Francesca: Veterinary Surgeon

Francesca joined our permanent South London Vet Team in 2017 after a very promising career journey so far. 

Qualifying in 2013 from Bologna, Italy, when Francesca first arrived in the UK she was an intern at an extremely popular referral centre, before moving on to practice in a multi vet surgery in Berkshire until 2016.

Francesca's role with us helps to satisfy her talent and enthusiasm for soft tissue surgery and she also has a keen interest in oncology surgery as well as general medicine. Being a huge small animal fan, she has a much loved 11 year old crossbreed called Jack.  

When not in surgery Francesca likes abstract painting, dancing and surfing in her favourite location, Portugal!
