John qualified in 1986 and worked in two equine biased Practices in the UK before returning to Jersey in 1988, becoming a partner in 1992.We had a scare last year when John received a kick to his shoulder – proving that even the most experienced Vets are at risk when undertaking their duties.  This is just one reason why Hayley keeps on top of things as safety is critical He has a keen interest in all aspects of equine medicine and in particular in endoscopy and internal medicine. He also enjoys the small animal side of the Practice, particularly working dogs!  John has just started to ride again and has recently taken on the role of Practice Manager.

He shares his home with his wife Emma, children Natascha & Leon, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 gerbils and of course horses Paddy and Nelson. When not working he is a keen walker and enjoys boating in the summer and all aspects of snow sports in the winter, especially skiing and dog sledding, and is the chairman of the Jersey Bobsleigh Club.

After qualifying from Bristol Vet School in 1999, Ian moved to Jersey to start his veterinary career. After working at New Era as a locum for 3 months, he joined the team full-time, and has worked here ever since.

Ian strongly believes that New Era offers the best level of care in the Channel Islands, and aims to provide referral level care without pets having to leave the Island. He has therefore obtained post graduate qualifications from the European Society of Practicing Veterinary Surgeons and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in small animal medicine, increasing the range of services we can offer locally. Ian is also responsible for the visits of the mobile MRI scanner and enjoys soft tissue surgery, and working with reptiles, birds and other exotics.

In his spare time, Ian enjoys keeping fit and all sorts of water sports. He is a very keen runner and a member of the local Hash Harriers. When weather permits (and sometimes when it doesn’t!), Ian can often be found exploring the island’s coastline in a kayak. Ian and his wife have a son (Jacob), a daughter (Lydia), 2 cats, and a very bouncy German Pointer, called Theo.
