Rachel Woodward BVMS CertSAS CertExAP MRCVS

Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

Hi I’m Rachel. I’m a Veterinary Surgeon and one of the partners here at Widnes Vets4Pets. I am a born and raised Widnesian and am looking forward to meeting you and your pets. I studied at Glasgow Veterinary School and took a detour via a busy mixed practice in Lincolnshire to come back home to Widnes. 

I thoroughly enjoy my job. I have an interest in exotic species and am very happy to say that I have recently completed a post graduate certificate in exotic animal practice. I also really enjoy surgery, so watch this space for future developments in this area. 

I have a crazy springer spaniel called Poppy, who can often be found at the surgery as our patient welcoming department/extra receptionist. I also have a Syrian hamster called Pudding who loves treats.

Outside of work I can be found playing my saxophone as part of Liverpool Hope Concert Band, or having long walks with Poppy.

Aleksandra Kulisch MRCVS

Veterinary Surgeon

Hi my name is Aleksandra but most of you know me or will know me as Ola. I'm a Veterinary Surgeon and I graduated in 2013 from University of Life Science in Lublin, Poland. 

In Poland I spent 3 years working in a small animal practice. In 2016 I decided to come to UK with my husband to begin a new adventure in our life. Now I enjoy being a part of Vets4Pets Widnes team. 

I truly enjoy my job. I love to work in first opinion practice. My specific professional interest includes internal medicine, radiology, ultrasound examination and surgery. 

I am currently studying towards gaining my Imagining Certificate which I hope to gain in the next year or two. 

I’m a happy owner of two crazy guinea pigs Peanut & Bazyl, a rescue cat Cloud and crazy Weimaraner Mephi who can often be found at the surgery.

Outside of work I enjoy photography, travelling and spending time with my friends and family.

Veterinary Surgeon

Hi, I’m Konrad. I graduated in 2014 from Lublin University of Life Science in Poland. I have worked in a mixed practice for 2 years but in 2017 I decided to come to the UK to start a new chapter in my life. 

I have worked with big and small animals during those few years but I’m now enjoying seeing a wider variety of small and exotic patients. 

Outside of work I like playing volleyball and relaxing at home playing video games with friends.

Laura Shaw

Veterinary Nurse

Hi, my name is Laura and I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN) here at Widnes Vets4Pets. I qualified as an RVN in July 2018 after studying my degree at Myerscough College and I started my journey as a qualified nurse with Vets4Pets in August 2018. 

I thoroughly enjoy my job, but my favorite parts include laboratory work, radiography, and giving your pets lots of cuddles! I am also enjoying working with a variety of different species in this practice.

I feel very lucky to have become a part of the Vets4Pets family and am looking forward to getting to know the clients and their pets. Not many people can say that they enjoy coming to work, but I certainly do! 

In my spare time when I am not at work with your pets, I enjoy going for long walks, seeing my family and friends and spending time with my own cat, Pixel. 


Jess Voss

Veterinary Care Assistant

Hi, my name is Jessica and I am a Veterinary Care Assistant and Receptionist here at Widnes Vets4Pets. I began my career in 2013 as a receptionist in the Vets4Pets Warrington branch. I transferred to Widnes in 2015 and it was here that I was able to progress my career. I am currently studying the Veterinary Care Assistant Course and I am hoping to later study to become a Veterinary Nurse. 

If I am not here with your fur babies I am at home with my own. I have a Yorkshire terrier called Archie, a female cat called Misty, a male cat called Albi, and three female guinea pigs – Pepper, Phoebe, and Clementine. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Alessandra Meacock


Hey, My name is Alessandra  and I am the Practice Manager here at Widnes Vets4Pets. Before joining the team here I worked as Deputy Manager for Pets at home. I have a Animal Management (Plus Business) Degree. I love meeting all our clients, In fact you'll probably find me on the reception floor enjoying plenty of kisses and cuddles.

I have 2 Fur babies, a Beagle called Hugo and a German Shepherd called Opie who you might see being a nuisance behind the reception from time to time.  In my free time I am usually walking trying to tire out my crazy dogs, or binge watching a TV series.


Kath Mcilwrath


Hi, I’m Kath one of the receptionists here at Vets4pets Widnes. I have now worked at this lovely practice from when we opened in February 2015, and can honestly say it is the more rewarding, enjoyable job I have had.

I have worked with the public for over 30 years, mainly in law, and completely adore meeting our fabulous pets and their owners. I am proud to say, I am known as “Auntie Kath” to our lovely fury friends that come to see us, and truly feel blessed at the brilliant relationship I have withpets and their owners. I think perhaps that fact that I give our lovely pets “treats” helps!!!!! – Well hey they give me sloppy kisses, so it’s only fair!!!!

In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with family and friends and enjoying the amazing food cooked by my lovely husband John.

Hey, I’m Faye. I am the newest member of the Vets4pets team. I am the proud owner of many pets such as my little dog Nelly and my two guinea pigs Bubba & Arlo. I also have 4 grey hounds Cassie, Bear, Sam, and Buddy. I am very fortunate to be able to work in such a wonderful place where so many animals get treatment and help they need. It is not very often that you get to work in a job you love and I am one of the few who can actually say I love what I do.
