Meet the Team

Veterinary Surgeons


Ingrid Stevenson (Clinical Director) BVM&S MRCVS, GP Cert SAM
I am from southern Ireland and qualified in 2007. Since qualifying I have worked in Ireland and spent three years working in Australia, which was an amazing experience. I have been working in companion animal practice in England since 2012, and gained my Certificate in Small Animal Internal medicine in October 2013.  The team at Swadlincote are fantastic to work with and everyone is very dedicated to providing excellent care for our patients. I love animals and my little dog Hobbes lives in Ireland with my Mum.  In my spare time I can be found out running, cycling and or jumping into cold open water for a swim!

Kevin Doyle BVMS MRCVS
I qualified in 1994 from Glasgow University, came to work here in Swadlincote that summer, and stayed here ever since! Both staff and clients are very friendly and easy to work with, and that's why I decided to stay.  I enjoy working here, and like both the medical and surgical aspects of my job.  In my spare time I like to walk, cycle and occasionally do the odd track day at Oulton Park, and of course Donington Park.


Since qualifying from the University of Edinburgh in 2007 I have worked in mixed animal practice and in an emergency critical care within a referral hospital environment.  I have also done charity veterinary work, both home and abroad, including a month long stint in Rajasthan, India. During my stay there I was working as a veterinary volunteer, treating local villagers pets and farm animals, as well as treating hundreds of stray dogs, goats and cows.  I like to be kept busy!

In May 2015 I started working towards a specialist certificate in Veterinary Opthalmology – an area which fascinates me and I love the challenges that eyes cases bring on a daily basis.  Outside of work my husband and I have a two year old daughter and two rescue dogs, who keep us on our toes!

I am the head nurse and have been working at Swadlincote Veterinary Centre since 1999. I thoroughly enjoy my job, working with animals and the challenges that come with it.  In my spare time I enjoy swimming and body combat, I love exercise! I have a daughter who I spend most of my time with and who keeps me on my toes.  I also have a dog, two cats and two guinea pigs, so its always busy!

Chris Jameison RVN
I have been qualified since 2003 and I love all aspects of my job, especially laboratory work. I no longer have any pets after losing my beautiful labrador 'Echo' but I have have two young children, both boys so coming to work keeps me sane! (parents of boys will understand) My main hobby is baking and cake decorating, the most recent one being a mega Lego creation, which went down a treat!

Reception Staff

Kay Sidle (Administration Manager)
I am the Administration Manager and have been working at Swadlincote Veterinary Centre for many years now.

Sarah Allcock
I worked as a qualified veterinary nurse for many years in Worcester before I became a full time Mum to my three 'spirited' children! I joined the team in February working as a part time receptionist in the branch surgeries at Melbourne and Ashby, which is great. I have really enjoyed getting back working with animals again, never a dull day!

Gill Welch
I joined the reception team at the end of June 2015, working mainly at the Melbourne and Ashby surgeries.  As an owner of a cocker spaniel I understand the ups and downs of being a pet owner and I now love being part of a team that have been there for me over many years.
