    Meet the team: Hazel the Student Veterinary Nurse

    What is your role at Mayhew and how long have you been part of the team?

    I am a Student Veterinary Nurse at Mayhew, and I’ve almost finished my studies! I joined the veterinary team in summer 2018.

    Tell us about what a typical day at Mayhew might look like for you.

    At Mayhew, the nurses are assigned a specific role for the day. This could be to care for the Hospital Ward patients, to help in theatre with surgeries, running laboratory tests, or helping the vets during consultations and vaccination clinics.

    What is your favourite thing about Mayhew?

    Definitely the staff. The veterinary team are so supportive of one another, and it is because of this we are able to do our jobs so well and take care of ourselves and one another. Veterinary work can be very high pressure, but if you’re surrounded by people who share your values for animal welfare, you can really work as a team to give each patient the best level of care.

    Do you have any pets? Tell us a little about them!

    Scamp is my rescue dog from Mayhew. When I first met him in the kennels, I knew immediately he was the dog for me and my partner. Scamp was very scared and anxious going into a house environment, and it’s been a challenge at times, but he has settled into domestic life very well and is definitely a much-loved member of the family.

    When you’re not working, what are your hobbies/interests?

    Coming from an art background, I have a creative side to me as well as a scientific one – at work I get to feed the scientific part, while at home I enjoy being creative by crafting, making music and DJing (under my alias Dj LadyManners).

    Currently I’m…
    • Reading: The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark
    • Watching: I’m a TV addict. Recently I’ve watched Succession, 30Rock, The Sopranos, and then I’ve been getting my reality TV fix with Glow-Up on the BBC.
    • Listening to: : Podcasts such as My Favourite Murder and Wicked Words (for my true crime fix).
    • Cooking: Does Deliveroo count..? My partner is a chef so when he is at home I’m well fed!
    • Obsessed with: Scamp! But my greatest weakness is pizza.
