About us

Harbour Veterinary Group has been established in the Portsmouth area for over 40 years originally started by Mr Richard Pratt who together with his partners expanded the group to a hospital and four branch surgeries. Mr Pratt retired in 2001 and Richard Nunn took over with John Moffitt and Stephen Hanvidge.

Upon Richard Nunn’s retirement in November 2008 Harbour Veterinary Group was acquired by CVS UK Ltd, a large organisation with practices across the UK providing support and sharing expertise but allowing the practice to keep their name and brand. John Moffitt is still with us and is now senior veterinary surgeon at the hospital in North End.

We have a team of 14 veterinary surgeons, 30 nurses, six receptionists, two admin support staff and a practice manager.

We have a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons standards accreditation for our hospital and all four branches and all our practices are training practices where we are able to train our nurses to qualify as registered veterinary nurses. We encourage further professional development for our vets, currently we have two vets with certificates in Cardiology, Surgery and Medicine and another vet currently studying for her medicine certificate.

Harbour Veterinary Group strives to provide gold standard service to all our clients including offering our own out of hours and emergency service at the hospital in North End.
