The new operating model

At its core, our new operating model 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
