    Meet the team: Lucy the Head Veterinary Nurse

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

    I work in the Community Vet Clinic as the Head Veterinary Nurse. I only started at the end of August so it’s all still very new!

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

    Well, life in the clinic is quite different at the moment, but my job is still to work with the vets in caring for all the medical needs of animals in the Home, and providing a preventative healthcare service for as many animals as we can. As Head Nurse, my role involves overseeing the day-to-day running and organising of the clinic, as well as a combination of other nursing tasks such as preparing animals for surgery, monitoring the anaesthetics and assisting with veterinary assessments. Every day is different and comes with new challenges, which is what I love most about my job.

    What is your favourite thing about Mayhew?

    My favourite thing about Mayhew is how all the different services such as the Veterinary Clinic, rehoming centre and Animal Welfare Officers all work together to provide the best care for animals and people in our community. It is nice to know we are making a genuine difference and improving welfare standards in a combination of ways.

    Be honest, are you a cat or a dog person?

    I don’t have a favourite species- it’s all about the individual personality!

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

    I have a very naughty crossbreed dog called Brodie. He has just turned three and he’s always getting up to mischief.

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

    I’m a pretty keen runner so a lot of my free time at the moment is spent trying to perfect my 5km time. I have also recently taken up wild swimming. Just anything outdoors; I love being outside.
