Small Animal

James Blanshard

Veterinary Surgeon BVM&S MRCVS

I graduated from the R (D) SVS in 2003 and after several years in a mixed practice in the UK I moved to Hong Kong where I spent the next 10 years. I have completed a post graduate training position at the Calgary Zoo and the University of Calgary, Canada and I have done work for various zoological and wildlife institutions as well as cofounding an exotic animal hospital in Hong Kong.

I moved back to the UK in 2015 and I am happy to make Norfolk my home. I very much enjoy all aspects of mixed practice and find the variety of work at Uplands Way Vets to be the best part of the job, as well as the fantastic and very committed team.

In my spare time I like to spend quality time with my lovely wife, baby boy and 2 dogs (who are very well travelled, having lived in Hong Kong, Canada and the UK!)

Amelia Duncanson

Veterinary Surgeon MA BVetMed, MRCVS

Having grown up in North Norfolk I am pleased to be back in the county. I graduated from Cambridge Vet School where I also gained a degree in Zoology. I am now enjoying life in the country and often feel like I’ve walked straight out of a James Heriot novel!

Outside of work I enjoy travelling and playing team sports but can often be seen jogging in fluorescent lycra around the local area. I am yet to choose which type of animal would be my favourite pet so I am enjoying looking after all of yours. I love the variety of work seen at Uplands Way and every day is different from the last.

Janine Healey

Veterinary Surgeon BVM BVS MRCVS

I graduated from Nottingham Veterinary School as a mature post graduate, having previously obtained a degree in Equine Science from the University of Essex. I am pleased to be back in East Anglia after spending time in Derbyshire in mixed practice and really enjoy the variety of animals we see at Uplands, as well as being part of a fantastic team.

When not at work I can be found trying to keep up with my daughter, riding my horse Rhubarb or walking my two weimaraners.

Veterinary Surgeon MRCVS

I graduated in Barcelona in 2000 as a vet and following this began an equine internship. After completing this, I began working as an equine vet in Barcelona, where I stayed until coming over to the UK in 2012. I am predominantly an equine vet but I enjoy seeing small animals too, especially cats as I have one myself called Mali who travelled over from Spain to live with me.
