WILLIAM SINCLAIR BVMS MRCVS
CLINICAL DIRECTOR and VETERINARY SURGEON
William Sinclair is our designated dentist, being enthusiastic about this smelly branch of veterinary practice that others tend to avoid. As well as being Ivybank Vet's most experienced vet (which is a nice way of saying he's been practising longer than any of the others!) he is our Safety Officer, Fire Officer and Radiation Protection Supervisor. It's the only way he can order people about and get away with it. He and Eileen married in 1979 and recently became very proud grandparents. In his spare time he is involved in the Folk Music scene in Ayrshire, compering at Irvine Folk Club http://irvinefolkclub.co.uk and occasionally performing at other clubs in the area.
EILEEN SINCLAIR BVMS MRVCS

Eileen Sinclair took time out from practice to do the family thing but has been deeply involved in the development and running of Ivybank since 1986. Her clinical interests include Internal Medicine and Oncology. She is Practice Manager and used her organisational skills in 2005-06 to put together an exhibition of work by artists from all over Scotland marking the 60th Anniversary of the dropping of Atomic Bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. It was shown in Dalmellington, Cumnock, The Tramway (Glasgow) and Helensburgh.
Eileen retired from clinical practice in February 2018.

LINDSAY CALLAN BVetMed MRVCS
I fulfilled my childhood dream and graduated as a vet from the Royal Veterinary College (University of London) in 2015 having also obtained an intercalated BSc(hons) in Bioveterinary Science in 2012. Having spent 7 years in the big smoke it's been great to have returned to my hometown and to have become part of the team at Ivybank!
I currently live in Kilmarnock with my other half and our cat and dog who like to keep us on our toes.
Over the last three years I have been involved in and enjoy all aspects of small animal practice, particularly surgery so I look forward to meeting all your furry friends when you come to visit.
When I don't have a stethoscope around my neck I enjoy attempting to keep fit so I have an excuse to try out some good puds and socialising with family and friends.
GILL KIRKLAND BVMS MRVCS
Gill joined us in 2013. She works on a part-time basis at Irvine and Kilwinning and has a particular interest in ultrasonography.

from Edinburgh Vet School.
MARIE LEVER BVMS MRVCS
Marie Lever is a 2008 graduate of Glasgow Vet School and joined Ivybank in October 2011. Marie has a soft spot for pointers and guinea pigs and always has time for a quick cuddle when puppies come in to the practice. When Marie isn't working you are likely to find her in her kitchen baking up some glorious cakes for the staff to feast on.
DAN LUTZ BVMS MRVCS
Dan Lutz is a 2003 Glasgow Vet School graduate who hails from across the pond. He will be well known to the Village Vets clients, having been based there for over a year prior to the merger and will continue to be based at the West Kilbride and Kilwinning surgeries of the new Ivybank Vets.
LAURA McHARG BVMS MRVCS

ROSEMARY FITZGERALD MVB CertVR CertVA MFHom(Vet) MRVCS
Rosemary Fitzgerald has been a regular stand-in locum at Ivybank for some time. Her extra qualifications in Radiology (X-rays), Anaesthesia, Homeopathy and Veterinary Acupuncture mean that she's much in demand. But because we're so nice to her when she's here instead of somewhere else, she seems to enjoy coming back when we ask. Rosemary is daft about mountains as well as sitting exams and heads for the hills as often as her work and family commitments allow her.
