Elaine has been with the practice since 2007, and was a welcome addition to the team with 17 years previously spent at an orthopaedic referral practice. Elaine loves all animals and is particularly interested in pet behavioral problems. She’s looking forward to moving house and then being able to get a dog! In the meantime she keeps herself busy with horse riding, socialising and walking in the Peak District.

Read Linda Barton bio

My name is Linda. I have been a member of the Ashton team for the past seven and a half years. My favourite part of the job is meeting new people and their pets but I can confess puppies are my favourite. I own a little Ihasa Apso dog called Lucy who will be five in February and a tortoise called Toady, she will be twelve soon. Working here at the Ashton clinic with the team is a pleasure and a rewarding job, so nice to see happy smiling faces from our clients.
