Our Team

We are incredibly proud to have an outstanding team of highly qualified veterinary specialists, veterinary nurses and support staff at Southfields, providing first class care for our patients and an excellent service to their owners and to the vets who refer cases to us.

It would not be possible to provide such a service without a team of people who are committed to excellence. Our team of friendly, dedicated, caring staff aim to do their best for our patients, giving the highest standard of treatment and care.

Southfields Veterinary Specialists actively encourage our team to pursue continuing education in their various fields and we advocate a collaborative and sharing environment in which new ideas and knowledge acquired will benefit all relevant team members. In addition, we hold regular in-house meetings and are engaged in a system of appraisals which allows us to continually monitor the levels of care and service provided for our patients, their owners and the vets who refer their clients to us.

Clinical Director

When I became Clinical Director of Southfields Veterinary Specialists in December 2016, I wanted to build a team of highly qualified and talented people who would not only enjoy working together, but who would deliver the highest standard of care to the pets treated in the hospital, show the utmost compassion with their owners and provide the best possible service to our referring vets.

I am pleased to say that we have an exceptional group of people at your service and you can rest assured that we will take care of your pets exactly as if they were our own. We are proud of our core beliefs of CareRespect and Excellence, and these beliefs drive us in everything we do, whether it is taking care of your pet, ensuring the owners are always informed with honesty and integrity, or offering our referring vets and practices all the support they need and require.

You can put your trust in us.
