Our Reception and Practice Management Team

The reception team are responsible for managing most of our incoming phone calls, and for following up with our hospitalised patients after discharge. They’re invaluable in managing our appointment scheduling, taking medication orders for all species, and of course, managing the daily hustle and bustle of each practice’s reception.

The administration team also keep our clinics running smoothly, by handling all our human resource management needs, compliance, accounts, payroll, rostering and inventory activities.
