Meet The Nursing Staff
Helen McEntee RVN, Head Nurse
Helen is the most recent member of the team who has joined as Head Nurse. Her clinical expertise lies within emergency and critical care as she has been working for the PDSA for the past 18 years! However, after meeting Martyn she felt the need to settle a bit more. So, they moved from the city 2 years ago and into the surrounding hills to enjoy the thrills of their absolute passion of mountain biking. Helen does this most weekends but when she isn’t able to, she tends to her rather large freshwater aquarium instead!
Helen is conscientious and a very hard worker. She believes in looking after the team here at Hunts and has settled in exceptionally well. In her own words ……”I’ve truly landed on my feet getting this job! David genuinely cares about the patients, clients and the staff and the whole team are focused on animal welfare and an extremely high standard of care.I definitely see a future here working for Hunts Veterinary Clinics and can’t wait to really blossom and start to make a difference!”
