Paul is an RCVS recognised and EBVS® European Veterinary Specialist in Small Animal Internal Medicine and Clinical Director at Highcroft Referrals in Bristol. Following graduation from the University of Cambridge in 2006 he returned to his home territory of South West England where he worked as a first opinion vet briefly in large animal work and then for four years in a busy small animal practice in Frome, Somerset.

Having developed a passion for the challenging cases he was lucky enough to be awarded a residency in small animal medicine at the University of Bristol and became a diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 2014. Since then he developed a new internal medicine service at Eastcott Referrals in Swindon before moving to Highcroft Referrals in 2018 as Clinical Director. Paul is privileged to work alongside his co-director Delphine Holopherne-Doran in this busy, growing and advanced specialist hospital.

Not one for staying still Paul enjoys spending time with his young family, the odd mountain ultra running race, sailing and he also volunteers as a community first responder for South West Ambulance Service Trust responding to 999 emergencies in his local community. Alongside all of this he is Chair of the BSAVA Congress Programme Committee planning the annual BSAVA Congress until 2023.
