In recent years Chris has been leading the small animal team at Westover’s North Walsham surgery; he has a particular interest in medicine and often goes over and above to provide support within the local community through his work.

Chris enjoys spending time with his wife, their grown up children, their two adopted younger children and their grandchildren. They live on a small farm with their dogs, chickens, ducks and pigs, and when not at home Chris can often be found canoeing on the broads or helping out at his church.

He has been a director of Westover Vets since 2014 and has led the practice forward in many ways, including implementing the use of keyhole surgery at their North Walsham surgery.

Cinzia Tognocchi

Veterinary Surgeon

I come from Tuscany, Italy. I graduated from the University of Pisa in March 2014. Following university, I lived in Australia for 10 months. During this time I was able to deepen my knowledge in equine reproduction.

After this experience, I came back to Italy to start my career with small animals. I have a keen interest in diagnostic imaging, cardiology, internal medicine and reproduction.

In July 2019, I became a member of the Caister Vets team. I am a very friendly, compassionate and enthusiastic vet. I would like to continue to widen my knowledge in diagnostic imaging and/or in cardiology as part of the team.

I live in Norfolk with my husband Lorenzo, also a vet at the Westover North Walsham branch. I like spending my leisure time exploring the Norfolk area, cooking, walking, taking pictures, going to the cinema and theatre, travelling in general and learning about new cultures.

Simon Bewsey-Dyke

Veterinary Surgeon

I grew up on the island of Guernsey and took a somewhat circuitous route into veterinary medicine, having initially worked in the marine industry as a yacht skipper. After spending several years bobbing around on boats in various sunny and agreeable places, I eventually decided to get a real job and follow in my mother’s footsteps to become a vet.

I attended Cambridge University where I met my lovely wife Lizzie, also a vet, and after six halcyon years eventually graduated in 2014. Following university, we spent time working in mixed practice in the Westcountry and back in the Channel Islands before deciding to move to Norfolk to settle down and start a family – our first son, Rupert, joined us soon afterwards.

I love getting out and exploring the Norfolk countryside and coast – often in the company of my loony dog, Douglas, whose main interest is attempting to personally greet every pheasant in the county. I still love messing around on boats and generally galloping around on horses. Professionally I have a keen interest in surgery and anaesthesia, and am currently undertaking a certificate in surgery to further develop my skills.



Simon qualified as a vet in 2016. Although originally from Northern Ireland, he chose the sunny Norfolk coast to practice and has loved it ever since.
Simon enjoys all aspects of veterinary life but has a special interest in surgery and orthopaedics for which he is currently completing a certificate in advanced surgical techniques.

Harriet Will

Veterinary Surgeon

Harriet grew up south east of Norwich and has always had multiple pets at home including dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens! She qualified from the University of Nottingham in 2018 and has been part of the Caister Vets team ever since.

Harriet is an enthusiastic and compassionate vet. She has a special interest in dermatology and can often be found looking through the microscope at slides from itchy pets.

Harriet loves music and has played and sang in a variety of orchestras and choirs in her spare time. She also enjoys baking, swimming, travel, and spending time with her friends and family.

Helen Boast

Veterinary Surgeon

Helen graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2008, and after a short stint in mixed practice in Lincolnshire she joined the large animal team at Westover Vets where she stayed for 7 years.  Wrestling with the cows and horses of Norfolk took its toll and after too many broken bones, Helen decided that small animal practice was a much better fit for her!  She joined the team at Caister in February 2018 and already feels like part of the furniture.  Helen enjoys all aspects of small animal practice and has a keen interest in lameness, in particular the treatment of arthritis in pets.  She uses the knowledge gained from equine practice to utilise more advanced therapies for managing this condition.
At home, Helen is married and has a son, she also has two dogs ‘Wiggle’ a border terrier and ‘Dave’ a fox red labrador who can often be spotted around the practice, she also has a small flock of chickens.

Sally Beyer

Head Nurse

Sally has been a qualified veterinary nurse for fifteen years and a head nurse for a large part of that. She is a highly experienced and skilled nurse and enjoys interacting with clients through clinics, in particular weight management clinics. Sally’s favourite part of the job however is looking after the animals in her care; she is extremely compassionate and sensitive to their needs.

Since qualifying Sally has undertaken further courses including the assessor qualification to train student nurses and a level 5 certificate in leadership and management.

Outside of work Sally is often found at the stables looking after and riding her horse. She is an accomplished rider and has competed in BSJA and British Dressage. Sally also has a rescue cat who having been brought in by the Cats Protection League found a happy permanent home with her.
