EMS placements are normally 1 to 2 weeks. However we are happy to offer longer placements if required.

Clinical procedures will vary according to our patients needs. However there will be plenty of opportunities to perform a variety of procedures.

Yes, our employer’s liability insurance covers all staff, apprentices and work experience students.

You will need to get to/from us at the beginning/end of the day. However a vet or nurse will be responsible for getting you to and from our other branches and other working locations.

When you arrive to us for the first time, we will discuss your level of experience and aspirations for what you are hoping to achieve during your placement. This gives us the best chance to ensure that you have the correct opportunities during your time with us.
