Ms. Hannah Cook MVB MRCVS

Hannah

Hi, I’m Hannah, I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College and have been working as a vet at Mote Park Vets since July 2018. I have a particular interest in emergency and critical care cases.

I have 2 cheeky Jack Russells named Poppy and Ralph who are always up to mischief! I look forward to meeting you and your animals!

Franco Cortesini BVetMed PhD MRCVS

Franco

I studied at Perugia Veterinary University in Italy, graduating in 2005. I continued my education with a post-graduate master degree in soft tissue surgery (SCIVAC, Cremona, Italy).
I've spent many nights working at out-of-hours emergency clinics being interested in emergency surgery. I've completed a post-graduate certification in small animal surgery in October 2017 (including advanced soft tissue, advanced emergency and orthopaedic surgery). I'm very interested in diagnostic imaging especially ultrasound.

I love to play tennis and football, and to listen to music.

Mr. Fiachra Fallon MVB MRCVS

Fiachra

Hi I'm Fiachra, I originally come from Co. Offaly in Ireland. During school all I wanted to be was a vet, so I was lucky enough to get into college to study it. I graduated from UCD in Dublin in 2013 and worked in a mixed practice in rural Ireland until January this year. I decided large animal work wasn't for me and life was also a bit quiet there, so I opted for a change! I ended up here in Maidstone and am loving it so far! I brought my 2 cats over with me and they have settled in well. They were both found on the road as kittens and brought into my previous work place, so I adopted them and they are very much enjoying life in Maidstone! I look forward to meeting you all and helping give your pets the care they deserve!

Mr. James Hoare LLB MVB MRCVS

I joined the practice over 28 years ago and apart from some short stints abroad and some locum stints have worked exclusively here over all those years. I gained in addition a law degree with Honours from University of Kent at Canterbury over 10 years ago.

Dr. Corinna McCarthy BSc(Hons) BVetMed PhD MRCVS

Corinna

I'm a graduate of the RVC and I love treating all sorts of animals from dogs to chickens to tortoises. I have a particular soft spot for rabbits, guinea pigs and all small furries. I have a special interest in medicine and cardiology and am currently studying for my Cert AVP. I have a wonderful little cavalier named Elsie and a bunny tyrant overlord named Feisty Bunny. I recently lost Wobbly Cat to heart disease. She is still very missed.

Administration

Michelle Latter

I joined the Mote Park Vet Group 5 years ago as their internal book keeper for the whole group. My workload is very demanding and no two days are the same which makes life more interesting. In my free time I like spending it with my family and friends. I own a white and grey tabby whose name is Storm, this was a gift from my son over 4 years ago, he is certainly full of character.
