Our Team

Tim Boardman
Qualified from Liverpool University in 1980, Tim has been a Vet in Grange since 1983 and has overseen the change of the practice from a primarily agricultural practice in the early 80’s to the progressive vibrant practice that Archway has become. His wealth of experience covers a breadth of Veterinary interests, from Gundogs to pigs , but his main area of work is with the practice’s growing number of equine clients, for which the practice has developed a strong reputation.
He has a keen interest in all aspects of equine work especially reproductive and dental work, and is Senior Veterinary Surgeon to Cartmel Racecourse.
Outside of the busy practice workload Tim can be found with his Icelandic Horses, walking his Labradors or mountain biking in the fells..
