BVMS CertAVP(GSAS) MRCVS Advanced Practitioner in General Small Animal Surgery
Senior Clinical Director
William graduated from Glasgow University in 1999 and has worked for Springfield Vets since 2000, after having seen practice here as a student. He has worked in a number of the branches during this time, before moving to the Rotherham hospital in 2007 as one of the clinical directors.
William has a strong interest in surgery, and performs many of the more advanced orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries at the hospital. He completed a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice in 2013, and in 2015 passed a final exam to obtain a Certificate in Small Animal Surgery (CertAVP(SAS)), allowing him to be recognised as an advanced practitioner in this area. He has a particular interest in minimally invasive (keyhole) surgery and was one of the first vets in the country to train and offer keyhole surgery for pets. This involved extensive training in the UK and overseas and now forms a significant part of William’s caseload. He has also trained other vets in this discipline.
William is from Sheffield and lives locally with his wife, three children and Labrador. His hobbies include reading, music, cooking and cycling.
