Ash qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 2007.  He spent his 1st year of practice in North London before moving to a larger, busier surgery in Croydon where he stayed for 6 years and became the Senior Vet.  In 2014, Ash moved to the Blackheath area.

He enjoys medicine and soft tissue surgery but has particular interests in cardiology, ultrasound and echocardiography. He loves cooking and climbing, but not at the same time! He is also an OV, so he can prepare passports and pet export certificates.
