My name is Jo Maxwell and I am delighted to be joining the team at The Firs Veterinary Surgery as Clinical Director.
I grew up in Hartford and qualified from The University of Liverpool in 2012 having trained to be a Vet as a second degree. I have grown up within the Willows Vet Group (started out as a kennel assistant aged 15!) and after spending four years in practices in and around the North West post qualifying, I have spent the last five years working at The Willows Veterinary Hospital in Hartford where many of you may have come across me if we’ve ever had to hospitalise one of your pets. I have gained a huge amount of experience there over the years and hope to bring that with me to The Firs.
As a student I always said I would like to be the Vet that the clients would like to see and the nurses want to work with, and I like to think I’ve achieved that over the years. I am very much a GP vet and enjoy both medicine and surgery, but what I am very passionate about is working with people and their pets to work out the best treatment plan for every individual, whatever the circumstances. I always feel privileged to witness the bond people have with their pets as I know how much my pets mean and have meant to me.
Outside of work I have a very lovable yellow Labrador who goes by the name of Alfie and is very much my sidekick! He thinks everyone should be his friend and never fails to put a smile on people’s faces with his enthusiasm for life!
In my free time I love spending time with my family and getting out and about walking and exploring the beautiful countryside the north west has to offer.
I am really looking forward to getting to know the award winning team at The Firs and meeting all of the clients and their pets! See you all soon!

From nail trimming, vaccinations and neutering to check-ups and nurse clinics we’ve got it covered. And if you’re looking for something a little different, we also offer Acupuncture sessions with one of our highly experiences vets.

And for added peace of mind, our practice carries the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Small Animal Practice accreditation. This, with our wealth of experience, makes us the trusted choice for your pet.

Please respect our team
Covid has had a huge impact on our sector which means that we have fewer appointment times and fewer vets to look after an increased demand for our services.
Whilst the majority of clients understand the measures we are taking to ensure we can remain open, a small minority are verbally abusing our team members.
This will not be tolerated, and, if we feel your behaviour is unacceptable, we reserve the right to end the telephone conversation or ask you to leave the premises.
Emergency care must take priority but we will, as always, do our best to help
Thank you for your understanding
