Bill has worked in the Nottingham area for over 30 years in both mixed and small animal practice. In 1999 he co-founded the practice with his wife. He has a post graduate qualification in Endoscopy and Endosurgery and brought the benefits of laparoscopic surgery to the practice in 2010. He has performed hundreds of procedures and now trains other vets to perform them. He is constantly looking for innovations in veterinary practice and has recently introduced 'ridgestop' and 'TTA rapid' as new orthopaedic operations to the practice. Away from work he likes to spend time with his family, has a man-shed, a bike, a fishing rod and likes to ski.
We were pleased to welcome Stuart to the Team in November 2016 and he is now happily settled in this area with his wife Joy, a paediatric anaesthetist , their two dogs Dylan and Twizle and Florrie the hamster! Stuart is a 2003 graduate from the University of Liverpool and since then has worked at a number of different places gaining invaluable experience making him an asset to our team. After spending 2 years working on and off as a clinical anaesthetist at the Small Animal Hospital, University of Liverpool he gained his RCVS Certificate in Veterinary Anaesthesia. So whether you have concerns about your pets upcoming anaesthetic or looking for more advanced pain relief options like epidurals, he is always happy to give some advice. Since then he has worked in 100% small animal practices and , aside from anaesthesia, has a keen interest in diagnostic imaging and surgery. We were pleased to enrol him in a 3 year BSAVA advanced surgery course as we strive to always provide cutting edge treatment here at Rushcliffe vets and to promote continuing training for all our vets. His special interests in surgery include Upper Airway Surgery of short nosed ( bulldogs, pugs)dogs and orthopaedic surgery, with Bill and him carrying out advanced knee surgeries for cruciate injuries. He was trained by our own Bill Bowler in laparoscopic surgeries and now happily carries out these types of surgeries. When he's not eating all the biscuits at work, his hobbies include taking his dogs for walks, archery and travel.
Hello my name is John Greehy and I became a permanent member of staff at Rushcliffe Veterinary Centre in August 2017(although I have worked at the practice intermittently over the past five years so hopefully I do know quite a few of you by now!). I graduated from University College Dublin in 2000 and worked in small animal practice in Kent for 5 years prior to moving to Nottingham in 2005. I have worked in several practices in the Nottingham area since then. I gained my certificate in advanced veterinary practice in 2016 and will be hopefully sitting my final medicine exams in early 2018. I am interested in all aspects of medicine and cardiology and hope to continue my studies in these particular fields. I currently have one(particularly antisocial) cat.
