At NWVS we have a large and highly qualified nursing team that work tirelessly to provide our patients with the best possible levels of care. With gold standard treatment in mind, our nurses work within their chosen discipline enabling them to become highly specialised and to understand the detailed needs of patients under their care. Our aim as nurses is also to extend our support and knowledge to owners, guiding them through the treatment process as we nurse their pets back to health.

Our service-specific nurses support the patient’s journey through the hospital from admission to discharge, ensuring effective treatment and comfort at all times. They play the role of nurse, anaesthetist, imaging technician, sterile surgical support and radiographer to name just a few and their contribution is vital to the level of care that we provide.

As a specialist referral hospital we encourage our colleagues to take on new challenges within their role and develop clinically through advanced qualifications and practical skills. We also have a dedicated Clinical Trainer who develops a personal development plan for each nurse ranging from induction to advanced nursing skills that are a requirement within the hospital to facilitate our 24 hour advanced nursing care..
