Veterinary practice testimonials

At Reaseheath we pride ourselves in working effectively with
 both Training Practices and those practices keen to develop their businesses and employees further.

Here’s what some of the practices we work with have to say about us…

Having the college local makes such a difference to training our veterinary nurses.  The nursing team at Reaseheath College are approachable and will always make themselves available to speak to you.  They provide a wealth of feedback for your individual student which is useful for in house training so that we can work together to improve our students learning experience.  When you are unable to contact someone initially they will always ring you back when you request.
