Erica Johnson

Dr Erica VetMB,MRCVSVeterinary Surgeon

Hi I’m Erica, I’m really excited to be working back at Alcombe Vets having started as a Saturday help when I was at school! After qualifying as a vet 20 years ago, I have worked as a small animal vet in a couple of practices in West London. When I’m not at work, my four (!) children keep me more than busy.

Dr Alexandra Brown

Dr Alexandra iBSc BVetMed MRCVS Senior Veterinary Surgeon

I’m Alexandra, and I qualified from The Royal Veterinary College in London in 2005. I have been working Saturdays for Alcombe in Ealing since 2013. I enjoy all areas of general practice and have a special interest in rabbits and rodents.

I have collected an assortment of animals looking for a home throughout my career, including adopting rats (Cadbury and Bourneville) from a client who had developed an allergy to them, and fostering an unwell feral kitten (Mo) for the Cats Protection until she was a healthy and loving pet.

I have always been desperate for a dog and would have a smallholding with every animal if I could!

Ellen Moore

Ellen RVN Head Veterinary Nurse (on Maternity leave)

Hi I'm Ellen, I began training to become a Veterinary Nurse when I was 17 - I've always wanted to work with animals and I honestly could not imagine doing anything else, After gaining practical experience being employed in a Veterinary Practice, I started an Animal Nursing Assistant course. I then went on to complete my NVQ2 and NVQ3 in Veterinary Nursing.

I was very proud to have qualified as a Registered Veterinary Nurse in 2012. I love being part of the recovery process and helping our patients back to full health and also building happy relationships and bonding with the patients and clients.

I started locuming for Alcombe in January 2015 and was very happy to become part of such a wonderful team of Vets and Nurses. In March 2015 I applied and became employed full time by Alcombe.

I like working for Alcombe because everyone is very friendly, hardworking and supportive of each other. I also like leading the nursing team at the Ealing Branch especially, as I can take time to get to know the clients and their pets very well which helps with part of their continuing care.

At home I have two cats, Eddie and Justin (don't laugh!) I take a special interest in hand-rearing kittens as I hand reared Eddie and many others during my training and I find it a very rewarding experience. In my spare time I like to cycle, take long walks, socialise with my friends and family, or read a good book.

Hello, I'm Mary, Practice Manager at Alcombe Veterinary Surgery.

I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 1980 and have worked at the surgery since 1985 when I was the first Veterinary Nurse employed by the Practice.

I enjoy the friendly working atmosphere of Alcombe Veterinary Surgery where the client & patient needs are always a primary consideration.

I have owned several dogs as pets over the years and have a particular interest in dog training and behaviour. My current pets are crossbreed "Rosie" and Jack Russell Terrier "Jazmin".

Francesca Kenward

Francesca VN Veterinary Nurse

Hi, I’m Francesca and I’m one of the Registered Veterinary Nurses. I am the third generation of my family to work here at Alcombe! I started working here while still at school on a Saturday and then when I left school I pursued my career in Veterinary Nursing.

I worked and studied hard for 3 years and qualified in 2015. In total I worked within Alcombe vets for over 7 years, I left in November 2017 to gain more experience working for a charity, I worked part time for the Blue Cross for a year before I returned to my ‘home’ practice here at Alcombe in November 2018!

The work the Blue Cross do is underrated and amazing! But I just couldn’t keep away from Alcombe. I’m passionate about my work, love the team here and I love how this practice feels like a family in the community.

Beanie Aujla

Beanie Practice Administrator

I’m Beanie. Growing up I’ve always had pets, from rabbits to hamsters and both small & large breeds of dog. I now have a sweet but mischievous Pug Zhu who gets all my attention.

I enjoy my role and managing the administration of the Surgery to ensure the clients & patients are taken care of to the highest standard possible.

Working at Alcombe Ealing alongside such friendly, knowledgeable staff and meeting all the different breeds of pets and their caring owners is an absolute pleasure.

Debbie Shakespeare

Debbie Receptionist

Hello I'm Debbie, I have been working for Alcombe vets now for ten years or more!

I enjoy working on reception as I get to meet so many wonderful pets and their caring owners. I have owned dogs all my life - my obsessive love being for the loyal and distinctive Shar pei breed. I currently have La Rue, a 4 year old rescue Shar pei, and three guinea piggies Flossy, Tallulah and Peaches, that keep me very busy.

Kate Syms

Kate Receptionist

I joined Alcombe, Ealing, as one of the Reception team in 2008. Although I had no previous experience of working with animals, my family has always had pets including cats, dogs, hamsters, mice and a rabbit.

We now have an English Bull Terrier called Dolly (lovely but very badly behaved) and Lettice the cat.

Working at Alcombe means I am very involved with my local community, allowing me to get to know the people and their pets, whilst providing a front of house service for a dedicated, hardworking team of vets and nurses.

Rebecca Pereira

Rebecca Receptionist

Hello, I'm Rebecca, I joined Alcombe as a receptionist in January 2018. I graduated from the University of Lincoln with a BSc in Bioveterinary Science. Following this I embarked on an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases at the Royal Veterinary College where I also worked for a year as a research assistant. I still wanted to pursue my passion for being able to help sick animals and their owners, so I decided to go on to study Veterinary Medicine at the University of Surrey. I am currently in fourth year.

I love all animals but do have a soft spot for cats having six rescue cats at home, that keep me busy! Outside of work and studies, I enjoy taking dance classes and horse riding.
