We are a small independant veterinary practice in South West London. There is only one of us… We’re proud to boast that we are a well established practice at the heart of the community in Norbury caring for its pets and their families for over 30 years. Over the years we’ve worked hard to build a practice to be proud of offering all modern facilities and services, always striving to do exceptional work that our clients and their pets can benefit from.
Our clients often comment on how friendly and relaxed the surgery is, with such a community feel about it. Our team are committed to providing outstanding patient and client care and we are known for the care and attention we offer always prepared to go that extra mile. You’ll find we’re small but consistant and dedicated in our work because we love what we do and also where we do it. Both working and living in this community means we want to be a part of your pets life, ensuring they remain in optimal health from the very early years to later in old age, doing all we can to help them and you have the best possible chance of enjoying very many happy and healthy years together.

Quite simply, its Quality Care, Because We Care.
Nicola Gurrin – Veterinary Surgeon (MRCVS)
Hi I’m Nicky and I am the vet at Norbury Pet Health Centre. I graduated from Cambridge vet school in July 2000 and then moved from my roots in North West London to join the team at Norbury as an assistant vet in the November. It didn’t take me very long to settle in and so have been living and working here in Norbury ever since. I live with my partner Harry (a sparky) as well as Nikita and Lupo my disobedient and unruly huskies! I couldn’t be without them but they definitely know how to test my patience.
I had no intention of running my own surgery until Mr. Ross (the previous owner and senior vet at Norbury), announced his plans to retired June 2006. Since then I had no desire to move home or change job, it seemed the logical next step to put in an offer and so here I am, with a few more grey hairs but still enjoying all the new challenges I am faced with every day.
My outside-of-work interests include music and aerobics. Some of you may know me from Nuffield Gym over the road, teaching aerobics or boxing-fit. Anyway, I feel blessed to be in a profession that I truly love. It can be a very stressful job but also very rewarding so I would not want to be doing anything else!
Adam van den Broek (MRCVS)
I qualified in 1999 in Edinburgh and have spent most of the time since working in London with small animals. I enjoy all aspects of general practice, but have a particular interest in ultrasound and soft tissue surgery.
I have 5 dogs- 4 English Cocker Spaniels and an English Setter which keep me busy, and split my time between London and West Wales. When not at work, I love spending time on the coast walking, cooking, and gardening amongst other things.
Jack Sales – Veterinary Nurse
Hey I’m back! I left NPHC about two years ago and now I’m back for good. Since then I have worked in many vet surgeries around the London area and have gained loads of experience and knowledge. I have two cats, one called Mowgli and the other Bruce. I also have a dog called Foster who is quite the handful!
Anyway I’m glad to be back with the team again.
haylee Gubbins – Veterinary Nurse
Hello my name is Haylee and the newest member of the NPHC Team!
I am a registered Veterinary Nurse and have been working in practice for nearly 10 years. I studied at Hadlow college where I received my level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing.
I had always loved being around animals from a young age, be it family pets or when I used to volunteer at Foal Farm animal rescue center in Biggin Hill.
I honestly couldn’t imagine doing any other job, I love nursing and caring for clients animals. I have a interest in Ultrasound and thoroughly enjoyed the practical side of my job either in surgery or taking blood tests or placing intravenous catheters for fluid therapy.
It is safe to say I love my job!
