Clare Bartram

Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Clare Bartram bio

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.

Prior to joining the Penny Lane team in February 2016, I worked at Rutland House Veterinary Hospital, where I began my veterinary nurse training in 2004. After qualifying in 2006, I worked initially in the first opinion side of the practice, then as a referral ward nurse, an oncology nurse and also practised physiotherapy.

From a very young age I have always been passionate about working with animals and I hope to bring that enthusiasm, together with the skills that I have developed over the years in practice, to my new family at Penny Lane.

I have a particular interest in animal rehabilitation & physiotherapy. Outside of work I live with my husband Chris and our little Mogwai Pippin who we rescued when he was 3 & 1/2 weeks old. He has a heart condition so he sees a cardiologist regularly.

My name is Sarah and I’m originally from Germany but moved to Liverpool a few months ago. I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in Germany and am currently trying to get my UK nursing qualification.

My passion for animals started at young age and I am obsessed with rabbits and Corgis. I live with my partner and my two house rabbits, Tiffy and Chewbacca. I’d love to get a Corgi one day but my two rabbits are causing enough trouble at the moment.

My name’s Rebecca and I am originally from Luton but I am currently studying in Liverpool. This is my first experience working in a veterinary practice and I am thoroughly enjoying myself whilst learning a lot. I have worked in multiple fields from hospitality to dentistry and I feel that the great team here and the vibrant environment makes this job feel a lot less like work. Throughout my childhood I have been surrounded by pets so I feel right at home here!
