Meet the team

Francesca, Veterinary Surgeon

Francesca joined our permanent South London Vet Team in 2017 after a very promising career journey so far. 

Qualifying in 2013 from Bologna, Italy, when Francesca first arrived in the UK she was an intern at an extremely popular referral centre, before moving on to practice in a multi vet surgery in Berkshire until 2016.

Francesca's role with us helps to satisfy her talent and enthusiasm for soft tissue surgery and she also has a keen interest in oncology surgery as well as general medicine.

Being a huge small animal fan, she has a much loved 11 year old crossbreed called Jack.

When not in surgery Francesca likes abstract painting, dancing and surfing in her favourite location, Portugal!

David graduated from the University of Liverpool and has spent the last year working in a busy small animal practice in London.  

Priding himself on excellent patient care and with a first class customer service approach, David thoroughly enjoys working up medical cases using a range of diagnostic equipment to help treat your pet. 

David enjoys investigating complex medical cases and is a confident soft tissue surgeon. His future aim is to complete a certificate in diagnostic imaging and David is currently studying to be able to issue your pets with a passport and complete export documents.

When not in surgery, David likes to travel (Vietnam and New York) and play tennis, he also ran the London Marathon in 2017. Next year there’ll be no stopping him, it’s the Paris Marathon 2018!
