My name is Claire Woolford, I am a qualified veterinary nurse. I started nursing in 1998 and spent 8 years working in general practice before leaving to travel through Australia and New Zealand. In 2006 I joined Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists in Hampshire where I am a head nurse and in charge of running the Soft Tissue department. I achieved my VTS (Veterinary Technician Specialist) in Anesthesia and Analgesia in 2013 and I am a member of the AVTAA Credentials Committee. I also work with SynergyCPD providing in house anaesthesia training for practices across the south of England.
