Belinda qualified from London Vet School in 1990 and after 2 years in very rural west Wales, she moved to a mixed practice north of Leicester.  After 6 years she left to join the practice at Broughton Astley, becoming a partner in 2003.  Belinda retains her large animal interests whilst running the small animal side of the practice with Helen at the Broughton Astley branch.  After the birth of her first child in 2001, Belinda started working part-time, and now works on Mondays, Wednesdays, alternate Fridays, and some Saturdays.

Helen 1 FARM

Helen qualified from Bristol University Vet School in 1991 and worked in mixed, predominantly farm animal practices in Somerset and Lancashire before coming to Broughton Astley in 1996.  She became a partner in the practice in 2003 on the retirement of the previous practice principal. Helen and Belinda now share the running of the small animal side of the practice at Broughton Astley, whilst also providing cover to the Lutterworth branch and the farm animal team as required.  Helen works Tuesdays, Thursdays, alternate Fridays, and some Saturday mornings.

 Farm Ops 020

Tom joined the practice in 1999.  Brought up on a beef and sheep farm in Scotland, Tom held an ambition to be a vet since the age of 5.  After qualifying, he spent 2 years in mid Wales before completing a “Tri-Nations” set by moving to Leicestershire in 1999, eventually taking over the practice in 2003 along with Helen and Belinda.  Tom now heads the farm animal team from the Lutterworth branch, a role that he thoroughly enjoys, and spends most of his time doing varied farm tasks from TB testing to vasectomising pigs!

Amie joined us in 2004 as weekday morning receptionist at our Broughton Astley branch.  Since then she has completed her NVQ Level 2 Veterinary Care Assistant award, and is now undertaking her NVQ Level 2 Veterinary Practice Receptionist award with the College of Animal Welfare.  Amie’s cocker spaniel Lucy is a much loved member of her young family, and who Amie herself admits would probably benefit for a visit to the practice’s “Fat Busters” clinic!
