Robin is President Elect of the British Veterinary Association. He was born and brought up on a tenanted hill farm in the Yorkshire Dales and from there attended the local grammar school.

He graduated from Liverpool University Vet School in 1985 and joined Tom Norman in a two-vet mixed practice in North Shropshire. Robin moved back north in 1987 in order to marry, and after a year in small animal practice in Leeds joined Stanley House Veterinary Surgeons, his current mixed practice in Colne, Lancashire as a small animal assistant. Robin became a partner in 1990 and is now a director of the four-centre practice with four co-directors and a staff of 50.


Robin is a past president of the Lancashire Veterinary Association and a life member of the Veterinary Benevolent Fund (VBF). His more active involvement with BVA began as a facilitator for recent graduate meetings in the North West and he still hosts lunchtime meetings with recent graduates at OV training days at Barton Hall AHVLA centre. Robin has been a member of BVA’s Members Services Group (MSG) over the last four years and became chair in 2009.


"The Webinar Vet has been very useful for me as a part time vet nurse and full-time mum with two children. It’s great and the webinars are amazing!"

Jo Scott Nurse

Webinars are a really a great idea, especially in my case (mom of young children, so taking a few days to go to seminars is nearly impossible!), and I know I'm not the only one!

"Since having 2 kids, I've found it difficult to find time to get out to courses, so The Webinar Vet has been my lifeline. It has been fantastic"
