James attained membership to the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists through examination in veterinary behaviour in 2012.

He was awarded a general practitioner certificate in ophthalmology in 2019 and a post graduate certificate in small animal ophthalmology in 2020. James takes on ophthalmic referrals and is able to perform various ophthalmic surgical procedures with our operating microscope.

Kyley joined a private family run veterinary practice in 2003 and qualified in 2008. Here she was exposed to a wide variety of cases including pregnancies, cesarians, wildlife, RSPCA court cases and charity work, as well as the lovely routine cases of the practice. Kyley developed a passion for those pets less fortunate and enjoyed many hand rear and critical cases that she nursed at home – ranging from puppies and kittens to ducks, wild birds, hedgehogs and fox cubs. After 7 years as a Head Nurse she left to join Medivet Sidcup in 2014 and loves her role as Head Nurse at this branch. She has watched the branch grow from one vet and three nurses, to four vets (two part-time) and five nurses and a receptionist. She has a great sense of pride in how the practice has developed, and the level of care that all of the staff are passionate to strive for. Outside of work her main focus is her 6 year old son, her rescue dog, her two horses whom she bred 16 years ago and her rescue pony.

Siobhan Fulker

Student Veterinary Nurse

Siobhan is a student veterinary nurse (SVN). She changed careers a few years ago when she became frustrated with her office job and realised she needed to do something she was truly passionate about. Now she can say choosing this job was the best decision of her life! Alongside her studies (when she has the chance) she enjoys reading, going to the gym and exploring the best spots in London for nice food. She grew up surrounded by dogs - particularly cocker spaniels, so she will be the first to ask for a puppy cuddle if you have a new spaniel in the family! She is focusing on becoming a registered nurse for now so is yet to find her “niche”, but maybe one day could see herself working with wildlife, or in rescue, making a difference where she can.

Worst experience with a vet! Doctor anable to handle my dog.She was scared by a vet,in another practice. After asking for different vet,she was ok,if the doctor knows how to treat her. At Haffway St everything was awful.He even asked me to go out and he will bring a nurse.I refused,as he would scare her more.And the way he said:Hold the animal!!Was a young Greek man. When I was trying to complain to Manager,she would not leister. Horrible experience! Went to another practice and my girl was not scared,as the doctor first gain her trust!
