About Us

Learn more about Amical Veterinary Centre in March

Amical Veterinary Centre was established in 1989, by Elaine Stuttard, BVMS, MRCVS, with the aim of providing a high standard of patient and client care in modern, well equipped premises.

Dr Nick Valley DVM MSc MRCVS, took over the practice in 2001. Amical Veterinary Centre is an approved veterinary nurse training centre and in 2005 it was awarded a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Tier 2 Accredited Practice Standards Award.

We have a team of 6 Veterinary Surgeons, 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses. Several staff members have been part of the team for a considerable time. Mr Craig Joly BVMS CertVC MRCVS and Vanessa Grange RVN have been with Amical in excess of 30 years and Dr Nick Valley has been part of the team for over 20 years. Nurses Laura Dickens RVN and Michaela Hinson RVN have been part of the team for over 10 years. This continuity provides our clients with a sense of stability and the knowledge that they can always request the same vet and have continuity of care for their pets.

We aim to provide the highest level of medical and surgical care in a professional and friendly environment.


Our purpose built, modern practice has excellent facilities and a range of modern diagnostic equipment, which includes:


  • in-house laboratory
