  • lynwood


    Senior Clinical Director


    Duncan is following in the footsteps of his great, great grandfather, also a vet, and still has his walking stick and old equipment. He grew up surrounded by horses, and worked in dog rescue centres and on farms before qualifying as a vet in 1998. He joined the team in 2004, attained his certificate in small animal medicine in 2008 and became a partner in 2010. Outside of work he plays a strange variety of musical instruments and is a modestly gifted tenor – as well as the enthusiastic founder of Fordingbridge Astronomers!

Outside of work, Rebecca has a son who has got her into exploring the local areas by bike, and she loves playing her saxophone in local bands.

    Group Head Nurse & Nursing Manager


    Carrie joined Lynwood in 2018, having worked at nearby Burrows for 17 years.
    As chief flag waver and promoter of all things Veterinary Nurse, Carrie has fewer opportunities to enjoy time in theatre which was always a passion and highlight in her career. However, she will always find time for clients and colleagues alike to discuss and share her experience and knowledge of raw feeding, appropriate neutering and breeding/welfare regulations. She is a self-confessed mad dog lady having six of her own at home who she loves to explore the countryside with. When not covered in mud and dog hair Carrie can be found socialising with friends, enjoying small batch artisan gins and planning her next trip to see the world!
