Rebecca Lang – MRCVS
I have been a full time vet at Pet Practice Milton Keynes for over 3 years, starting when the clinic had only been open for a year, and I have enjoyed every day. There are obviously highs and lows in every veterinary day but there were several factors that meant I went home at the end of the day smiling. Working with a great clinical and non-clinical team, lovely clients that have a great bond with the clinic and brilliant support from Ben Johnson, the practice owner, and the staff at the other Pet Practice veterinary clinics.
As Pet Practice is privately owned and controlled by Ben, he is at the end of the phone and listens to ideas and suggestions from the entire team; So my voice has always been heard and opinion valued. I never felt alone with fantastic RVNs and reception colleagues and other Pet Practice teams at the end of the phone. My reason for leaving Pet Practice in August 2021 was because my husband was offered a dream job opportunity in Germany, however I will be booking some holiday cover shifts in 2022.
The past 18 months particularly have been very hard for everyone and the veterinary industry as a whole is struggling. During it all I found the clients have been understanding and patient with changes we have had to implement. Ben has been very approachable and supportive of our concerns, well-being and work life balance. This clinic is a fantastic place to gain experience with the freedom of clinical decisions whilst having the support of an experienced team. I miss them and am happy to talk to anyone interested in applying for a role with Pet Practice.
