Practice Support Managers (PSMs)

Setting up a new veterinary business is tough, particularly when the prospective new business owner is trying to organise everything while still in full time employment.

Our Practice Support Managers ease the pressure by putting together an action plan, and then facilitating meetings, organising quotes, sourcing services and providing numbers. The PSMs do all of this work so the new start-up owner avoids the time consuming research and simply has to make decisions.
