New Clinical Director Appointment

We’re delighted to announce that Will McFadzean has taken over as Clinical Director.  Will is a familiar face to many as he has been with the hospital team for the last seven years.

He takes over from Nele Van den Steen, who we’re delighted to say continues with us as an Internal Medicine Specialist.

Will McFadzeanWill, who is an EBVS® European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia & Analgesia and an RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia will continue to hold the position of Head of Specialist Services.

Will said: “The opportunity to become Clinical Director was one not to be missed. I’d wanted to do it for some time but wanted to stay at Cave, so all the pieces fitted the puzzle.

“Cave’s a fantastic place to work with a young, dynamic team providing new thinking and new techniques.

“It’s a very close team which is something I’d like to focus on, enabling the hospital progresses even further to the benefit of patients and clients.”

Will is also keen to engage and provide further support to referring vets, as he has experience of the demands faced by colleagues in the wider profession.

He was also keen to praise his predecessor, and added: “Nele has done a fantastic job making Cave one of the leading veterinary referral hospitals, not just in the South West but the whole of the UK and even further afield.

“Cave is now firmly established as providing pioneering treatment techniques, offering the utmost care to patients and clients and a supportive environment for all team members. I will do my very best to expand on this.”
