WESTWAY Veterinary Group has expanded its management team with the appointment of Caroline Scobie as a clinical director.
Caroline joined the Newcastle-based veterinary company six years ago after studying veterinary medicine at Edinburgh University.
She has run Westway’s Tynemouth surgery since it opened nearly five years ago, as well as working on medical cases and carrying out operations at their main hospital in West Road, Newcastle.
Caroline joins Helen Clark, Amy Steel and Jane Thompson on the board of Clinical Directors at Westway, which employs 40 vets at its 21surgeries across the North East, from Wideopen down to Darlington.
She said: “I love Newcastle and love working at Westway, where we have an amazing team of receptionists, nurses and vets.
“We have fantastic facilities to work up cases, with digital X-ray, ultra-sound, excellent operating facilities, seven operating tables, and a separate cat and dog unit. We have a very close team with a lot of experience in surgery and medicine.
“We all work really well together and this is a happy place to come to work.”
Westway is part of VetPartners Limited – a collaboration of some of the UK’s most respected and trusted veterinary practices.
Caroline, who is originally from Broughty Ferry, near Dundee, is also chair of the VetPartners Medicine Group.
The group is part of the VetPartners Clinical Board, whose role includes promoting clinical standards, examining evidence for best practice treatment, improving collaborative working within the veterinary company and helping to guide CPD requirements.
The Clinical Board is driven by clinicians in VetPartners practices.
