Branch Co-ordinator

Cristina Paterson behind reception.

I’m based at our Stocksfield branch, having joined the team in 2006. Since then I have not looked back, this is my dream job. I love getting to know and helping our clients and fussing over their pets. My veterinary knowledge has grown enormously during my time at Orchard House, I love to help the vets whenever I can.

I have two mischievous Labradors called Hattie and Maggie May.

What we say:

Cris is a wonderful veterinary receptionist. In 2020 Cris won the BVRA (British Veterinary Receptionist Association) receptionist of the year award and we couldn’t be more proud. Cris stands for everything we aim for as a practice. Hard working, dedicated, passionate, caring and will go above and beyond for every client and member of staff.
