Veterinary Surgeons

Our Staff

Peter Wright, BVSc, MRCVS, Partner

Peter qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1981 and has worked at Skeldale for longer than he cares to admit!  He worked with Alf Wight and Donald Sinclair, the original James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon, and enjoys telling the younger vets tales from his time with them which leaves them wondering if he ever made an appearance in the James Herriot books!  Peter enjoys small animal internal medicine as well as equine work, but is also regularly seen out on farm visits.  When not working, Peter enjoys playing Bridge, gardening, takes part in tractor rallies, and spending time with his family.

Tim Yates, BVSc, MRCVS, Partner

Tim qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1984 and aside from being a practice partner is also our go-to “Mr. Fix-It” if anything breaks down.  He is an active family man and enjoys both watching and playing rugby.  He is a skilled surgeon, performing both routine procedures and emergency surgeries.  Like Peter, Tim also worked with Alf Wight and Donald Sinclair and if pressed has many great stories to tell!

Sarah Beckerlegge, BSc, BVM&S, MRCVS

Sarah qualified from The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in Edinburgh in 2010 after receiving a BSc in Animal Sciences from Rutgers University in America.  Sarah joined the Skeldale team in 2013 after spending several years in equine ambulatory practice.  Sarah enjoys walking with her three dogs with her family, photography, and spending time with her family.  Professionally, Sarah is interested in small animal medicine, and also developing the vet/client bond.  Sarah spends a lot of time "behind the scenes" at the practice, organising the team and keeping us all up to date.
