Dr Claire Batty - clinical director

Vet
I graduated from Liverpool University and worked in mixed practice in Cheshire after graduation until the pull of home became too much - I returned to Lancashire in 2008 to work for Myerscough Veterinary Group. As clinical director, I am based at the Clayton Le Dale branch. My interests are soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery and I am studying towards a certificate in small animal surgery. In my free time I have twin daughters who, with my Irish Cob, keep me busy.

I have a strong interest in feline medicine and have my own (rescued) cat and two dogs. I live locally with my husband and young daughter.

Dr Kathryn Weston - senior veterinary surgeon

Vet
I graduated from Liverpool University in 2003. I wanted to become a vet because I enjoy working with animals, helping people and the scientific challenge of working as a vet. My favourite part of the job is consulting - I work at the Padiham branch. I have a dog called Phoebe and we do lots of walking locally alongside my husband, Will and young son Nathan.
