Priory Lodge Vets is owned by two of our veterinary surgeons, Dirk Brink and Abby Pye. Dirk qualified from Onderstepoort in South Africa in 1992, joined Priory Lodge Vets in 1995 and became a partner in 2001. Abby qualified from Cambridge University Vet School in 2003, joined Priory Lodge Vets in 2004 and became a partner in 2017. They are supported by an experienced practice manager and head nurse, who ensure the smooth running of the practice, as well as a fantastic team of vets, nurses and receptionists.

Dirk and Abby jointly manage the practice and lead the clinical team. Ruth Wadsworth, Nicola Stouppa-Moss and Allie Woodward complete the team of veterinary surgeons and each vet provides their own skill sets and specialities.

Today we employ over twenty team members including vets, nurses, receptionists, and animal nursing assistants. Visit the team pages to find out more!

Our head nurse, Alison Drew, leads our strong team of veterinary nurses. They run their own clinics, support our consulting vets and work in the operating theatre and hospital kennels. Our nurses also take it in turns to look after overnight inpatients and stay on site overnight and on weekends to provide essential support to your sick pets.

Our practice manager, Elaine Hind, leads our receptionist team. Elaine is responsible for all aspects of customer care and handles insurance claims. Our friendly receptionists are well known to most of you and they do a splendid job answering calls and emails and assisting clients at the practice.

We collaborate with a neighbouring practice to use their out of hours provision for our clients and their pets. We do provide inpatient care ourselves in our own hospital however and all hospitalised pets are looked after overnight on site by our duty nurse. A vet is always on call for support. On rare occasions we may recommend that your pet be transferred when intensive nursing care is required.
