Orchard Veterinary Centre's main surgery, in Sherwood, is a purpose-built RCVS accredited, first-opinion and orthopaedic referral practice. A smaller branch surgery provides first opinion care for our Hucknall and surrounding area clients.
Lorraine has been with Orchard since 2004 and really enjoys her role as head receptionist and the new challenge of practice administrator. She enjoys meeting different people and interacting with their pets. She is married and has two Dobermans, Nelly and Zeus who enjoy taking Lorraine for long walks! In her spare time Lorraine likes to socialise with her family and friends.
Lindsay joined the team in 2017 as a receptionist at our Sherwood practice. She completed her work experience here whilst she was in school, and was very excited to be back working in such a friendly place. Lindsay loves meeting all the clients and their pets at the practice. At home she has three dogs that she loves going out for long walks with and taking swimming.
Rachael joined our team as one of our receptionists at the Sherwood practice. She has been a client of ours for many years now with her dog, Scamp who is known as the miracle pup! The brilliant bunch of vets and nurses saved his life when he was just weeks old and now Rachael says she feels privileged to be part of the wonderful Orchard family. Rachael enjoys spending her spare time walking Scamp, along with her new addition to the family Toby the Labrador and socialising with her partner, family and friends.
Phil enjoys working at being part of the caring team. He enjoys meeting and getting to know all of our clients and their pets (especially puppies) but much more than anything seeing the poorly ones get better.
Emma has been working as a dog groomer since 2014. She became interested in dog grooming as she is a dog lover and was looking for a profession that she could channel her love of dogs into. Emma really enjoys the fact that no two days are the same at work and she gets to meet some great canine characters, as well as their owners.
