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 Chris in partnership at this time.

Our full time assistants are Clare Powell - who has been with us full time since Summer 2015 and Charles Brice who joined us in August 2016. Part time we have Amanda Kitching who joined us from Monmouth in 2007.

In November 2016 Brookfield Veterinary Practice expanded with the acquisition of Argus Vets in Ledbury, Eden Tanner the previous owner of Argus is still with us today.

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
  • Mark Patteson - veterinary cardiologist
  • Emily Watt - veterinary acupuncturist
  • Clare Arrowsmith  - pet behaviourist
