Our team of nurses...

Three full-time nurses are responsible for the healthcare of animals presented to the surgery. They are able to offer a full range of diagnosis and treatment for all common companion animal species.
All of our nurses are fully qualified and have a high level of expertise in caring for domestic species, with over 30 years' experience of small-animal nursing between them. Reception is run by a team of two full-time and two part-time members. As a first point of contact they are able to offer advice on when an appointment with a vet is needed, as well as being able to answer many day-to-day questions regarding routine healthcare.
