White Lodge Veterinary Clinic has appointed Claire Godfrey as the equine and farm manager at its new farm and equine veterinary clinic, which opens in Minehead in April 2015.
Claire Godfrey will run White Lodge’s new farm and equine clinic in Minehead.
The mum-of-three will be running the practice’s new state-of-the-art farm and equine treatment centre, which has been built from scratch during the past six months. Finishing touches on the interior are currently being made.
Claire said: “I’ve worked at White Lodge Veterinary Clinic, which already has practices in Williton and Minehead, for 21 years,
initially as a receptionist, then I qualified as a nurse in 2001 and have been mainly nursing equine patients ever since.”
Claire’s new role will include running the new clinic, drug ordering, organising the day-to-day diary and looking after the large animal vets from the practice.
Vet Tom Gliddon, who specialises in farm and equine animals, said: “We’re delighted that Claire is going to join us at our farm and equine veterinary clinic. She’s an excellent team member and is perfect for her new role.
“It promises to be a very exciting venture for us and we’re looking forward to the official opening when we’ll be hosting an open day for visitors to have a look around.”
Tom, who has been on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons examiners’ panel for the postgraduate certificate in equine practice, explained: “The unit has been long anticipated and we hope it will enable us to offer a more focused and efficient service for our farm and equine clients.”
