Nick graduated with honours from the University of Bristol in 2005. After a short spell working for an animal charity in Romania he moved back to his home town of Stafford to work in mixed practice. It soon became apparent that Nick’s real love was surgery and was awarded the RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery (CertSAS) in 2011. Nick then moved to head the surgical referral team in a local referral hospital before returning to Stafford. Nick is one of a hand full of vets who are RCVS recognised advanced practitioners in surgery. Nick’s particular interests are surgery of the joints and bones, reconstructive soft tissue procedures and spinal surgery, but is equally happy when dealing with other aspects of small animal practice. When not at work Nick enjoys spending time with his two sons, and when possible mountain biking with his Border Collie Lottie.
