The Practice - how it all began

Vets on White Hart Lane

The roots of this independent veterinary practice in Barnes were formed many years ago. After starting as a small branch surgery next to the Sun Inn, we have been at the White Hart Lane premises since 1979. The former owner Reg Balmer MRCVS, completely refurbished and extended the building in 1995/96 to create the practice as it is today.

Following Reg's retirement in January 2002, his associate vets Katy Horton BVetMed MRCVS and Simon Kent BVSc CertVC MRCVS, formed a partnership to take over the surgery. Katy and Simon's knowledge, experience and enthusiasm, have ensured continuity and enabled this well-established veterinary practice to remain serving the animal community of Barnes.

Our aim is to provide comprehensive healthcare for our patients and to that end we maintain a high standard of equipment and training. All professional staff attend regular courses to keep up to date with current developments.
