Dr Sarah Martin

Sarah graduated from Cambridge University (Lucy Cavendish College) in 2007.

She spent many years working in day and night clinics in the north-west of England, before setting up a dedicated out-of-hours emergency service for clinics in Surrey.  She has a special interest in emergency medicine and surgery.

This night service paved the way for Chertsey Vets and then Woodham Lane Vets to be formed.

Sarah also performs veterinary acupuncture for her patients at our Woodham Lane clinic.

Dr Tristan Martin

Tristan graduated from Cambridge University (Downing College) in 2005. 

After working as an intern and resident in specialist referral practice in the North West, he and Sarah decided to relocate to Surrey after the birth of their first daughter.

Many years working in a referral hospital has given Tristan the ability to be calm under pressure, and deal with any case that comes through the door.

Tristan has a special interest and further training in endoscopy and keyhole surgery which her performs at our Chertsey clinic.

Dr Jenny Cantlay

Jenny graduated from Edinburgh University in 2000.


Since then she has worked in a variety of small animal practices both in the UK and Asia. She has worked in wildlife conservation, which led her to have some close encounters with Asiatic black bears and green turtles!​

Last year, she found her purrfect feline friend, called TJ. He is handsome tabby cat, who was rescued by Woking Cats Protection.

Dr David Tompkins

David graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2020. He has joined the Chertsey and Woodham Lane teams and is making a flying start into his veterinary career.

We hope you will make David welcome when you meet him at the clinic!

Group Practice Manager

Mati joined our reception team back in 2016, while completing her degree in Animal Behaviour and Welfare. 

She is now Practice Manager of both Woodham Lane and Chertsey Vets.


She had previously been working in the event and theatre industry, but felt like something was missing; and so followed her dream job of working with animals.


After a 6 month break from the team to fulfil another goal: travelling and working in New Zealand; she decided that her home was back with us, and she as rejoined us as our Group Practice Manager.

Her goal now she has settled, is to start adding to her animal family, including one day having her own small holding with pigs and pygmy goats!
