Practice Owner & Veterinary Surgeon

BVSc MRCVS

Read Tamsin Bannell bio

Local to the area, Tamsin decided at a young age that she wanted to be a vet, and is indebted to the local vets who were happy to have a youngster in their surgeries for several years to observe veterinary practice.

Graduating from the University of Bristol in 2009, Tamsin spent three years in mixed practice in Somerset and Wiltshire before moving to smaller animal practice, enjoying all aspects of medicine and surgery. She joined up with Mark and Matt, already JV Partners at Trowbridge, Bath and Bristol Imperial, to open Warminster Vets4Pets in 2017 and take the leap from vet surgeon to surgery owner, and hasn’t looked back since.

Owning a surgery brings its own unique challenges, and Tamsin enjoys meeting these head on, setting a high clinical standard, and encouraging a strong team ethic within the surgery. Tamsin’s practice holds state of the art facilities and offer standard and advanced surgery, dental procedures, ultrasound scanning. Above all, Tamsin and the team will always ensure your pets are not only healthy but happy to come into see us – always showing the patience and affection they deserve when we’re looking after them in practice.

Outside of the practice, Tamsin enjoys horse riding, local walks around Warminster and spending time with her family – being close by, the opportunity to ride with family is not to be missed, and for her, there is nothing quite like a horse ride on a crisp sunny morning.

BSc (Hons) BVetMed MRCVS

Read Victoria Hutchison bio

 Growing up in Bath, Tori felt the calling to be a vet from the age of 12, and during school holiday, spent her teenage years observing local vets at work, watching operations and understanding the day-to-day workings of a veterinary surgery. Tori worked as a weekend veterinary receptionist before starting university, at the Royal Veterinary College in London.

Following graduation, she worked in Newbury before moving to Bournemouth.  She spent the last decade living by the sea working in small animal practice and was part of the Poole Vets4Pets team. From there she moved to join the Warminster Vets4Pets team in March 2021, around the same time as getting married and moving house, including getting the keys to their new house on the same day as getting married – Tori certainly doesn’t do things by half.

Tori has a particular interest in diagnostic imaging, internal medicine and dentistry.

Tori’s strong faith keeps her busy with the local church, women’s ministry and volunteering at a care home, and she keeps fit through regular running and indoor rock climbing, and walking her miniature Yorkshire Terrier Maya. An early morning run gives Tori exactly the buzz she needs to get going for the day.

When not keeping fit or volunteering, Tori gets creative with painting and baking. Tori realised quite how much baking equipment she had when it was time to move home, and her new husband has encouraged her not to buy any new baking kit for their new home!

I consider myself almost a local to the area as I grew up just south of Bath and went to Vet School at Bristol, where I graduated as a vet nearly 12 years ago. I have a strong family farming background and have been a lover of animals for as long as I can remember. In my spare time I am a keen Bath Rugby supporter and enjoy spending time at home with my partner and young children. Now that the rugby boots have been hung up for good I enjoy gardening and DIY. I really hope to see you at the clinic soon, where you will be assured to receive a warm and personal welcome.

I'm a straight forward sort of chap with a passion for caring for animals. I love nothing better than a good old chin wag about all things pet! I qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in 2001 and have a wealth of experience with small animal vetting. I pride myself on good clinical standards bundled with great customer service. For me, the two go hand in hand. Offering a friendly, dependable service for pet owners to rely upon is what gets me out of bed in the morning...well that and my young family! In my spare time I like nothing better than spending time with my wife Vicky and two sons. I can often be found at the Rec supporting my beloved Bath Rugby or out in the country side walking to a tucked away pub for a bite to eat and a pint to drink, preferably with family, friends and dogs for company!

Jenny enjoyed 13 years as a veterinary nurse before joining the Warminster Vets4Pets team as the Head Veterinary Nurse in 2017. She has a strong interest in orthopaedic surgery, enjoys the rewarding nature of clinical nursing, and looks forward to helping Warminster Vets4Pets continue to provide outstanding veterinary care.

The daughter of a UK Army Officer Jenny spent her early years travelling the world, including Germany and Hong Kong, educated within the English schooling set-up on each army base. Her parents settled in England, allowing Jenny to spend her secondary school years in the UK. With a leaning towards a science-based career, and having always loved, Jenny achieved a BSc Honours degree in Veterinary Science and Nursing, graduating from Sparsholt College in 2008. Jenny also holds a team leadership NVQ.

Away from the surgery, Jenny enjoys spending time with her family and friends, as well as walks in the country with Archie her Yorkshire Terrier cross Jack Russell, and going to the theatres in Bristol and London. When the weather isn’t suitable for outdoor pursuits, she enjoys a spot of Lego, concentrating on Harry Potter models.  Expelliarmus!

Rachael Massey

Rachael Maddick

Registered Veterinary Nurse

Read Rachael Maddick bio

Rachael has always wanted to be a veterinary nurse, but started at Pets At Home in Trowbridge, before taking the opportunity to become a Student Veterinary Nurse at Warminster Vets4Pets.  She qualified in September 2021.

Born in Hong Kong, Rachael quickly found herself in the Wiltshire area, and having been educated locally up to A Levels, completed a creative writing and English literature degree at Bath Spa University, following her passion for reading.

Outside of the practice Rachael likes to take the opportunity to go for walks, read, or take her two girls out for a bike and scooter ride. However, there is nothing quite as good as cuddling up with her little ones on the sofa with a good film on the television. Or perhaps when it’s 8.30pm, and all is quiet upstairs!

Georgina Moore

Georgina Moore

Receptionist & Veterinary Care Assistant

Read Georgina Moore bio

Georgina joined the Warminster Vets4Pets team in 2017 as a Receptionist and Veterinary Care Assistant. She loves the veterinary working environment, and enjoys the daily challenge her role brings, meeting different pets and building relationships with their owners.

Georgina describes herself as a farmer’s daughter and a country girl at heart. Growing up on a dairy and arable farm, she developed a love for animals, finding medical cases interesting, and knowing that her career would involve animal care in some way.

Outside of the surgery, Georgina enjoys walking and is known to borrow other people’s dogs for further walks! She ran the Bath Half Marathon for Wiltshire Air Ambulance, and was largely unimpressed to be overtaken by the Bath rugby team, all running together dressed as a giant rugby ball. For Georgina, nothing beats a barbeque with friends on a nice summers evening, or perhaps just taking your shoes off at the end of a busy day.

Vets4Pets Warminster is committed to bringing you affordable, high quality care via a modern, well equipped practice, including a lab, pharmacy, digital x-ray and ultrasound. Plus, on site car parking too!

The friendly team can't wait to meet all of their new clients!
