Patient Care Assistant in Faversham
Understaffed and overworked
Always understaffed and clients expect too much as do management. Due to understaffing patient safety is at risk. Mental health under strain all the time
Regional HR Advisor in Yorkshire
Extremely passionate and hardworking people
8 months into the role and it's crackers - in a good way. Started in between lockdowns, experiencing a new way of working in a new industry, and I've got the most supportive line manager. Every person I have met so far has been so incredibly passionate about our patients and achieving gold standards at all of our clinics. The biggest challenge has been giving our leaders the confidence to deal with humans! Giving support to the individuals that need it and not standing individuals who put our patient's care at risk.

An exciting time to be part of a progressive company
We share the same trials and tribulations as our colleagues and peers across the entire veterinary sector, especially over the past year which has been a trying time for all. However what is particularly inspiring about being part of Medivet is being part of a positive movement and a company actively identifying some of the difficulties being faced in the veterinary sector. These include addressing mental health and wellbeing of employees and focusing on this area as a priority and creating a positive culture. Medivet is also working towards better people development and career opportunities across the board, especially for veterinary nurses.Do we always get it right, no, but with a focus on creating a better culture throughout I feel we are going in the right direction. Clinic staff are so dedicated and work tirelessly to do the best job for their clients and pets, supporting them to do this is the best part of my job. As with any management position many aspects of my day to day job can be stressful but ultimately being able to make and see positive changes in the people and clinics I work with is very rewarding.
Regional Director in Wales
Great Company to work for
I have recently finished a maternity cover temporary role as a regional director. I have to say the amount of support and training I received was exceptional. Being one of the most difficult times as COVID hit just as I started I was so fortunate to have the support and wealth of knowledge from the clinical operations team. The patients and clinical staff are always the main priority of the company and they work hard to try and support as much as possible in these uncertain times.I learnt so much from my role and felt I grew so much from being given this great opportunity.
Regional Director in Prefer not to say
The new inexperienced clinical operations senior management team regularly make confusing decisions. They treat their team as assets with little personal engagement. You work way beyond your contracted hours trying to keep the branches functioning as there has been little support from support centre, but then only cherry picked negative events are used as performance management that often have no basis. The right type of support is not given from the clinical operations senior management team.Agree with previous review; Company has an internal culture of hypocrisy and bias that encourages employees to leave.The company values of Progressive, Caring, Trustworthy and Exceptional are not practiced. Progressive management style scorned, micromanagement is still stuck culturally.
