The surgery has been transformed with one aim in mind: to provide your pet with first class veterinary care
Twickenham Veterinary Surgery first opened in September 2002, as a branch surgery of P.G. Andre in Richmond. In December 2003, Christabel Moseley was made the manager and proceeded to run the surgery for the following years, until she bought it from Mr Andre in early 2008.
In June 2007 a new premises became available three doors down from the existing practice at 64 Hampton Road.
The new premises afforded much more space and in November 2007, after a lengthy application process, planning permission was granted to convert the new premises into a veterinary surgery.
The lease was finally signed in March 2008, when the mammoth project of converting the building into a veterinary surgery began. With the help of a great team, the whole building was transformed into a fresh and modern veterinary surgery, full of fantastic facilities.
The new surgery opened its doors on the 4th August 2008. Since then we have continued to provide hundreds of happy patients with first class veterinary care.
In September 2008, Wendy Stickells joined the surgery as our part-time veterinary surgeon. When she was not at Twickenham Vets, she worked the rest of the week at the RSPCA in Putney, where she had worked for the previous ten years.
New arrival Laura Selley became a member of the team as a full-time vet in November 2009. Wendy then switched to full-time in January 2011.
When Laura went on maternity leave in March 2015, Liz Hayden joined the team for a brief spell. After Liz got married, Emma Littler joined the team, and in April 2016 Adam Bradley completed our team. We also have a part time vet called Helena, who helps us out when we are busiest, on Mondays. Emma works Thursdays and Fridays to allow Wendy and Adam to have a day off.
All of our vets are fantastic to work with and share Christabel’s philosophy that the animals come first.
We are incredibly lucky to have a fantastic team of veterinary nursing staff, led by our Head nurse, Sarah Procter. Their dedication and compassion provide your pets with outstanding care.
The surgery is run by Christabel and her husband Kevin Franklin, who is the Accounts Manager. Both Christabel and Kevin provide hundreds of pets with a local and affordable veterinary service. They are supported by their Practice Manager, Laura Miles, who joined the team in November 2015.
