The ideal candidate will have a keen interest in surgery and be confident working sole charge. The practice has been recently refurbished, and they are working towards achieving Gold Cat Friendly Clinic status.

With a rich history dating back centuries, the village offers a charming blend of quaint cottages, historic landmarks, and welcoming community spirit.
