I was born in County Down, Northern Ireland and grew up on a farm. I studied at the Royal Dick School of Veterinary Medicine in Edinburgh and qualified in 1993. Since then, I have worked in mixed practice, pig practice, the veterinary pharmaceutical industry and small animal practice. I have lived in West Yorkshire for over twenty years and can now tell the difference between a Yorkshire accent and a Lancashire one! I enjoy reading, collecting and playing vinyl, watching movies and listening to Mark Kermode.

Teresa Newsome

Head Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Teresa Newsome bio

Hi I’m Teresa and I am the Head Veterinary Nurse at Halifax. I came here in 2015 and have been nursing for 13 years. I still love my job! I have three cats Sniper, Prawn and Parka, two of which I hand reared. Parka only has three legs as we was involved in a road traffic accident when he was a kitten. I have always been a big animal lover and knew from an early age what I wanted to be. Being the person who can help relieve an animal from the discomfort of illness, recognise pain from a wound or distress is a really special responsibility. That is my favourite part of the job and is truly rewarding. I also really enjoy meeting my patients in the consulting room. I can really help owners with advice or worries and ensure that the animals are getting the very best care that they desrve. There are never any stupid questions to ask us, so please ask! In my spare time I have a toddler and I love to watch wildlife, especially showing my little boy all the bugs! I also enjoy reading. I love my job here at Halifax!

My name is Genna and I started at Halifax in 2008. I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 2006 and I am interested in exotics and rabbits. The favourite part of my job is anaesthetics and exotics consults. I have three pets, Kye, Clover and Isabelle. Kye is a Greenwing Macaw who is 14 years old (I chose the egg!)and Clover a Tortoise who is 15 years old and I have had her since she was 12 months old. She even has a passport! Isabelle is a Labrador cross who was a rescue dog and is obsessed with tennis balls. I have a baby boy called Issac who takes up a lot of my time but I love walking, gardening, going to the gym and foreign holidays!

I have worked at the practice since 2015, initially I worked on reception but then moved into doing my nursing, where I qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in October 2018. Previously when I attended college I studied for a BSc in Animal Science. The best part of the job, other than working with an amazing team is the fulfillment and satisfaction I gain from helping an animal that is sick or injured. My personal interests include camping, dancing and my family. I love spending as much time with my little girl, supporting her dancing, swimming and gymnastics. We like going on day trips and Disney DVD duvet days where our cat Marley likes to snuggle up too!

Before this, I studied animal management, worked at an exotic animal rescue, volunteered at a cat sanctuary in Malta and worked as a veterinary care assistant. Nursing is a passion of mine and something I have always aspired to do. Nothing is better than knowing you can make a difference in an animals life!

I have been working at Halifax for two years. I absolutely love my job as its such a varied role. A day can consist of cleaning, feeding and monitoring animals to assisting the nurse with anaesthetics, lab work and urinary analysis.

I have a King Charles Spaniel, a young pug, five cats, Bearded dragon, Tortoise, Argentinian Horned frog, Whites Tree frogs, Guinea Pigs, Chickens, two hens and a goldfish! My pets are my hobby along with vegetable growing and wildlife watching, I am also a Brownie Leader in my spare time.

Practice Manager

I joined Patrick and the Vets4Pets team in November 2012 after a change career from the MARS Pet Care industry. I have 3 dogs of my own, Lucas-Patterdale mix, Noodle-JRT and Margaret-Yorkie mix. I also foster for Halifax Hedgehogs where we rescue, rehabilitate and re-release wild hedgehogs who are sick/injured/orphaned. I have a Hog-spital in my house and an array of outdoor hutches. I am also a Mum to my two children, Cinnamon and Eric who also keep me very busy. My favourite part of the job would have to be the people I get to work alongside and the clients/patients we get to meet and help along the way. It's such a satisfying feeling to know you may have actually made a difference to the life of a pet and then in turn a client. I am extremely proud of the team I work with, we really are like a little family! In any spare time I get (which isn't much) I love to travel and read.

My name is Julie. I’m the Senior Client Care Advisor at the practice and have worked here since 2013. No day is the same which makes it interesting. I no longer have my own dog but regularly walk my Dad's dog Lucy, being a Border Collie she loves to run! My pet hate is people who don't pick up their dog mess and who mistreat animals.

I am Mum to two girls Stacey and Sally-Jo and Grandma to Cinnamon and Eric. Prior to joining Vets4Pets I worked as a Senior Financial Administrator in a Primary School. I then became a full time Nanny to Cinnamon until she started full time school. I am the proud owner of a naughty Tortie Ginny who is a very sprightly old girl and Willow the cheeky Boston Terrier. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my partner Michael and my family, cooking and gardening. I enjoy drinking fine wine, eating good food and going on holiday to sunny destinations. I find my role at Vets4Pets both rewarding and challenging, no two days are the same. I enjoy meeting new people and their pets, hopefully making their visit to the practice as pleasurable as possible.

I have worked as a receptionist at Halifax Vets4Pets since 2015. I have ridden all my life and until recently bred and showed Welsh breeds of ponies. I have always owned dogs and currently have three, all of which are terriers. I also used to breed and show poultry mainly Pekin and Japanese Bantams. I love being a part of the team here and the best bit is meeting the clients, both the two legged and four legged!
