Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon


Read Helen Merriman bio

I was born and bred in Manchester, attending Manchester High School for Girls. I qualified as a vet in 1996 from the University of Liverpool and have worked in and around Greater Manchester ever since. My four-legged family includes a Border Terrier, Bo and a Working Cocker Spaniel, Rudie. The two legged family includes a husband and two sons.  I am proud to be serving the pets and their humans of Prestwich and the surrounding areas. I am confident that you will be happy with the personal care that my team and I aim to provide.

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Debbie bio

Hi, I'm Debbie.  I grew up around Manchester and came back to the North West after graduating from Edinburgh Veterinary School in 2009.  I have a special interest in surgery and hold a post-graduate surgical certificate.  I love all the exotic pets that come through the door too after working in an exotics practice following graduation.  I joined the Prestwich team in 2022 but had a bit off time off to grow my two-legged family.  At home, I live with my partner, our daughter and our cats, Tess and Roly.

I love being involved with the pets and their families. My experience with animals comes from always having a variety of pets growing up. I have a Staffie cross called Zara who we love. It’s great working as a team. Who wouldn't love cuddling kittens, puppies and small furies all day as part of your job. BONUS.

Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Nadine bio

I'm the VCA here at Prestwich, qualifying in 2019.  I assist in all areas of the practice from reception, kennels or cattery and theatre.  I also get to give lots of cuddles to the pets that come in for procedures, and who doesn't want cuddles while recovering from surgery?!  At home, I have a child, and three cats to keep me busy.

Read Georgia bio

Hello, my name is Georgia and I am relatively new to veterinary care. I graduated from Salford University in 2022 with a Bachelor of Science degree in wildlife conservation and zoo biology and hope to one day become a qualified veterinary nurse. I am a massive animal lover and I am very passionate about nature and the environment. I currently own a blue Staffy called Blue (very original name), and did have another Staffy called Rosie. I hope to own more dogs in the future as you can never have enough furry friends :).

I have always loved animals from being a small child. I spent several years working in a vet when I was younger, and after changing to work in retail and supply chain for years, I returned to veterinary work in 2019 and have never looked back!

I have lots of pets – 6 cats, 3 dogs, 3 rabbits and lots of fish – plus 2 kids (3 if you include the husband!) which take up a lot of my time, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.



Practice Manager

Read Ellie bio

I qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2002 and have worked in a variety of veterinary practices in the UK. During my years nursing I developed a keen interest in animal behaviour and now have a BSc (Hons) degree and an advanced diploma in companion animal behaviour and training. I now enjoy working as a practice manager utilising my experience and knowledge to support the team and clients.

I have three children and two cats who keep me busy outside of work but I still enjoy spending any free time with friends, going on walks, swimming and seeing live music.
