About The Mobile Vet Limited
We are blessed with lovely clients, and a lovely team. We focus on quality of care rather than quantity - 15 minute consults, a CT scanner, laparoscopic surgery, video endoscopy and loads of support from a very experienced team. We have 7 vets, 5 RVNs and several support staff plus a practice manager. We view our practice as happy, relaxed and welcoming. We all love what we do and feel privileged to be trusted with the care of the Islanders' pets. Our team cares, listens and supports each other working together to help provide the very best of customer care, understanding that we are all emotive beings that need each other’s love and support.
Our staff are integral in helping us continue to strive to be the best for our clients and patients and we focus on a good work:life balance, championing both mental and physical health; whilst maintaining awareness of the importance of family commitments to staff with children, hence early finishes and ample time off.
The Island offers easy access to London by train. Beautiful coastal scenery, walking, cycling, surfing, sailing, etc. We support local charities and take our wider responsibilities seriously.
About the Team and Culture
The team is a friendly bunch, hoping to form lasting and genuine partnerships with all clients and pets. We endeavour to approach every conversation with openness, warmth and honesty. Doing the right thing is fundamentally important to us – we work hard to keep our training and development up to date and we invest in the best equipment including the building of a brand new surgery which should begin very soon. We always push the boundaries and ensure we are thinking about new ideas to challenge the current status quo in the veterinary industry. We strive to be leaders and not followers and take pride in being different from the rest so we can continue to provide the very best of care for our patients.
