Meet the Staff

The reputation and success of Vale Wildlife Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre is only made possible

because of the hard work and dedication of the staff and volunteers who work within the organisation.

As we are open 24/7, 365 days a year we have to employ a large team to enable us to offer the best

care possible round the clock to every animal that is admitted:


Caroline Gould  –  Charity Founder

Jeff Wood  –  Assistant Manager

Tim Partridge BVSc, MRCVS  –  Veterinary Surgeon

Lydia Parry RVN  –  Veterinary Nurse

Dean Harrison  –  Supervisor

Martin Brookes  –  Facilities Manager

George Brotherton  –  Manager of our charity shop in Evesham

We also couldn’t do without our team of full-time and  part-time Wildlife 

Care Assistants, responsible for the 24/7 hands-on care of our casualties.

Although we rely on the help of volunteers every day, we need enough fully trained, experienced staff to be

able to give the professional care necessary to rehabilitate over 6,500 casualties every year, 24 hours a

day, 365 days a year.

The trustees of the charity are (alphabetically):

Billy Chapman-Smith, Ann Cobley, Gary Lockwood, Sally Lockwood, Eileen Walthall and Karen


Our patrons are:

Emma Goodman-Milne – TV Vet

Simon King – Wildlife Film Maker

Nigel Marven – Wildlife TV Presenter

Richard Symonds – Wildlife Artist

Hugh Warwick – Writer, ecologist and self-confessed hedgehog fanatic
