Doctors Beck and Stone is seeking vets for our Discovery Bay hospitals in Hong Kong.

Discovery Bay is located in Lantau Island which is in the southern part of the Hong Kong territory. It is a resort area designed for those who prefer to stay away from the hustle and bustle but also has a speedy connection with the outside world via a 30 min ferry to the famous Hong Kong Island. There is also access via bus, taxi and metro.

Discovery Bay has a tight family orientated community with around 20,000 people of which 80% are expatriates. Island Vet Services and Doctor Beck & Stone North Plaza are the only Veterinary Clinics in the neighbourhood and as such the vets become local personalities.

" We have a fantastic team - receptionists who are conscientious with taking bookings, a nurse assisting in every consultation, and a team of doctors who work together and discuss cases. We are fortunate to have a lengthy consultation time of 30 minutes, which allows us plenty of time to discuss cases with owners to allow them to make informed decisions. Having plenty of time to converse with clients allows has allowed me to build strong relationships within the community and rapidly build a dedicated client base.

Working in Hong Kong provides ample opportunity to learn about a wide range of diseases, and working at Doctors Beck and Stone is fantastic. I am able to provide a very high standard of care to our patients in a friendly and varied environment, resulting in a high level of job satisfaction whilst achieving a good work-life balance.” - Dr Nick Smith, Island Vet Services.

Both Discovery Bay clinics have dental and surgical facilities, digital x-ray and ultrasound. The 2 locations work as a team with 3 vets on the rota sharing the weekend work.

The nursing team includes Philippines vets alongside bi-lingual nurse/ translators, and the clinics are served by an ambulance.

SINGAPORE - SMALL ANIMALS New Graduates welcome

Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

Support includes an experienced Team (so flexibility is important), and modern facilities and a high level of equipment.

From the doctors’ viewpoint, if you are able to operate with at least a little independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, being equipped well for imaging in radiology, ultrasound, and endoscopy; surgery in soft tissue and orthopaedics; dermatology; ophthalmology; and TCVM; and supports and encourages high level internal medicine. Additionally, it supports continuing education in whatever relevant field you choose, with flexible leave and financial support packages and equipment purchasing. You can potentially grow faster here than at a large referral practice. You do not need to be an expert to begin.

Remuneration is better than competitive, and Singapore is similar in many ways to London or Sydney – a big, fast, air-conditioned, well fed, english-speaking city.

If you believe you may be a candidate and are interested in our position, please contact us ( / +65 91465265) and we’ll help you decide.
