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.

The start of another week

And today we are inspired by a local food company Yummy

They deliver local produce to local communities

Onswitch HQ is based in Lincolnshire and we have seen this grow over the last year

The change in shopping habits,driven by covid, has been significant

The new ways to shop and buy goods and services has been profound and for many will be their “New Normal”

So as we enter the beginning of the end of covid lockdowns ( fingers crossed) now is the time to take stock of what is now normal and everyday in our veterinary world

What have owners learnt to do?
What have practices learnt to do?
What is now normal, that was rare pre covid?
What will stay post lockdown ?

All of these questions will drive systems and organisational changes, both for teams and clients

Examples such as pre pay and upfront payment for services that are now much more common

Subscription services for home delivered meds and food now so many options for clients

Drop off care Appointments with remote communications eg apps, web-chat and video consulting, again all embraced by clients

The role of the whole team in caring for clients , home working ,outbound calls and communications

The list goes on ....

So what will you keep from the last 12 months?
What new things have you done that have made a difference?

Have a great week
