Dr. Clare Bartram BSc PhD BVSc CertSAM MRCVS
Veterinary Surgeon and partner
I have taken a somewhat unconventional route into the veterinary profession having first undertaken a degree, PhD and finally a post-doctoral research position in Biochemistry before embarking upon my true vocation as a Veterinary Surgeon.
I graduated from vet school at the University of Liverpool in 2001 with a distinction and joined Rutland House, a busy veterinary hospital in St Helens, where I practiced for the past 12 years. In 2009, I attained a Royal College Certificate in Small Animal Medicine; as a result of this, I undertook referral cases in Internal Medicine and have a particular interest in liver and kidney disease, especially management of chronic cases to maximise quality of life.
In opening my own practice, my goal is to bring the discipline and best practices from my previous experiences to a warm and welcoming local surgery delivering the highest standards of patient care.
When not at the practice, I live in Liverpool with my partner, Simon, my beloved rescue German shepherd dog called Kimba and our two adopted cats, Frankie and Lucas.
I enjoy my job enormously and take great satisfaction from providing a quality service to both my clients and patients.
