About Us/The Practice

Flett & Carmichael Veterinary Surgeons was set up in 2002, when local vets Liz Flett and Kate Carmichael took over the small single-handed veterinary practice at the bottom of the Clay Loan in Kirkwall.

They quickly outgrew the original building, and in the summer of 2003 Flett & Carmichael relocated to the current site at 1, Garrison Road in Hatston Industrial Estate.

Liz and Kate’s vision for the practice was to provide a high quality, compassionate veterinary service to the animals of Orkney. We pride ourselves on our caring team and believe that our staff are our most important asset. The practice has grown and expanded over the years and our building has been extended to accommodate this.

In March 2019 Liz Flett stepped back from the running of the practice allowing Moira Sinclair and John Davidson to join Kate as partners of Flett & Carmichael. Being long term staff members they are keen to stay true to the values on which that the practice was established.
