A brand new innovative look and operating model Opening early 2023.
We’re looking for ambitious clinicians with entrepreneurial spirit to take on the running of a brand new innovative practice in Beckenham. We’re keen to talk with anyone who wants to consider Practice ownership, or if ownership isn’t for you, we’re happy to discuss an employed role of Clinical Director.
It’s not just the look of the practice that’s different. Our brand new operating model “Pathfinder” utilises advances in technology, practice design and colleague structure to enhance the pet, client and colleague experience to create the future of our practices and their profitability.
With a brand new opening, we can tailor the practice to compliment your clinical interests and long term plans.

The new operating model
At its core, Pathfinder is about utilising advances in technology, practice design and colleague structure to enhance the pet, client, and colleague experience to create the future of our practices.
- Enabling operational efficiencies by allowing for more clients to be seen per consulting vet (whilst avoiding a ‘conveyor belt’ approach) and allowing time to write up notes, conduct clinical investigations, and ensuring a good work-life balance
- Colleagues focusing on what they are qualified to do and enjoy the most.
- Clients getting a gold-standard service.
- Pets getting the treatment they deserve.
- Efficiencies allowing more clients to be seen per vet.
- A strong business performance as a result.
Why are we doing it?
We would like to address the vet retention and recruitment crisis by making our practices the best choice for vets. We want people to want to work with us and see no other way of working.
- It provides a career opportunity for PHAs – Creating a career path within the practice
- We want to reduce the ‘Front and back’ Mentality that some practices experience
- Allow Clinical Colleagues to do more of what they enjoy
- Better communication throughout the practice
- Improved service, communication, and engagement with clients in meeting the needs of their pets
Take a look inside....
Beckenham doesn't really feel like part of London, with its leafy suburban streets and village atmosphere. But this suburb, straddling town and countryside, is a part of the capital - and it takes under half an hour to reach Central London.
Thanks to its attractive high street and handsome period buildings, Beckenham is the kind of area that is unequivocally viewed as A Nice Place. It's no surprise, therefore, that it was recently voted as one of the best commuter towns for families.
Well connected? Great connections, great choice. There are three stations (Beckenham Junction, Beckenham Hill, New Beckenham), plus a tram to Croydon. It sits within Zone 4
Schools Primaries: Worsley Bridge, St Mary's Catholic, Clare House and Balgowan are all "good", says Ofsted. Secondaries: the Harris Academy Bromley and the Harris Academy Beckenham are both "good"; also the Bishop Challoner and Kings independents.
What to do Beckenham Place Park, the area’s biggest green space, has just received a £4.9 million Heritage Lottery Fund restoration that sees a new café and education centre, 15,000 trees planted and a lake for wild swimming.
Retail… The centre has a smashing selection of independent cafes, bars, shops and restaurants.
Where to buy If you are after space but still commutable into London, Beckenham's a great option. There's a bit of everything, with Victorian and Edwardian detached, semi-detached and terrace houses; Twenties and Thirties detached houses and semis, and modern flats mainly near the town centre. It's much more affordable than in most London equivalents.
