Arun Veterinary Group

Meet our new Westergate vet Lisa Chalmers


Lisa studied veterinary medicine at the Royal Veterinary College in London, and has been based in West Sussex since graduating in 2001.

After spending four years in mixed practice, she decided to mix business with pleasure and so spent the next three years alternating travelling with locuming, including a spell in Greece neutering cats, and also in Kenya, with the duty vet on the Rhino reserve at Lewa. She is hoping not to need her darting skills in Westergate!

For the last eight years Lisa has worked in small animal practice, where her main interests lie in medicine, and building a rapport with clients and their pets, and is proud to think that many clients also come to regard her as a trusted friend.

When not at work Lisa is keen on keeping fit, and spending as much time as she can enjoying the beautiful outdoors of West Sussex.

Lisa commented: “I’ve always been impressed by Arun Veterinary Group’s independent, family-style practices. Compared with some of the more corporate practices in the local area they strike a really nice balance between commitment to quality and consistency of care and showing real value when it comes to client costs. I’m really excited to be a part of it.”
