Westpoint Daventry is a modern, dedicated livestock veterinary practice providing a comprehensive range of health-orientated services to farms in and around Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire and Buckinghamshire.
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.

Jessica graduated from Cambridge Vet School in 2011. She worked in mixed practice in Hampshire for a short period before being enlisted for the Westpoint Internship based at Winchester. She has since worked for the Leighton Buzzard and Chelmsford branches before being given the opportunity to set up the Daventry office in 2014. From just a handful of clients and a one man band, this practice has grown to a successful 3.5 vet practice with a thriving client base. Jessica completed her CertAVP, focussing on bovine modules in 2017 and is always keen to expand her knowledge base. As one of the Bull Fertility Testers and Export Vets for Westpoint, she is kept busy at all times.
Jessica lives with her husband, son, parents and beloved boxer dog ‘Squid’. Out of work she enjoys keeping fit (she is often found training for a ridiculous endurance event), travelling and socialising.
Alex joined Westpoint in March 2017. She studied Veterinary Science at the University of Liverpool, graduating in 2012. Having grown up in Bedfordshire she took her first job at a mixed practice in Bedford. After a short spell, Alex moved to Shropshire to pursue a career working solely with large animals. Here she gained much experience working with dairies, beef farms and more seasonally, sheep farms. Alex moved to Buckinghamshire to be closer to her family and was very pleased to find she could continue working with farm animals using the knowledge she had gained in Shropshire.
Alex is passionate about infectious disease control. She also enjoys fertility, surgery and finds rotten calvings strangely satisfying! She currently works part-time for Daventry and Leighton Buzzard branches. When she is not at work she enjoys gardening, walking her dog and spending quality time with her husband and daughter.
Alba graduated from the university of Cardenal Herrera, Valencia, Spain in 2012. A brief stint doing abattoir and APHA work in the UK started off Alba's British career, followed up by working for farm animal practices in Shropshire, Worcestershire and Cornwall. Alba's time in Shropshire and Worcestershire saw the development of her surgical skills, becoming quite a passion of hers. She is also very keen on working with small ruminants and is part of the clinical working group within Westpoint that looks to be on the forefront of sheep, camelid and goat knowledge. Alba has a keen interest in wildlife and has spent time in Malawi working in wildlife reserves, studying baboons.
Alba has been keen to work for Westpoint Daventry for a while, with her partner being local to the area. Finally an opportunity came up in 2017 for her to join the team. Out of work you will find Alba playing tennis or spending time with friends.

Niamh is particularly interested in beef cattle and enjoys obstetrical and surgical procedures (most of the time!). She is a trained TB Advisory Service Advisor to deliver on-farm visits and advice regarding bovine tuberculosis. Niamh would like BVD free status’ to be achieved in England.
In her spare time, Niamh likes to event horses, keep fit and is a Munster rugby fan.
