Linnaeus veterinary specialists admitted to prestigious RCVS Fellowship

Linnaeus has seen seven of its associates admitted to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Fellowship for 2023.

All seven have been admitted for their meritorious contributions to clinical practice.

The Fellowship aims to advance veterinary standards by providing a resource of independent knowledge to the profession.

The newly-inducted Fellows of the RCVS from Linnaeus include Luca Motta from Northwest Veterinary Specialists (NWVS), Ellie West from Davies Veterinary Specialists in Hertfordshire and Kieran Borgeat from Eastcott Veterinary Referrals.

Luca, who has an interest in spinal cord injuries, neurosurgery and advanced diagnostic imaging, is head of neurology at Cheshire animal hospital NWVS.

Davies’ Ellie has a particular interest in environmental sustainability within veterinary medicine and is also the Linnaeus environmental sustainability lead, while Kieran is clinical director at Swindon-based Eastcott and has a strong interest in feline heart disease, inherited heart disease, and congenital heart disease in both dogs and cats.

Meanwhile, both Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists in Winchester and Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service in Solihull have two associates inducted this year.

From Anderson Moores, Lucy McMahon, whose particular interests are in gastroenterology, endoscopy and immune-mediated disease, and Matthew Oxford, who has a particular interest in endodontic (root canal) treatment, have both been admitted.

Meanwhile, representing Willows are Fergus Allerton, whose particular interests include gall bladder disease, canine sinonasal aspergillosis, haematology, immune-mediated disease and antibiotic stewardship, and Mark Dunning, head of internal medicine at Willows and Professor of Internal Medicine at the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham.
