Louise Critchley

Well done to Laura in achieving such excellent results and winning the A1 Locums award for 2016.

Laura graduated from Harper Adams University with a first class honours degree and is currently covering a locum maternity role Wicstun Veterinary group in Market Weighton, Yorkshire, which is a mixed practice. Her plan is to save up and eventually travel and work abroad, potentially in Australia. Laura would like to do some work with wild animals, or work on 'neuter and release' programme, whilst travelling. In her final year at Harpers, she was course rep, enjoying organizing events for special veterinary students.

Her main passion is nursing and she is now surgical nursing and she has commented that being scrubbed up is one of her favourite jobs as a veterinary nurse.

As a student Laura was a highly motivated and dedicated student, very popular with her peers and staff. Her dissertation was titled 'Investigation into whether the provision of post-operative care information to clients at the time of patient admission benefits the patients aftercare'.
