Cécile Soyer MRCVS
I qualified at Maisons-Alfort, near Paris, in 1996. I worked for many years around Paris, sharing my time between first opinion practice and medical oncology. I moved to the UK in 2011 to widen my skills in oncology in conjunction with the Royal Veterinary College of London. After a few months though, I realised that I missed the long term care aspect I enjoy in this job and decided to return to first opinion practice with its diversity and its incredible human bond built on a daily basis between us, the pets and their owners.
I came to Chichester by chance but I really enjoy working with the team here and the family-sized surgery. I still face cancer in pets and I am happy to support the pets and their family as well as I can. I keep my knowledge updated by reading and attending congresses and am delighted to work in collaboration with distinguished specialists in the area.
In my spare time, I enjoy music (mostly piano and jazz), horse riding, yoga and swimming. I also discover the south coast and the South Downs National Park. The city girl I am enjoys concerts, movies and exhibitions as often as possible, either in Chichester, in London or in Paris. Indeed, I regularly jump on the Eurostar to go to Paris which I now visit as an old friend, with no duty apart from having fun!
