We are delighted to welcome anaesthesia clinician Dan Nicholls to our specialist-led team.

Dan joined us earlier this month as part of our industry-leading seven-strong anaesthesia and analgesia team, which is led by RCVS and European specialist Alessandra Mathis.

After graduating from the University of Nottingham in 2015, Dan worked as a GP vet in a busy primary care hospital in Shropshire.

He then went on to undertake a rotating internship at the University of Cambridge, followed by six months as a junior anaesthesia clinician, before completing a residency in anaesthesia and analgesia at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC).

During his residency at the RVC, Dan also completed a Masters in Veterinary Medicine.

Dan said he was delighted to be part of such a strong service at Willows: “I’m delighted to join such an exceptional anaesthesia and analgesia team.

“The reputation of the Willows team for providing first-class care and treatment is renowned across the industry and I’m excited to now be a part of it.

“I have always endeavoured to maximise my skills in order to achieve the best outcome for my patients and I look forward to working alongside this experienced team.”

Head of anaesthesia, Alessandra, said she was delighted to welcome Dan to Willows, adding: “We’re really happy to have Dan on board and I know the team are excited about his arrival.

“Dan brings with him a real passion to learn and develop alongside our world-class team, and I have no doubt he will be a huge asset to Willows.”

Away from work, Dan, who is Black Country born and bred, supports Wolverhampton Wanderers, enjoys cricket and spending time with his excitable working cocker spaniel, Freddie.
