Sheila joined the practice as senior receptionist after a long and successful career in the NHS. She has been with us since the practice was established in 2005 and is responsible for helping the practice to run as smoothly as possible - not always easy when emergencies come in!
When not at work she enjoys going to the cinema, dining out, keeping fit and spending time with her grandchildren.
Jenny joined the team in May 2014 as a part-time evening and weekend receptionist. She has a wide range of skills that she has been able to bring to the job including customer-based care and merchandising. In her spare time she enjoys reading and going to the cinema. She shares her home with a cat called Todd.

Domino is our black and white pied Mongolian Gerbil. She came to us in November 2013 after she was rescued from very poor conditions along with other gerbils. Whilst most of the other animals were rehomed, we fell in love with her gentle and friendly nature and decided to keep her at the practice. She is a very elderly gerbil and we did not think it was fair to put her through the stress of moving to yet another home after she had already spent most of her life being passed from pillar to post.
Gerbils are social animals and it is normally advised to keep them in at least single sex pairs, however, due to her arthritis she is not suitable to be housed with younger (and more active!) gerbils.
Bob is our goldfish. He was brought to the practice by the RSPCA after his owner suffered severe health problems and could no longer look after him. We do not treat fish at our practice but he had nowhere else to go and would have to be euthanised, so we decided to adopt him.
He spends his days relaxing in his tank and eating all of our pond pellets!!
Bob has been rehomed to a veterinary student
