Imagine a Practice where your team are happy, highly engaged and delivering excellent animal care, resulting in delighted clients and high profits.

At Gateway HR, we want to help you make that dream a reality, so throughout the month of  January 2023, we contacted hundreds of Independent Veterinary Practices across the UK to fully understand the challenges you face when managing and developing your people.

The results highlighted a number of common themes but 2 areas really stood out.

  1. You are finding the recruitment of staff a real challenge

  2. You have noticed a decline in the mental health of practice staff (yours included!)
