Amy Thorne

Head Receptionist

I’ve been a qualified veterinary nurse for over 22 years. I love every aspect of my job, with experience in referrals, teaching student veterinary nurses, emergency and critical care, working as part of our dedicated dispensary team and more recently as head receptionist. Out of work I enjoy keeping fit, cooking and walking my lurcher Alan. I also have two daughters Florrie and Ava and two cats called Toby and Albie.

Rachel joined the team at Newnham Court as receptionist in August 2018. She comes from a strong customer service background and enjoys greeting our lovely clients and their pets! Rachel has two cats (Coco & Mocha), two leopard geckos (Bailey & Ditto) and a corn snake called Coral.

After working for 5 years as a Teaching Assistant in a local school, I then joined the Newnham Court Veterinary team in 2020 as a Receptionist.  This is, by far, the best job I have ever had, especially meeting our lovely clients and their scrummy pets!  

In my spare time, I like to go on long walks with my dogs, Bob and George (who is very naughty) I love a shopping spree with my two daughters.   I have a passion for music, and love to go to gigs and concerts with my husband and friends.

I have always loved animals since I can remember and was delighted to join the Newnham Court family in 2020! The best part of my job is greeting our clients and their lovely pets everyday. 

I have a few different animals at home to care for, including my rescue dog Rosie and a small group of quails. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, baking and countryside walks. 


Laurren Cruttenden


Laurren joined NCVH in Sept 2021 as a Receptionist, bringing with her 15 years of Veterinary experience.

Working with us part time and having a 6 year old certainly keeps her busy.

In her free time Laurren loves taking her Labrador Cherry to weekly agility classes.

I’m Emily, I have wanted to work with animals for as long as I can remember, and joined the Newnham Court Team in February 2022. I am part of the reception team and have enjoyed getting to know all of the lovely animals who come in. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my friends as well as going home to see my family’s pets and taking my parent’s dogs for walks.
