Claire Phillips BVetMed BSc certAVP (ESO) MRCVS Equine Clinical Director

Claire graduated from Cambridge and originally joined Wright and Morten in September 2002 as a small animal vet, before joining the equine practice in September 2004. Since 2014 Claire has played an integral part in the growth and development of the equine side of the practice, first as a Partner and more recently as a Clinical Director following acquisition by IVC Evidensia in late 2019.

Claire holds a Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice and is an Advanced Practitioner in Equine Orthopaedics and is based at our clinic where she specialises in lameness investigations and care of the performance horse. Claire is also our main equine surgeon, performing a wide range of elective procedures at our clinic, with a special interest in soft tissue surgery and orthopaedics.

Outside of work Claire doesn’t stop- she’s a keen event rider herself and if she isn’t eventing on the weekend she is busy with her 2 children, husband, dogs and horses!
