We are the Royal Veterinary College’s workplace teaching hospital in Bedford.  We operate as a successful, busy, first opinion practice with students observing how the practice functions.  Whilst we are owned by the RVC we operate as an independent practice, giving us the best of both worlds.  We accommodate a variety of experience levels from new graduates through vets looking to go to the next level clinically to senior leadership positions.  We have excellent facilities, exciting caseload and offer support for undertaking certificates.
