Because we love animals and strive to provide excellent continuity of care, we are open six days a week and have access to 24-hour emergency care.

Her interests are general medicine and dermatology. She is also a keen surgeon. Claire has a wonderful Labradoodle dog, hens, a cat called Peggy and a very naughty Sprocker Spaniel called Sprocket. She loves the surgery and all the pets and people she meets.
