Scott Mitchell Veterinary Care Ltd
About Scott Mitchell Veterinary Care Ltd
The practice was founded in 2001 by Roger Scott who, back in his home town after 12 years working elsewhere, had identified the need in the area for his concept of a "departmentalised" practice that would offer dedicated teams for farm, equine and small animals. He was soon joined by Jo Bates (then Royle), and others, who helped get to work on the concept.
In 2003 Colin Mitchell joined the practice to further develop the equine department. Colin brought extra experience in the equine sector and shared Roger's vision to build an equine unit in Hexham. In 2005, the business moved from its small surgery within the main mart building to its very own purpose-designed practice across the way on Tyne Green. The business has grown year on year and today hosts 9 vets as well as nurses and administration staff.
The surgery provides modern hospital style facilities for all species and is permanently staffed for 24 hour care- and that's special!
