Hayley Oates – Referrals Nurse (RVN)
I completed my degree and qualified as a registered Veterinary Nurse in July 2013 and joined the team here at Brentknoll Veterinary Centre in September 2014.
Since joining the practice I have become very much involved with the running of clinics, including assisting Mr Fisher and Sarah with the referral clinics. In October 2015 I will be taking over the managing of Mr Fisher’s referral clinics whilst our senior referrals nurse Sarah is on maternity leave.
At work I have a particular interest in preventative health care and client education. Over the past year I have re-launched the practice’s nurse clinics including our ‘Super Smilers’ Dental checks, ‘Young at Heart’ seniors clinics and will be working with the rest of the team to improve client compliance and improve the overall health of our patients.
Whilst not at work I enjoy running and keeping active in various activities. In the summer of 2015 I became engaged to my long term parter and we are currently planning our wedding together.
At home, I have a very energetic Border Collie called Bonnie who I love to take for nice long walks. I also have 3 cats called Ozzy, Alfie and Zoey; Ozzy and Alfie are typical naughty boys who are always getting into mischief together but they are very loving and affectionate, whilst Zoey prefers a quieter life and spends most of her time outside sun bathing when possible!
