Expanded Specialist-led Neurology Team

We’re delighted to announce that we have expanded our neurology team with two further appointments, to increase our capacity to care for patients with brain, spine and neuromuscular disorders.

Residency-trained neurology clinician Chloe Fisher has joined us along with neurology intern Clare Drury.  Both will work alongside newly-appointed head of neurology Tom Shaw, an RCVS and European specialist, and Marcos Raposo Galván, another residency-trained clinician in neurology.

Chloe graduated with distinction from the University of Bristol in 2018 and is excited to be joining one of the country’s leading small animal hospitals.

Chloe said: “I am thrilled to have joined such a talented team and for the opportunity to work in a superb, multidisciplinary hospital, complete with state-of-the-art facilities.

“I enjoy all areas of neurology and neurosurgery, with a keen interest in feline neurology and seizure disorders.

“I have just finished my residency in veterinary neurology and neurosurgery and am now looking forward to using my increased knowledge and experience to help deliver the finest care for our pet patients.”

Clare graduated from University College Dublin in 2016 and joins Eastcott having completed a rotating internship at Atlantic Veterinary College in Canada. 

Speaking about her new role Clare said: “I’m so excited to be a part of such an amazing multi-disciplinary hospital like Eastcott.

“It’s not often you come across hospitals which have all the skills and facilities needed to provide expert treatment to patients so quickly and efficiently.”

Head of service Tom Shaw said: “Having both Chloe and Clare join is an excellent addition to our neurology team and we’re delighted to have them both on board.

“We’re experiencing a growing demand for our neurology services, so their arrival increases our ability to investigate and treat pets with neurological disorders across the region and beyond.

“Our facilities include advanced MRI and CT imaging as well as electrodiagnostic equipment to assess the function of the nerves and muscles, a dedicated ICU, a wide range of neurosurgery instruments, in-house 3D printing capabilities and cerebrospinal fluid analysis.

“The team is happy to accept referrals for a wide range of conditions of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.”
