We are delighted to employ a team of medical students, who join us from local medical schools such as Imperial and King’s, to assist with medical transcription and other administrative duties on a sessional basis. This is an excellent opportunity for them to learn more about cardiology and medical administration in general, as well as giving them an insight into the world of private medicine. We very much value their presence within the practice and it gives us true pleasure to be able to contribute towards the education of the next generation of doctors.
If you are a medical student wishing to enquire about this position, please contact Victoria, the Practice Manager – firstname.lastname@example.org

Having long been in awe of the amazing work undertaken by the Canine Partners charity, we were particularly moved by their 2017 Christmas carol concert, where a number of people who have a canine partner spoke about the incomprehensible transformation the dogs have made to their lives following life-changing illness or injury.
These dogs are trained to be able to help out with every aspect of their partner’s life, from assisting with dressing and undressing, to retrieving cash and cards from ATMs.
After meeting some of the dogs and their partners, the practice pledged the funds required to take a puppy through all its training, support it throughout its working life and then look after it in its well-deserved retirement. We are delighted to have Patrick, our sponsee, as part of our extended team and we receive regular updates on his progress. At the time of writing (December 2019), Patrick has recently completed his training and been partnered; assuming that he settles well (which we have every confidence he will!) then he will officially graduate towards the end of 2020.

The practice has also made a significant donation to the Animal Health Trust‘s “Give a Dog a Genome” project. Since Dr Holdright’s first degree was in Genetics, this is a cause close to our hearts and we are delighted that research is being done to identify the genes which will hopefully lead to the eradication of painful and life-limiting conditions in dogs.
