Amy Foster RVN

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Amy and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse here at the Burscough surgery. I have been in practice for 7 years, and I qualified in 2015.

I am very excited to be joining Vets4Pets and my new team. I am passionate about all aspects of veterinary nursing, but I especially enjoy providing nurse consults for all of the pets that we see at the surgery. I try to continuously keep my knowledge up to date, and I am currently undertaking further study to gain a certificate in emergency and critical care.

At home I have a 2 year old border terrier called Nell, and several goldfish but only one of which has a name; Rainbow Dash!   

When I do leave the surgery I spend as much time as I can with my beautiful daughter and my fiancé, I also enjoy walking, seeing friends, and going on as many holidays as I possibly can.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I've been a qualified veterinary nurse for two and half years now; I became a diabetic advisor two years ago as this is one of my favourite medical conditions and my favourite area of nursing is in ward where I spend a lot of quality time with our patients. I have also completed the Pet Health Counsellor award; by obtaining this I have improved my knowledge of nursing consultations thus improving my advice and care I can offer to clients for their pets. 

As a veterinary nurse I believe our pets deserve the best treatment possible; because of this, last year I went back to university where I am currently undertaking an additional qualification, the advanced nursing diploma; I recently just passed my first year exams and have 18 months of my course left. When completed, this course will have helped me to improve patient care and nursing treatment.  

I spend most of my spare time looking after my own pets, which there are a lot of! Currently I have three dogs; Ozzy who is a chocolate Labrador (he's my old boy and my first pet, he turned 12 in April), Lilly, a German Shepherd cross and my newest addition to the family is Teddy, a four week old Pomeranian. I also have two domestic short haired cats called Tom and Prince, two rabbits called Lola and Simba, two Guinea Pigs called Ted and Sid and our three Degus; Maximus, Jerry and Gandalf. I also take in a lot of wildlife and nurse them back to health before being released, most recently I nursed a hedgehog (who I named Brian) who now lives in a hedgehog sanctuary. The best part of the job has to be meeting the variety of pets we see, I enjoy seeing their own personalities come out and seeing them happy and healthy - although puppy and kitten cuddles is something I can never get enough of.

Yvonne Godley


Hi my name is Yvonne.  I'm always at my happiest when surrounded by animals.  I started my working career in a boarding kennels before moving to a Veterinary Surgery.  I started my family and chose to have an extended break from my career.  I am thrilled to be back in the environment where I feel I belong.

Outside of work I am the proud owner of a boisterous 9 year old Springer Spaniel, who keeps me on my toes.  I am a keen gardener, always trying to create natural habitats for our fantastic wildlife.  I have also recently started to take part in my local 5K Parkrun.

Hi, my name is Lucy and I will be one of the new receptionists at our Burscough surgery.  I have just finished studying Health and Social Care at Cardinal Newman College.

I love animals.  I am a farmer’s daughter and I have been around all kinds of animals all of my life.  During my studies at college I had a weekend job at Windmill Animal Farm.  Windmill farm is a local petting farm; it was an amazing first job. 

I couldn't imagine my life to be any different. I am hoping to carry on working with animals as long as I can, as it is honestly the most rewarding job anybody could ask for.
