Rory Thomson BVMS MRCVS, Veterinary Surgeon and company director
Rory started his career at Roker Park Veterinary Centre after qualifying from Glasgow Vet School in 2009. After 2 years he moved to a corporate practice for a year and hated every minute of it. He decided he wanted to go back to working for a small practice where he could get to know the patients and have more clinical and financial freedom to provide the best care for the patients without strict financial targets to hit so he helped establish St Clair Veterinary Care in Blyth, Northumberland. After 8 years in Northumberland, Rory has come home to Roker Park Vets as the owner, bringing with him a wealth of industry knowledge that enables him to ensure clients pets are treated as individuals at a fair price.
He’s a family man with a supportive family; He saved Whitburn Library from closure so his children can continue to use it. Rory is also an important volunteer Veterinary Marine Mammal medic for the British Divers Marine Life Rescue charity, this involves active involvement with the Tynemouth Seal Hospital and being on call to assist with any marine mammal that requires help –usually seals but he’s been trained to assist with a stranded whale or dolphin should it be needed!
