Our Staff - Vets
Rob graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 1992 and came to work at the practice straight after qualifying. After many years as a mixed vet he is now a full-time large animal vet and our lead farm vet and director. His particular interests are in the areas of cattle medicine, fertility, nutrition and herd health. Outside of work Rob enjoys clay pigeon shooting and spending time with his family.
Hannah qualified from Edinburgh University and spent 18 months in mixed practice in central England before moving to join us in January 2012. Of local origin and being from a farming background Hannah was not only already familiar with the area and the practice, but also with many of our farm clients. She became a Director in 2014. Like Rob, after initially being a mixed vet, Hannah is now a full time large animal vet spending her time on-farm and with horses having a specific interest in Herd and Flock Health, and created our Sheep club. Outside of work Hannah spends the majority of time farming and trying to control her young cocker spaniel 'Thistle'!
Thaddeus graduated from Cambridge Vet School in 2010 and joined us at the end of 2013 having spent the previous three years working as a mixed vet in Norfolk. Working in Norfolk allowed him to gain experience in pig production medicine, but his desire to further his cattle work played a part in his move to the Midlands. Thad became a Director in 2017. Thad's interests are varied and professionally include small animal surgery, birds and sheep lameness. Out of work they include Guinea Pigs, American football, music, outdoor walking and skiing - and numismatics (coin, currency and medal collecting).

Sheila will be a familiar face to many having been with us for over 30 years as a farm receptionist. Out of work Sheila likes to spend time with her three grandchildren and eat in nice restaurants with friends.
Debbie is our Administration Manager and one of our longest serving members of staff having spent many years working on reception as well as in our farm office. Debbie's love is people and she enjoys talking with clients and helping them as much as possible. She also now looks after the reception team keeping them happy and up to date with policies. Outside of work she likes to spend as much time with her grandchildren as possible as well as her foul-mouthed budgie (hopefully not at the same time!).
Lauri has been a farm receptionist with us since 2015. Outside of work Lauri is a busy mum and likes to spend time with friends and family.
Tammy is our practice manager and along with, and reporting directly to, the Directors, has responsibility for the whole of the practice and it's many functions and duties. Tammy's background is Veterinary Nursing and has been with us since 2004. Leaving to work as a veterinary business manager for a pet nutrition company, Tammy returned in 2014. Out of work Tammy loves the outdoors and being active.
