Meet the Team - Farm Vets

Stuart Gough

Stuart has been with the practice since qualifying from Edinburgh in 1993. As the practice has evolved over the years his primary clinical role has become farm orientated. As farm vets our main task is to ensure that the meat and milk which reaches your kitchen from British Farms is safe and produced to the highest standards of Welfare. Outside work he enjoys turning our British Farm produce into food to be enjoyed over a glass of foreign wine!

Farm Administration

Angie

Angie will be well known – at least by voice – to all our farmers.  She is your first port of call for arranging visits, routines and TB tests and is also adept at managing calls should emergencies arise.  She has been with the practice since 2000 and whilst not a vet she is truly essential to the smooth running of the farm practice.
