Our History 

Norman White started Brookfield Veterinary Practice in 1970 as a mixed practice treating all species of animals. In 1985 it became a dedicated small animal practice. The practice has continued to expand and modernise with the addition of new facilities and latest equipment to enable us to meet the challenges of modern Veterinary medicine.

Those of you old enough will remember that the practice building was originally a public house called The Whalebone. The bar and public area was in the basement where our preparation room, operating theatre, x-ray room, laboratory and hospitalisation suite are now situated. The ground floor was the landlord's accommodation; this is now our reception, waiting room, consultation rooms and pharmacy. 

Chris Darke joined the practice in January 2004, and became a partner in January 2005. Norman & Chris worked together for the following 3 years but at the beginning of 2008 Norman retired from the partnership & reduced his working hours until he left us in March 2010. 

Victoria Darke joined the practice in 2004 & Chris in partnership in 2010

Our full time assistants are:

Charles Brice who joined us in August 2016,

Holly Sutton became a team member during the summer of 2020.

Part time we have:

Amanda Kitching who joined us from Monmouth in 2007.

Louise Howarth worked at Brookfield for nearly 4 years from 2012, she then moved away and had a daughter, 2017 she moved back to Hereford, and then started back at Brookfield.

Kelly Manning joined in January 2018.

In November 2016 Brookfield Veterinary Practice expanded with the acquisition of Argus Vets in Ledbury, we are in the process of having purpose built premsis for our Ledbury branch

Eden Tanner the previous owner of Argus is still with us today.

Fran Brice joined the Ledbury team in 2020

2020 has been a challenging year with floods in Hereford in February - meaning the basement had to be refurbished completely, this was closely followed by the COVID19 lockdown

The veterinary surgeons are supported by a team of nurses, student nurses, assistance and trainee nurses who visit us on placements. We then have a team of receptionists to welcome you all organised by our practice manager Lucy Soanes.

We also have a number of visiting clinicians

Alex Probert, - osteopath who treats animals
Beth Cameron - vet specialising in rehabilitation, visits weekly from her SoulMateVetRehab in Staunton
Tom Gilding - orthpoaedic surgeon who visits for more advanced skeletal issues 
Mark Patteson - veterinary cardiologist
