Richard qualified from Glasgow in 1992 and since then has worked all round the UK and abroad. He spent 4 years abroad mostly working his way around Australia and New Zealand and enjoyed it so much he went back to Australia for a busman's holiday working at Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital before starting at Parkside, then becoming a Director here. He is one the five Vets in the Equine/large-animal team.

He enjoys working with horses and has a special interest in equine dentistry, lameness and endoscopy.

When not working he enjoys time with his young family- and when not running about after the kids tries to get out mountain biking or windsurfing!
