GeorgiaSueWe have a new vet and a new receptionist to introduce to you.

Simone Cutler has returned to Nottingham university to undertake a medicine internship for one year. She will continue to work some weekend shifts, so you may still see her at the practice and she will rejoin us next August. In her place, Georgia Cadden comes to us having recently qualified from Bristol university. Georgia brings with her all the most up to date veterinary knowledge, she particularly enjoys surgery and is keen to focus on this area of veterinary practice. She has two cats.

Peggy Flory is retiring, and will be replaced by Sue Jones. Sue has been a veterinary nurse for over 20 years, and for the last 13 years has been working locally¬†as a veterinary nurse/receptionist. We’re sure her nursing experience will prove invaluable at the front desk. She has 2 dogs, 2 cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, aviary birds and a parrot!
