I started at Standish as a locum in August 2022 and enjoyed it so much I decided to stay. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, walking my dogs.

Zophia Jones

Practice Manager

I spend most of my time managing the practice and the wonderful team. Keeping everything running smoothly is more than a full time job. Most of my time is spent behind the scenes supporting the team, and clients. I particularly love the diversity and challenges that occur daily, and helping owners and their companions. Outside of work I am busy with three boys and keeping active.

Just one time I have attended here and would never ever go again. Vet was racist to me and said you cut your dogs ears which is not true and I love my dog like my own child. he said this because I am a foreigner. I paid a lot of money vet to be offended.

So much better than our local vet in St.Helens by way of, they care for their animals as opposed to in it just for the money and a fraction of the price too. Our vet at Medivet, Hilary is amazing with the cats. Easy to get to being a couple of minutes from J27, M6. Parking great too with a large car park. Highly recommended practice.

Great vetinary service. They genuinely seem to care for the animals that visit the surgery. Very happy, however like most places the cost of pet medicine has risen, but that's life!
