Barbara Hambley

Veterinary Surgeon & Joint Venture Partner


Read Barbara Hambley bio

I wanted to be a vet from a very young age, having always had a deep love of animals and was also no doubt inspired by the regular Sunday night appearance of Christopher Timothy as James Herriot, being beamed into the family living room.

I studied veterinary medicine at Liverpool University, an intensive five years of rigorous training and testing, graduating in 1999. I moved quickly into my first role as a small animal veterinary surgeon and have worked continuously in the profession ever since. 

In 2019 I took over as practice owner at Vets for Pets Oldham which has been a fantastic experience. Unlike other large groups, the Vets for Pets model gives me complete clinical freedom to operate the practice based on my years of experience in exactly the same way as I would a small independent practice, but with a wealth of backend support that allows me to put a much greater focus on clinical excellence and customer service.
