Opening Your Own Vet Practice

Quarterly remote interactive workshops provide valuable support, information and practical tools for anyone looking to open their own practice.

Opening Your Own Veterinary Practice

Whilst more and more practices are joining corporate groups, opening a successful independent practice remains a fulfilling and realistic aspiration for vets today. Of course, opening a vet clinic is hard work, but with focus, detailed advance planning and by following robust and proven processes, profitability after just a few months of operation is entirely feasible. This opening a vet clinic workshop will show you how to achieve your dreams of practice ownership, without the whole process becoming a financial and logistical nightmare.

Opening a New Veterinary Practice – The Tricks Of The Trade

Quarterly ‘opening your own veterinary practice’ practical workshops are delivered remotely, giving attendees a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills to enable you to get off on the right foot in your new practice. We’ll explore the importance of marketing to potential clients in the catchment area with targeted brand messages six months out; as well as establishing key steps to take each month, up to and after launch. Delegates also build vital management competencies for the early months of trading, such as team coaching, developing the customer experience and measuring team and business performance.

 

Understanding your target market and tailoring your service accordingly is crucial prior to opening a new vet practice, and we’ll look at how you can collect data on a wide range of key parameters such as:

  • Catchment demographics
  • Likely client numbers
  • Strengths and weaknesses of existing competitors
  • Physical and commercial barriers and opportunities

 

When opening a new veterinary practice it’s also important to consider your own unique selling points and branding – how is your approach different to other practices already available? How does it feel to be a client of your vet clinic? Very few areas of the UK are under-provided for in terms of veterinary practices, so if you are to recruit and retain the 1,000 active clients per Full Time Equivalent vet required in order to maintain a sustainable business, the reality is that you will need to switch clients from elsewhere. And attracting new clients is much easier when you have obvious practice values and your ethos is visible in every aspect of the customer experience your team provide – this opening a new veterinary practice workshop will show you how to establish and communicate your unique brand messages clearly and consistently to potential clients in the area.

Dragons Den feedback for the Nottingham #FutureColleagues

There are always key themes and this year they were as follows:

1. It’s all about the #OneVetTeam it’s not all about vets! The TEAM is RVN, Customer Care, managers and vets

2. There has to be a match between the work load and the team to do it ! Need the people to do the work. More people are needed so you don’t burn folks out

3. Have a focus. Have a purpose. Why would folks choose you? What is the compelling reason to change to you ?

3. You cannot build a business with a plan to reduce your client numbers over time ! Attrition happens people and patients die, move away, and change vets - so you need NEW ones to keep the data live and sustainable

4. It’s all about capacity How many folks are you actually seeing an hour per vet? If you want to do 30 minute appointment you have to charge more than a 12 minute one

5. People choose a practice because it is
1. Local
2. Recommended by friends & family
3. Recommended by Key opinion leaders
4. Convenient eg accessible
5. ... cost

So that’s the feedback to the Den today 👍

Fab folks
Great day
