Wylie Veterinary Centre

Meet the team!


Meet the Directors

The Wylie Veterinary Centre was opened in 1908 by Mr Stuart Wylie. Two further generations of the Wylies followed – Richard (Dick) and his son David. The business remained a Partnership until October 2015 when it became a limited company. It is now jointly owned by Richard Doyle and Morkel Pienaar.

Position: Director

My wife Angela and I have been part of the Wylies family since 1991 after graduating from the Vet School in South Africa. Since then we have had 4 visits to the Harold Wood Maternity Unit (as it was then) and 3 visits to the Cats Protection League! I have a certificate in internal medicine but ultrasound is my passion! Outside of work, family commitments take up most of my time although I also enjoy swimming, bike riding and yoga. I feel privileged to be able to work as a Vet in the UK and to be part of the Wylies family.

Position: Director

I’m another South African who left the sun and wide open spaces of my homeland for the irresistible lure of Essex! I’ve worked at Wylies for a long time now and became a partner last year. I have a certificate in ophthalmology but enjoy all aspects of veterinary practice.
