I qualified at Onderstepoort in South Africa in the 1980s then did two years of national service in Namibia and Kwazulu caring for livestock and pets in indigenous farming areas. After completing national service I worked in Namibia until moving to the UK with my family in 1990. I joined the practice in 1999 and enjoy all aspects of practice, especially dermatology cases. At home I have a menagerie of pets, including four cats, Ruby a lively border terrier and a very elderly tortoise.

I graduated from Liverpool university in 1998 and went into mixed practice treating dogs, cats, sheep, horses and cattle. I've previously worked in India working at an animal welfare centre. This was mainly with dogs but some cats, cows and monkeys. I returned to the UK after travelling widely and worked in two different branches of a large group practice in the Midlands. I gained a certificate in Ophthalmology and take referrals in the area. I joined the practice in 2003. In my spare time I'm a keen long distance runner and indulge in a variety of other outdoor sports. In the winter I can be found fencing sabre at Barnstaple Fencing club. I have two dogs, two chickens, a cat and a tortoise.

Always had a good experience with the vets. It’s just a shame that some of the reception staff are often rude and patronising.

I have to say i was apprehensive changing vets as we have used the same practice for over 16 years however I should have moved vets years ago! witten park are outstanding in care and attention especially for my elderly greyhound Buddy. He had a dental and I was kept informed every step of the way due to the risks of surgery at his age Buddy was so well looked after and I felt so reassured. fantastic highly recommend witten Park!

Cannot recommend Witten Park enough!!! As the owner of a reactive dog, the staff at Witten Park go out of their way to make sure our dog is comfortable and at ease as much as possible. I need to give a special mention to Dr Steph Randleson. She treated Woody with respect, didn’t push him out of his comfort zone and was so helpful. A five star service, thank you 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
