We are a mixed animal practice in Cumbria, established in Aspatria for going on a century. We are passionate about animal care and our skilled veterinary team are dedicated to providing the highest quality care for your animals.
Siobhan joined our team in 2012 and mainly works at the Silloth branch premises but will often cover holiday shifts in Aspatria, with the view to offering us more cover with small animal nursing assistance as well as reception. Siobhan is an animal lover with Bongo the Jack Russell and Monty and Charlie the cats, as well as her two boys. Outside of work she is a keen Arsenal fan and often travels to watch them.
Receptionist and Nursing Assistant
Susan is one of Beacon Vets longest serving employees, having joined in 1993. In that time she has seen a large variety of vets with differing techniques and opinions. Susan works on reception from midday, but on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings she also cares for our patients at the small animal surgeries. Outside of work Susan and her husband run a suckler herd locally, having recently stopped milking dairy cows. As such she has good contacts with the local farming community she enjoys working with them.
Receptionist at Silloth
As the daughter and wife of a dairy farmers, Julie has always been around animals, from large to small. When we offered her, in 2012, the chance to work on reception at Aspatria and Silloth she jumped at it. She's currently training to be an animal nursing assistant with ambitions to climb the ladder even further. At home Julie is an accomplished baker, easily whipping up delectable treats and snazzy birthday cakes.
Receptionist at Aspatria
Originally from Newcastle, Sue moved to Aspatria in 2006 and has worked on reception at the Beacon Veterinary Centre in the evenings since April 2008. Her special passions include Clover, the black Labrador. Outside of work time she spends a lot of time with her children and grandchildren, some of whom live within the local area.
