About Sandymoor Vets
Since we opened in 2022 we’ve met so many lovely clients and adorable patients.
In that time, the passion we have for providing the very best service possible has shined through, and our message that we want to be your practice for life has been well received – or at least, that’s what we’re told!
Our practice is locally owned and managed. We think that makes a difference.
It means we’re always looking for ways to improve our practice to create an even better experience for you and your pet. And it means we’re free to create a service that we believe in.
Our practice was purpose built prior to our opening and all of our clients and patients love our bright, open waiting room and top notch facilities.
One way we’re doing that is by embracing technology, offering online booking to make it as easy as possible for you to find an appointment that suits you, and through online enquiry forms, you can order repeat medication, pay bills and chat to our team.
Another is our Star Pet Health Plan, which gives our patients unlimited consultations throughout the year, helping us to build close bonds with our clients and their pets.
If you haven’t met us already, we want to welcome you to pop in and meet us at our practice, located at Sandymoor Green next to Sandymoor Community Centre, where we’re confident that you’ll be happy to meet our fantastic vets, nurses and support team.
Every detail of our practice has been carefully designed to minimise stress in our patients when they visit. If your pet is admitted for treatment you’ll be reassured to know that we have spacious, separate dog and cat wards with soft luxurious bedding to keep them as comfortable as possible.
Minimising stress and anxiety helps to reduce recovery times and boost wellness.
Our digital X-ray suite and ultrasound facilities enable our team to diagnose health conditions and recommend the best course of treatment.
Our separate, fully equipped, sterile operating theatre means we undertake a wide range of surgical procedures without causing you the stress of having to transport your pet to another veterinary practice - this is just one of the many reasons our clients travel hundreds of miles to see our highly experienced veterinary surgeons.
As part of the £450,000 investment in creating a practice you and your pet will love, we have a high tech laboratory including hematology and urinalysis equipment - this means our team can give you results in hours rather than days.
Our clients love that we provide them with regular updates via phone and email to keep them informed.
We have a spacious, free car park for all clients so you can park right outside the door.
Our location on Sandymoor Green means there is plenty of space to exercise your dog or why not ask one of the team and we’ll direct you to some fabulous local dog walks on our doorstep.
Meet the Team
Dr Becky Crossfield
Becky graduated from Liverpool University in 2014, and spent time in a small animal practice in Cheshire, where she worked to further develop her veterinary skills.
She loves her rewarding and exciting work, and her dream job from when she was small has lived up to expectations!
At home she has Pippa the Labradoodle and three rats – Cece, Popcorn and Donkey. In her spare time she enjoys walks with her family and paddleboarding, which Pippa enjoys alongside her on the board!
Dr Sean Cleary
Sean graduated in New Zealand and spent three years in mixed practice before moving with his family to Warrington in 2002.
He has worked in small animal practice ever since, firstly at Beech House Vets in Warrington, and then as senior small animal partner at the Willows Veterinary Group. He has a particular interest in Shar Peis, and his reputation in the field attracts clients from across the country. He enjoys working in a practice he can call his own, with the freedom to make decisions to benefit his patients and his team.
At home he has a cockerpoo, Tane, and a cat, Maui, as well as five children, who keep him busy as a taxi service!
Dr Niall Armstrong
Niall graduated from Nottingham Veterinary School in 2017, and started his career at a mixed practice in Huddersfield. He joined the team in 2023 having gained a postgraduate certificate in diagnostic imaging as well as training in veterinary acupuncture.
At home he has two dogs, Watson the cockapoo and Bramble the lurcher, whose favourite activities are long walks in the Peaks and waking the family up at 5am for breakfast! He enjoys running – sometimes with his young daughter joining in her pram! – and supporting Welsh rugby.
Head Veterinary Nurse
Rachel joined our team in 2022, after spending the last three years working in a busy, charity-ran veterinary hospital in Liverpool, where she managed a team of 10 nurses.
She loves all aspects of her role, but has a particular interest in emergency and critical care. At home, she has a crazy Staffy, Leo, who keeps her busy with his bouncy attitude, and she loves taking him out on walks with their friends.
Other hobbies include spending time with her family, going to the gym and having movie nights with lots of snacks – especially if it’s a Harry Potter film!
Registered Veterinary Nurse
At home she has two dogs, a Staffie husky cross called Nala, and Finn the French bulldog. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family and dogs, as well as anything that involves speed or heights!
Registered Veterinary Nurse
She was a client at Sandymoor before she joined with her three cats: Raffey, Pixie and Winnie. In her spare time she enjoys going for walks, trips to the cinema and generally having fun with her family.
Before joining the Sandymoor team ahead of our launch, Donna spent time as a branch manager in an opticians, as well as managing locum cover across pharmacies.
Across all of her experience she has enjoyed meeting new people and working in a team to provide the best possible service.
She is pet parent to Lola the cockapoo, who loves cuddles and days out to the beach. In her spare time she loves socialising with friends and family, and taking Lola out to explore new places.
Demi joined the team in 2023 having previously worked on reception for Britannia Hotels, where her role included working with housing officers and supporting asylum seekers. She loves being on the front desk and meeting all of our clients and their furry friends.
At home she has two dogs, Bella the shih tzu who has an ongoing battle with the squirrels in the garden, and Billy the cheeky pug. Her favourite pastime is reading and her ideal weekend would involve a book in a beautiful spot with her dogs – until they started snoring!
Receptionist and Animal Care Assistant
Charlotte graduated in 2016 with an English degree before completing a PGCE in primary education. Since then she has worked writing listings for AirBnB properties, and that focus on customer service and making people happy, plus her love of animals, led her to our team.
At home she has a pug called Archie who loves eating, sleeping and cuddles. Her hobbies include travelling – her favourite country so far is Japan, which she says is like visiting the future! – persuading Archie to go for walks and watching Wrexham FC with her dad.

When we tell our clients that we’re their practice for life we mean it – and that applies to our team members too.
With an experienced team and ambitious growth plans to open a network of practices around the North West, we offer talented vets, nurses and front of house specialists the opportunity to take ownership over how they build their careers, and we support the right people in opening and growing their own practice.
Put simply, there is no career in veterinary practice that our group won’t be able to support, and there’s no role you could imagine that we won’t be able to provide. The future really is that bright, as we build our group across the North West.
