The practice began trading in September 2003 under the banner of Macpherson O’Sullivan LLP when Alistair Macpherson and Tim O’Sullivan took over the farm work from Abbey Vets in Shrewsbury. Alistair and Tim had previously worked together in farm only positions in Cheshire and had seen the benefits a focused farm animal only service could deliver for farmers and for vets. Initially there were two full time vets with Bill Adams helping out on a part time basis. As the practice grew, Roel Driesen joined as an assistant in 2004, and subsequently became a director in 2008 when the practice became a limited company. James Marsden joined the practice in 2007 and in 2012 he became a director.
As the practice grows and TB continues to spread into our once TB free area the decision came to employ one full time TB specific vet, which has grown to 4 TB specific vets and 9 dedicated farm vets, making 13 in total to date.
We now provide veterinary services to dairy, beef, sheep, pig farms and small holders across Shropshire and surrounding areas.
