Launceston


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.

    Charlie graduated from the RVC in 2018 and joined the internship program. She enjoys all aspects of farm practice but is especially interested in infectious diseases and herd health planning. She has a small flock of Greyface Dartmoor sheep back on her partner’s farm in Hampshire which she’s hoping to show in the not too distant future and was excited to see a Dartmoor class at the Royal Cornwall Show.

    Outside of work Charlie enjoys playing rugby, walking and hopes to take up paddle boarding.
