Valerie McCarthy

Admin Manager

Valerie has worked at the surgery for more years than she cares to remember, originally working for the previous vet, John Dunton, before he retired. She moved to Dorset from London, where, prior to having her son, Ben, she worked for the BBC, variously as a Production Assistant, Scriptwriter and Producer in children’s radio, her claim to fame being that she was the last Producer to work on Radio 4’s Listen With Mother before its demise in 1982.

She now lives in West Moors where she and her partner, Bob, have a very special tabby and white cat called Polly, and two crossbreed rescue dogs, Phoebe and Sky, with whom they enjoy walking the Jurassic coastal paths.
