Peter Wright qualified from the University of Liverpool in 1981 and has worked at Skeldale for longer than he cares to admit. He worked with Alf Wight and Donald Sinclair, the original James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon, and enjoys telling younger vets tales from his time with them, leaving them wondering if he ever made an appearance in the James Herriot books! Peter enjoys small animal internal medicine as well as equine work, but is also regularly seen out on farm visits. When not working, Peter enjoys playing Bridge, gardening, tractor rallies, and spending time with his family.
