Liz Hastings RVN Head Nurse
Liz is our Head Nurse.
She originally started nursing at the Woodborough Road Surgery way back when; and we were delighted when she came back to work with us. Liz is very interested inpatient care, particularly during long stays where she takes the time to assist feed them and giving the TLC they really need. She might be one of the craziest members of the team but she has a heart of gold. She currently runs puppy parties with fellow head nurse, Mel.
She has two daughters and several pets at home including her two naughty Jack Russells; Daisy and Ollie, cats; Jack Jack and Alfie, plus a long suffering husband! Liz is a huge Take That fan.

Rachel Brennan RVN
My name is Rachel. I completed my veterinary nurse training at another small animal practice in the Nottingham area.
I have three beautiful cats; Mickey, Duchess and Leo and a bouncy dog called Pebbles. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and catching up on my favourite tv shows.
I enjoy playing darts and follow Notts County ladies and men football clubs. Also enjoy watching Nottingham Panthers Ice Hockey Club of which I am a season ticket holder.
Chilling out normally consists of snuggling up on the sofa with my dog Princess who is a boxer/rottweiler cross who I rescued from the RSPCA when she was 8 months old.
Kim is in her final year at Nottingham Trent University and joins us for her long practice placement, which is an essential part of the Veterinary Nurse degree course.
Vikki St John
Vikki joined the practice as a receptionist in August 2008 and lives with her family in Burton Joyce. She has caring nature and huge heart and is our nursing auxilliary.
She really is a crazy cat lady and owns four of her own feline babies; Marie-Lou, Millie-Pru, Charlie Brown and George as well as her two human babies.
When there is time in her busy life for some relaxation, Vikki enjoys going to the gym, reading, home decor and spending time with friends and family.. and usually a large glass of wine!
