Meet Our Banchory Team
|Chris Wiper MRCVS, Practice Partner|
Born and brought up in Lancashire with a farming background, I graduated from Liverpool University in 1974 and worked first in the Lake District. I always wanted to live in Scotland so moved to Orkney a year later, where I started my own practice.
|Liz Geraerts, Practice Partner|
|I have been with Town and Country Veterinary Group since it started back in 1987 at the Rubislaw surgery. Prior to that I worked in Orkney for ten years, so although I originally came from London, I think of myself as an adopted Scot.
My career started with mainly cattle work, then developed more into domestic pets but for the last few years I have become increasingly involved in the administrative side of the practice and spend much of my time in the office.
Outside of work I enjoy walking, wildlife, travelling, cooking and reading.
|Neil Cockburn MRCVS, Veterinary Surgeon|
|I have worked for the Town and Country Veterinary Group since 1998, having previously worked for 9 years in a mixed practice in Grantown-on-Spey. My clinical interests include opthalmology, orthopaedics and general surgery.
I am married, and live in Banchory with my wife, two daughters and our Jack Russell terrier Isla.
When not at work, I like to spend time in the hills (the further North West the better), where I enjoy walking, camping, climbing, trout fishing and occasional sailing.
