Francesca joined our South London Vet Team in 2017 after a very impressive career journey so far.

Francesca is an extremely experienced General Practitioner and soft tissue surgeon, now expanding her vast talent to carrying out ultrasound diagnostics within the surgery.
Being an OV Practioner means Francesca is available to give advice and issue passports/export certificates to small animal companions wanting to travel.

Melania joins us this Autumn after working in South London for the past 4 years. Grading in 2012 from Italy, Melania is an excellent GP Vet with a passion for being in the operating theatre. Continuing to progress to a higher level of surgery, Melania is currently studying towards a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons post-graduate certificate in Small Animal Surgery and can often be found studying to further her already excellent knowledge in this particular field. Further qualification will mean that operations some veterinary surgeries would need to refer to another clinic, Melania will be able to perform at both Mayow and Parish Lane Vets. Loving all companion animals, Melania has her very own gorgeous cat, Milu and enjoys living locally with her partner. Away from the surgeries Melania enjoys travelling, reading and skiing.
