Lead Veterinary Surgeon

I've worked at the practice for 25 years, since qualifying from Bristol University in 1995. In 1999 I gained a Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. I perform most of the practice’s ultrasonography, and have a special interest in endoscopy. I'm also passionate about cats and am proud that the practice is an ISFM accredited Cat-Friendly practice. I own a labrador, two cats and two rabbits. As a result of venturing into rabbit ownership I'm now very interested in rabbit welfare. In my spare time I'm a keen cyclist – spending a lot of my time off both road cycling and mountain biking and taking part in triathlons.

Head Veterinary Nurse

I joined the Fairfield team in 2018, having previously worked as a night nurse at a veterinary hospital. I have a degree in Animal Studies and a National Diploma in Veterinary Nursing. I love all aspects of nursing, especially bonding with the patients and providing comfort to them when they need it most. I am very proud of our Cat Friendly status and encourage cat friendly practice in everything we do. At home I have a basset hound named Lilly, three cats; Bonny, Figaro and Starsky, and a very cheeky Parrot Named Marty. In my spare time I enjoy ceramics and like to sculpt animals to try and capture their personalities.

From the age of 13, I knew I wanted to be a Veterinary Nurse after a visit to the vets with my first cat. I qualified as a listed Veterinary nurse in July 1993 and was made Head Nurse in 1991. During the years I have obtained various qualifications including a management introductory certificate in July 1998, a first aid at work award, a Hill’s nutritional adviser programme and a diploma in Veterinary Nursing in October 2008. I'm particularly interested in nursing feline patients. I have always lived with animals including cats, a dog, chickens, hamsters, rabbits, fish, a budgie and guinea pigs. In my free time I enjoy going to the theatre with my Mum, socialising with my friends and going to agricultural shows with my Dad.

From an early age, I knew I wanted to work with animals. My first step was to complete a BTEC National Diploma in Animal Management course, which I achieved at Distinction level in 2007. At 20 years old, I got a work experience placement at the Hinckley practice. I undertook a course to become an Animal Nursing Assistant, completing this at Distinction level in 2010. Following this I was enrolled as a student Veterinary nurse and qualified proudly in June 2013. My particular areas of interest include anaesthesia, laboratory work and nursing in-patients. I currently have two guinea pigs and two English Pointer dogs, all with big personalities. In my spare time I enjoy taking my dogs for long walks, outings with my family and friends, and evenings in with a good boxset.

Veterinary Nurse

After working for the Retired Greyhound Trust as a teenager and growing up around a variety of animals, it has now become my ambition in life to care for all animals through nursing. I love meeting clients and getting to know their companions as well in consultations. I have a particular passion for dentistry and love helping owners to make sure we can keep their pet's teeth pearly white and healthy. I couldn't be prouder to work with such a fantastic and dedicated team. I currently have two greyhounds called Demi and Bex, both of which I adopted as rescue dogs. We enjoy long walks together followed by even longer naps at home.

Student Veterinary Nurse

I joined the Hinckley team in September 2015 as a Student Veterinary Nurse. I started off at college, however decided to take a break from studying and get more experience from working in practice. I love my role as a nurse. I have two animals of my own, a family cat called 'Jake' who I have had since a kitten, and a horse called 'Jess'. I love every aspect of owning a horse, the challenges it brings and days out we have including drag hunting and cross country. We both love and enjoy this.

The appointment was very well organised given the current circumstances. I was a little unsure of leaving my puppy to go to his appointment without me but I was made to feel so comfortable and the information provided by the vet was absolutely fantastic. Sam came out happy as Larry as if nothing had happened. Thank you

I didn't visit the Vets but I spoke to Geraldine, who is the Head Vet. After seeing an article about a new treatment, I asked her about the new injection for dogs with arthritis. Geraldine was so helpful and informative. She said that if I couldn't get it at my own Vets, she would treat Bow. My own Vets have just started giving the injection and she's had her first dose. So far, so good. Thank you so much for trialling Librela by Zoetis in Leicestershire. It is changing Bow's life and she is becoming a happier, pain free Labrador. Thank you 🤗

Incredible service, can't rate highly enough. We took walter for the second of his puppy course injections and have been impressed with the quality of care and customer service every time we have attended or phoned. Not just a 5 stars in relation to vets, but to businesses in general. Unrushed appointments, vet happy to answer any questions despite how stupid we may sound.
