Meet the Team
Neil is a partner and responsible for running the Equine Unit in the practice. He graduated from London in 1984. He is married to Claire who also works in the practice and has two teenage sons, Dan and Will. When not working he is usually to be found watching Bath play rugby, trying to stop the dogs escaping from his garden, or acting as unpaid groom for the family horse.
Kate joined the practice in 2004 having graduated from Liverpool Veterinary School. She enjoys all aspects of equine veterinary work with a particular interest in corrective shoeing and AI. In her spare time Kate rides her own horse in competitions or out on Salisbury Plain with her Border Collie running alongside.
Sanne Wilmink qualified from the University of Utrecht in 2009 and completed an equine internship in an equine hospital in the north of the Netherlands.

She joined the practice in mid 2015 and is looking forward to meet all the people and their horses! In her free time she can be found at the beach kitesurfing (or trying to), and walking her dog Trixy.
