I qualified from Liverpool university in 1981 and initially worked in very mixed practice in Leicestershire and the Cotswolds returning to my native North East in 1991.
Since then, I have worked in mixed practice and then since 2002 purely hospital based small animal practice, spending quite some time with the PDSA locally.
I have always taken an interest in local BVA politics and have been a member of our local BVA division for some time including organising local cpd events and meetings.
My current interest is general small animal work but also coaching and mentoring our younger veterinary surgeons.
I hold the Vet GDP qualification.
When at home I still enjoy riding, walking my dogs, gardening, music and cooking.
