Westpoint Launceston is a modern, dedicated livestock veterinary practice providing a comprehensive range of health-orientated services to farms in and around the Launceston area.
The practice consists of a combination of high quality experienced farm vets on the ground who have easy access to the specialist knowledge of consultants throughout the group, as well as to Biobest Laboratories for fast, accurate laboratory analysis.
At Westpoint we firmly believe that farm efficiency and profitability is driven by animal health. We aim to provide farmers with the best clinical and advisory services in order to maximise the health and productivity of their livestock.
Westpoint believe in supplying medicines at the best prices, ensuring that the price of the product does not prevent the most appropriate treatment or control programme from being adopted.
Our mobile paraprofessional team gives farmers skilled on-farm support work from foot trimming to vaccination, and we also run training courses and workshops covering key areas such as Five Point Dutch foot trimming and AI.

Originally from a beef and sheep farm in Cumbria, Lesley graduated from Edinburgh University in 2007 and moved to Devon to start her career in mixed practice. After 2 years she decided to focus on farm work and joined Westpoint at their Launceston practice in October 2009.
Lesley has particular interests in beef and sheep preventative and herd medicine. As part of this she has implemented Profit Improvement Plans (PIPs) for several of our beef and sheep clients to aid a more proactive approach on these farms. She is a trained DairyCo mastitis plan deliverer, working with dairy clients to reduce mastitis and cell count levels.
When she is not working Lesley enjoys playing hockey and walking on the moors with her dogs.
Jon graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and joined the Westpoint Sevenoaks practice in July 2011 to undertake an internship in farm animal practice in association with the RVC. On completion of his internship he stayed on at Sevenoaks and became one of their senior vets. Jon has now moved to the Launceston practice - the area where he grew up.
Jon enjoys all aspects of farm animal practice but has particular clinical interests in infectious disease and mobility.
Being a dairy farmer's son, Jon enjoys spending time outside in the country and (attempting) to keep fit.
Candice graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in July 2016. Born and bred in Somerset she had a keen desire to return to work in the South West, particularly with the varied cattle and sheep work on offer in the area. Candice has a particular interest in pathology and infectious diseases.
In her spare time she enjoys reading, baking and exploring the English countryside and coastlines with or without four-legged friends in tow. She also enjoys most sports, having been a member of the rowing, cycling and football teams whilst at university.
