Peter graduated from Edinburgh University in 1997 and then honed his skills in a small animal practice in Surrey for two years before travelling and working in Australia. On his return to the UK, Peter ran the Forest Gate branch of the Goddard Group for three years before leaving to join Park Vets in 2003 prior to its acquisition by the Goddard Group in 2018. Peter is particularly interested in soft tissue surgery, internal medicine and reptiles. He has two cats – Clyde and Pip who he adopted after they were abandoned at the practice. Outside of work he is a keen cyclist and rock climber.
