Scott is the Surgical Specialist who heads the team at frank.. After graduating from Glasgow University Vet school in 2001 his first job was as a Temporary Veterinary Inspector during the Foot and Mouth epidemic of that year. He then spent six years in general practice, both mixed and small animal, before moving to Croft Veterinary Hospital in Northumberland to work with Malcolm Ness and undertake an ECVS Residency. He completed his RCVS Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2009, became a European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery in 2013 and an RCVS Recognised Specialist in 2014.

In 2013 Scott moved to North Downs Specialist Referrals, a large multidisciplinary referral hospital based in Surrey, before moving to Willows Referral Services in Solihull in 2015, which is one of the largest multidisciplinary referral hospitals in Europe.

Scott is actively involved in clinical research and CPD provision. He has published extensively in the veterinary literature and has lectured widely in the UK, Europe, USA and Australasia.

He left Willows in 2017 to pursue his dream of establishing his own surgical referral hospital with the aim of working in partnership with local vets to provide accessible veterinary specialist surgery to the pet owners of Yorkshire and beyond.

This dream has resulted in frank. Pet Surgeons.
