As some of you may know by now, Brien Gilmore, our long standing lead vet was struck down by a serious illness just before Christmas. He is in hospital currently and is fighting the illness with the support of his wife Stephanie and his family. For this reason, he has decided to retire to enable him to overcome the illness and spend time with his family. Both Brien and Stephanie are sorry that they could not say goodbye to all the lovely clients that they have been helping over the last 20 years. To cover Parish Lane Surgery we have excellent vets in place and are gradually returning to normal hours again in his absence. Brien has been treating pets in the south London area for some 30 years and is well known for his down to earth, honest, dedicated and caring approach to veterinary care. We would all like to wish Brien all the best with his recovery and hope to see him up and about again soon.
