The Team

Richard Nolan

After a year in Lancashire he settled into Tarvin where he has been for 27 years. During that time he has treated all species but in recent years become increasingly focussed on family pets. He considers a strong personal bond between a vet and both the patient and their owner to be an important aspect of successful care in first opinion practice.
