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.

So part of what we do every month is evaluating locations for new practices

Been doing a lot of these recently as more and more folks look at the possibility of “Opening their own practice”

When we look at a location we assess how many target audience households there are eg pet or horse owners or demand for certain farm services

And it’s usual to find there are plenty of practices serving that audience already , so any new site will need to be able to differentiate themselves or have a point of difference and a “compelling reason to change “ for the local community

So this mornings site evaluation was a surprise

For the first time, in a long time, we have a location that is underserved by practices

Eg a true gap in the market

Highly unusual
Very odd
And on closer digging the reason became clear

3 local practices in the drive time analysis have closed …. For good

So as we work with our post covid situation it’s intriguing to watch sites closing for good and where others are opening up and doing great in the same area

So fascinating times indeed

@OnswitchLtd Nor cake, which seems to be a lot of adverts' compensation of choice....

@OnswitchLtd 10 to a penny?!!! Not how you describe any future colleague. #Bedrock #respect. FYI - cake is no longer an exciting treat - most of us provide it as standard

When you see the quote:
“ you can’t get vet nurses for love nor money” maybe thats where folks have been going wrong?
It’s a job, career, a responsible role so PAY money don’t expect it done for love
It’s not about cakes & puppies
