One of the UK’s leading veterinary referral centres has appointed a new hospital director who is looking to crown his arrival by strengthening its enviable reputation. 

Matt Root joins Linnaeus-owned Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists (AMVS) in Winchester and brings with him vast experience in the human dentistry and orthodontics sectors, plus senior management roles in retail. 

A keen dog lover, with three of his own, Matt has made the move to the veterinary profession as he wants to make a positive difference to patients and clients in a service-led environment which is ideal for his skill set. 

Matt said: “Although I’ve only just walked through the doors at Anderson Moores, I can clearly see why it has an enviable reputation for providing some of the highest quality veterinary care in the UK and I’m very excited to be its hospital director. 

“I also hope joining the veterinary profession will be good for the soul by working with both animals and humans in a caring environment.” 

In his new role, Matt will be instrumental in shaping the future growth strategy at Anderson Moores, while pushing to ensure the animal hospital continues to be among the best in the country.

Matt added: “Initially, I will immerse myself within all areas of Anderson Moores to gain as much knowledge of how the hospital operates in order to further benefit our patients and clients. 

“I’m really looking forward to meeting all the team members and learn from them. It’s obvious that they all have the utmost passion and expertise which has created a great team spirit here at the animal hospital.”

Outside of work, Matt enjoys going for walks with his wife and three dogs, as well as keeping fit.

Anderson Moores offers specialist care in anaesthesia and analgesia, cardiology, dentistry, diagnostic imaging, emergency and critical care, feline hyperthyroid clinic, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, orthopaedics and soft tissue surgery.
