Neil Hodson

Principle Veterinary Surgeon

I took over the running of Spring Lodge Vets in 1992 and started a series of improvements that lead to the Witham Centre gaining its RCVS Tier 3 Hospital status.

I mainly work at the Witham hospital but also at our newest centre in Ingatestone.

I believe in providing a personal and friendly service to all of our clients and their animals.

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I started work at Spring Lodge as a Veterinary Nursing Assistant in 2013. After two years of hard work I became a Registered Veterinary Nurse in May 2017.

I have a real passion for caring for all types of animals – even the scaly/feathery ones, and you can often find me working at the Witham Hospital during our Out of Hours service at the weekends!

Veterinary Receptionist

Hi, my name is Angie and I’m the receptionist here at Ingatestone Veterinary Centre and I have worked here from the day we opened our doors in October 2008.

We all work very well as a team and there’s always a smile to be found here! I worked previously in London for a media company but absolutely love my career change (especially cuddling the puppies at our puppy parties!)

Registered Veterinary Nurse

I started working at Spring Lodge in May 2014 as a Veterinary Care Assistant. After being with the practice for a year, I was fortunate in being chosen to be the next Student Veterinary Nurse, which I was overjoyed with as this is my dream career.

After 2 years of hard work, I finally qualified in August 2017! I have a keen interest in orthopaedics and radiography. And have an 8 year old Bichon Frise at home called Tilly, who is well known at the practice.
