North Downs Specialist Referrals is celebrating the success of two of its clinicians after they passed their exams to become European Specialists in Veterinary Ophthalmology.

Andra-Elena Enache and Savina Gogova join the head of service Richard Everson, an RCVS and European Recognised Specialist, to form one of the strongest ophthalmology teams in the UK. 

Richard said: “It is fabulous that Andra and Savina were both successful in their specialist examinations. 

“Of course, we already knew their expertise but passing the examination requires not just an unparalleled knowledge of their subject but also the constitution that allows them to prove their knowledge, skills and professionalism in the crucible of the examination environment. 

“For both Andra and Savina to pass at the first time of asking is remarkable and just confirms their brilliance. It’s also a big boost for NDSR. 

“Having three internationally-recognised specialists in ophthalmology in one hospital makes the service so much more resilient; for example, we will never have to close due to annual leave or lecturing commitments. 

“This strength in depth means we really can offer the best possible service to our referring vets and poorly pets.”
