Eleanor Hancox VTS (Anesthesia/Analgesia) RVN
Anaesthesia Nurse, Sarah Smith Cardiology Referrals
Eleanor started her VN training in 1996, qualifying with credit in 1999. She worked in a primarily first opinion practice in Derby until 2011 when she moved to Pride Veterinary Centre, with a diploma led referral service.
Working alongside Veterinary Anaesthetists inspired her to learn more about anaesthesia and she soon realised that nurses could have much more involvement in improving patient safety.
Eleanor gained the VTS(anesthesia and analgesia) in 2014. Whilst working towards this she developed an interest in cardio respiratory medicine and currently work for Sarah Smith Cardiology.
