Mandy Pitt RVN – Head Nurse
From a very young age Mandy wanted to work with animals and so was delighted to get her first job in 1999 working at a big animal hospital where she stayed for five years. She completed all her training and became a qualified nurse in 2003. After this she worked in a charity clinic in London for three years followed by a further six years experience gained across three other practices before joining us at Wingrave in January 2015.
Mandy loves all aspects of her job, but particularly enjoys Nurse clinics, working in theatre and helping care for our in-patients in ward following operations and procedures – particularly those needing a lot of medical nursing care and TLC.
She uses her skills as a clinical coach to help our student nurses with their college work as well as developing their practical skills.
After working with us for a year, Mandy welcomed the opportunity to take on the role of Head Nurse at the practice. She enjoys the extra responsibilities to help with the day to day running of the practice whilst providing the best client and patient service and care possible.
In her spare time, Mandy likes to help and support the local Bobtail’s Rabbit & Guinea Pig Rescue. So much so that she adopted two of their Guinea Pigs; Edgar and Prudence
