Francis graduated from Cambridge in 1997, after which he worked in a mixed practice for two years where he got to treat a wide range of small and large species. He joined Scarsdale Vets in 2002.
He gained his Certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2003.
Francis enjoys all aspects of first opinion practice from meeting new pets at their first vaccination through to managing sick animals in the hospital. While he still likes the opportunity to get into theatre and carry out routine surgery, his passions are Internal Medicine and Imaging.
At home, Francis lives with a cat, chickens and 2 donkeys. In his free time, he likes to travel and to visit the cinema with his family, largely watching intellectually improving films involving superheroes and spaceships.
He has an entirely healthy interest in classic and modern Doctor Who, enjoys snowboarding and scuba diving and was persuaded to take up running a few years ago. He drags his son along to ParkRun at the weekends and has (slowly) competed in 10k, half-marathon and (one) marathon. His ultimate aim is to complete the London Marathon for charity and in a decent time (so he never needs to do it again)!
