Rebecca Langley RVN
Practice Manager and Head Nurse
Becky began her nursing career at a busy small animal practice where she gained lots of experience and became head nurse, giving her a real insight into how veterinary practices are run. After six years there she decided she wanted a fresh challenge and desired to qualify as a veterinary nurse. She has worked for Medway City Vets since 2006 and was lucky enough to begin her training at The College of Animal Welfare – The Royal Veterinary College in January 2007. She qualified in January 2009 with a merit. Since then, and in between having three children, she has continued to enjoy working and using her skills as a qualified nurse in the practice. In March 2012 she was appointed head nurse and then in December 2017 her title was change to nursing and practice manager to coincide with her varied and challenging role which she very much enjoys.
Elizabeth Carrington RVN
Senior Nurse and Clinical Coach
Elizabeth, or 'Bill' as she is known, began her nursing career in July 1985 at a veterinary hospital in Margate, where she lived on site with her dog Winston. In 1986 she attended Berkshire College of Agriculture for a veterinary nursing course, then moved back to the Medway Towns in 1987 to complete her qualification at a practice in Rochester. Bill has been part of the Medway City team since the practice opened in May 1998, and was head nurse until 2012. She is now a senior nurse and the clinical coach for our student veterinary nurses. Bill has a special interest in dentistry and nutrition and has completed certificates in these subjects. She has also recently completed a merit award in dermatology. When she is not at work drinking tea and eating chocolates, Bill enjoys spending time with her two boys, dancing (modern jive) with her partner, cycling and looking after the multitude of pets she has accumulated through work.
Leigh Agnew RVN
Leigh joined Medway City Vets in 2012 after deciding to change her career. Originally employed temporarily as an animal nursing assistant, she was taken on permanently in 2014 as a student nurse where she qualified in July 2016. Leigh used to volunteer at Howletts and has a keen interest in nursing within this setting. She loves all types of animals including her two at home (although one of those is also known as a husband!). The other is her dog Mitch, who is a crossbreed Lurcher and certainly keeps her on her toes! After returning from maternity leave, Leigh has become a clinical coach to our student nurses.
Michelle Haddrell RVN
Michelle started her nursing career in 1989 and qualified after attending Berkshire College of Agriculture in 1992. She travelled around the UK working in a variety of veterinary practices and also helped with turtle preservation in Greece for a while. She started working for Medway City on the day they first opened their doors on the 11th May 1998. She enjoys everything the nursing profession offers especially medical nursing, and has a keen interest in laboratory diagnostics and radiography. Michelle has acquired her merit award in dermatology and has embarked on her next challenge in feline behaviour and continues to work hard to make our practice as feline friendly as we can.
