Meet the Nurses
Gillian grew up in the East End of Glasgow. She did her vet nurse training at Glasgow Vet School interspersed with some time working in dog grooming.
She qualified in 1992 and joined Martin Veterinary Centre in 1996 as the only nurse in a small practice.
She now leads a team of 4 registered vet nurses as Head Nurse.
She particularly enjoys working with the vets in the operating theatre.
The rest of Gillian’s time is spent in practice management including health and safety and she was instrumental in assisting the design of our award winning new practice.
Gillian now lives in Cambuslang with her partner John and their three daughters who are still trying to convince Gillian to get another Poodle.
Pam is one of our experienced registered veterinary nurses who joined Martin Veterinary Centre in 1997.
Pam is especially good at nursing our sick inpatients and her conscientious and gentle approach to nursing make her an ideal and valued team member. Pam juggles working part-time as a veterinary nurse with a hectic home life in Cumbernauld.
Her husband Derek & 3 children share their home with 3 dogs (2 working cocker spaniels Poppy & Sophie & a beautiful big boxer Marley), 3 cats (Clifford, Coco and Cairo-all rescued via the wonderful Cats Protection Glasgow Adoption Centre).
Pam is also an experienced dog breeder, her working cocker spaniels each having had litters but has a particular love of short faced breeds like boxers & French bulldogs.
You will find Pam happiest out on a woodland dog walk with her kids (often known as the boxer lady).
