Stowe Veterinary Group is seeking a Referral Coordinator to join its busy 24-hour veterinary practice group.

We are looking for a highly efficient, personable, and professional team member to join us in delivering exceptional care and communication to our clients, their pets, and the referring veterinary community.

You should have excellent communication and patient triage skills, with a good understanding of practice workflows and the importance of excellent client and patient care. You will be able to build strong relationships with our partner practices.

You will facilitate all appointments (including initial examinations, rechecks, nurse rechecks and procedures) and provide assistance during the transition of becoming a client/patient to one of our specialists.

You will act as the primary contact for clients who want to arrange an appointment with one of our clinical team as well as answering general questions regarding our services. An understanding of the referral process would be beneficial, as you will also act as the primary contact for referring clinics who wish to transfer a patient to our facility for further care.

  • Rabbit Awareness Week set to return this summer
    Blog SpotRabbit Awareness Week (RAW) is returning this summer, running from 24-28 June 2024. The theme for this year will be 'Healthy Diet, Happy Bunnies'.

    The focus on rabbits' diet comes after the most recent PDSA Animal Wellbeing (PAW) Report report revealed that 42 per cent of veterinary professionals identified inappropriate diet as one of the five most important rabbit welfare issues that need to be address.

    The campaign will include veterinary blogs, videos, and digital waiting room resources. Practices can sign up to receive updates about RAW.
