Ashlea Veterinary Centre was established in November 1994 by Chris and Kirsty Barker,
moving from its original site in Ashley Street to purpose-built on the Port Road
Business Park in early 1998.
Specialising in the care of pet animals, the Centre employs four veterinary surgeons
and four fully qualified veterinary nurses. The Centre has achieved the Investors
in People award on three separate occasions, with the premises having being recognised
as meeting the requirements of the BSAVA and RCVS Practice Standards Schemes in 2003
