Get to know the people you will meet in the Wick Surgery, their role within the practice and their role within the wider community.
We have divided the staff into 3 categories: veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and the support staff. The success of the practice is based on the co-operation and co-ordination of all the staff in the day to day running of the business. Each has their role, and each is valued for the role they play.
Iain was born and brought up in Lewis, from there he went on to Edinburgh to study at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies before joining the practice in 1990. He is a partner in the practice and enjoys the variety of work that the practice offers. Among other things he is involved in the admin side of the business and nursing training. When not at work Iain takes part in the activities and the running of Pulteneytown & Thrumster Parish Church. At home if he's not acting as a taxi service for the kids he enjoys gardening, reading and attempting the puzzle page of the newspaper.
