Alex McVey

Veterinary Surgeon and Owner

I grew up in south liverpool and decided to stay local and study at the University of Liverpool. I have a keen interest in anaesthesia and pain relief and feel particularly passionate about geriatric care and dentistry. Outside of work I enjoy following and playing sport, above all Liverpool football club, and attending music concerts.

Sarah Telford

Veterinary Surgeon and Owner

I grew up in rural Somerset but came to the University in Liverpool where I met Alex and decided to stay. I enjoy all aspects of being a vet but have a particular interest in cardiology, medicine and surgery. Outside of work I enjoy hill walking, yoga and attending music concerts. Alex and I currently don’t have any pets but frequently mind Molly the cocker spaniel (in Alex’s picture) but we hope to get our own pet in the near future.

Vicky Williams

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Vicky Williams and I am the head nurse here at Woolton Veterinary Centre. I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2014 and I started working here in 2018. My role is to oversee the nursing team and the ordering of supplies for the practice. I enjoy nursing patients back to full health and also have an interest in exotics, radiography and theatre. In my spare time I enjoy going to the cinema, being active and socialising with friends and family. At home I have a cocker spaniel called Maisie, a cat called Beanz and a bearded dragon called Boba. I love to have animals in my life and I plan to expand my menagerie at home in the future!!

Sharon Davies

Client Care Assistant

I have worked within the veterinary industry for more than 15 years. During this time I have hand-reared over 200 kittens for various charities. I have always been animal mad and live at home with my 2 crazy dogs, 4 cats, 1 guinea pig, as well as my husband and 2 children. When I’m not at home or at work, I can be found at the farm with my horse, galloping across the fields, practising cross country jumps or dressage.

After a career in the NHS I started working at Village Vets (now Woolton Veterinary Centre) and have thoroughly enjoyed my 13 years with them. I have a daughter and a son and 4 grandchildren who keep me busy.

In my leisure time I enjoy meeting with friends, going for walks and eating out. I also enjoy visiting the theatre and attending musical events and once weekly attend an exercise class.
