Pride Veterinary Centre is looking for a second veterinary ophthalmologist to help develop our rapidly expanding ophthalmology service. The candidate must hold or be eligible to sit the examination for a postgraduate diploma in ophthalmology and have experience of working in a specialist veterinary centre.

We are located in Derby, a city in the East Midlands region of England, which has excellent road, rail and airport access to all areas of the country, and is a short drive from the Peak District National Park.

Pride Veterinary Centre is a state-of-the-art small animal, multidisciplinary referral hospital that works in partnership with the University of Nottingham Veterinary School to provide undergraduate clinical training. The hospital offers purpose built facilities including a well-equipped dedicated ophthalmology surgical suite, an imaging suite with ultrasound, digital radiography, 1.5T MRI and 16 slice CT scanner.

Other referral disciplines include imaging, surgery, medicine, anaesthesia, cardiology, dermatology and neurology, supporting a comprehensive approach to all ophthalmic cases. 24 hour in-patient care is provided by a very competent team of nurses and night staff. Pride Veterinary centre is part of Scarsdale Veterinary Group, which comprises 7 small animal branch practices that contribute to the referral case load, as well as a farm practice and an equine hospital, giving an opportunity for some equine ophthalmology, if wanted.

Part-time or flexible working hours would be considered.

If you are dedicated, enthusiastic and a team player and you are looking for an opportunity such as this, please ring for an informal chat. Please contact John Turkington at or mobile +44 (0) 7971 278171. Please send formal applications in writing with current CV to Lynne Embley, HR Department at Scarsdalevets LLP, Pride Veterinary Centre, Riverside Road, Derby DE24 8HX or via email at
