitions and make a difference. We could achieve so much more with your help.
