Senior Veterinary Surgeon

Corina, MRCVS

Qualifying in Dublin in 2013, Corina joined our busy Vet Team in early January 2019 after spending many of her practising years gaining a huge amount of experience in both medicine and surgery in South London.

Considered one of South London’s best all round General Practitioner vets, Corina is a both an excellent advanced sonographer (ultrasound) and a highly competent soft tissue surgeon. Currently undertaking a further certificate to gain an advanced veterinary qualification specifically in surgery, Corina can often be found in theatre at both our Mayow Veterinary Surgery and our hospital in Streatham Hill.

Being an OV Practioner means Corina is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.

Melania MRCVS

Melania has been practising in London since 2016 and is an integral part of our award winning London Vets Team who won London’s Best Vet 2020!

Mel qualified in Italy in 2012 and decided upon pursing a role treating pets in London to enhance her excellent knowledge of both surgery and medicine.  Mel is currently furthering her surgical skill by undertaking an advanced certificate in small animal surgery which means she’s spending a lot of time in our busy operating theatre!  Still greatly enjoying the interaction with pets and their owners, Mel takes pride in managing complex cases and building excellent relationships with all our clients.

An immensely proficient small animal practitioner, Mel is confident in all routine soft tissue surgery, radiology and ultrasound.

Away from the surgeries and when she’s not studying for her further certificate qualification, Mel enjoys running a journal club where vets can discuss ideas and challenging cases!

Rachel MRCVS

Rachel is our very own Royal Veterinary College graduate and has been practising in London since 2016. Since joining us in 2018 Rachel has furthered her keen interest in ultrasound and developing her cardiac scanning ability, complimenting her passion for taking medicine cases forward when they require further investigation!

Having a very keen interest in client care and relationships, Rachel loves nothing more than being in consult. There’s no hiding in theatre for Rachel, however, she still very much enjoys time for routine and soft tissue surgery.

Away from the surgery Rachel’s interests are travelling around Asia, America and Africa, rock climbing and art.
