Angela Byrne BVSc MRCVSVeterinary Surgeon
I have been a small animal practitioner for the last 15 years and thoroughly enjoy my job. I have a 17-year-old Jack Russell Terrier called Frodo Baggins and two young children who certainly keep me on my toes! In my spare time I love playing Women’s Touch Rugby and attending circuit classes. Baking is another love but my waistline may disagree!

Denise SmithPractice Administrator
Denise has been at Broadway longer than anyone and is a fixture behind the desk at Bebington, leading us to believe that, like the Tower of London's ravens, if Denise ever left us then Broadway would surely collapse! She sorts out all of our insurance forms, does the books, and generally keeps us all in line.
