Graham PurseyGraham Pursey - Partner and Veterinary Surgeon

I was born in Watford and went to school in Croxley Green and Mill Hill before taking a year out and going to the Royal Veterinary College in London, qualifying in 1989. Since qualifying I have worked in Watford, Barton le Clay in Bedfordshire and Witney in West Oxfordshire before joining Medivet in October 2007, becoming a partner at Faringdon in February 2008. I have lived locally in this beautiful area for over 16 years and currently share my home with my wife, two small children, a dog, a cat, two fish and four chickens.

Reception Team

Julie Brown

Julie Brown - Client Care Assistant

I was transferred to Medivet Faringdon in June 2008 from Medivet Oxted in Surrey when my family moved house.  I had been working at Oxted for ten and a half years. I like the fact that no two working days are ever the same! I like helping the clients and their pets; through the good and bad times. I live locally with my family.  We have a three legged senior citizen cat, Hugo and a young rescue cat, Hector.  We also have three chickens, Babs, Geraldine and Boudica - who seem to have no idea that chickens are supposed to lay eggs!
