Work with us

Stuart originally came to Westport Vets, Linlithgow in 2011, as an assistant veterinary surgeon, and quickly made partner, after the original owner sadly passed away. In 2018, WPVC acquired two additional branches, in South Queensferry & Edinburgh, after the owner retired. In 2020, Stuart accomplished his dream by buying out his old partner, who was also retiring, and became sole owner to Westport Veterinary Clinic.

Stuart's aim at WPVC is to make the workplace as enjoyable as possible and to achieve this, he has invested heavily both in the team and the equipment. With our team, we ensure their health and wellbeing is looked after by regular in practice events and a healthy social life. All the branches, including the tiny one in Edinburgh, have a fantastic range of equipment to help the team carry out their daily job well.
Stuart's aim is to keep as much of the veterinary work in-house and refer as little as possible, which allows the team to build and develop their skillset and allows our clients to spend their money wisely, rather than referral fees.

The whole team is valued and encouraged to pursue their interests - whatever they may be. Lifelong learning is an integral part of the WPVC ethos and is strongly supported both morally and financially!

As we have an amazing team, and have trained many of our own nurses, we have been fortunate to grow without the need to actively advertise very often. Whether we are advertising or not, if you like what you see please just get in touch. We are always happy to meet up, show you around and discuss opportunities.
