The Yorkshire Vet recently finished its 12th season on Channel 5, continuing to showcase the work of various talented veterinarians in the county, including the likes of Julian Norton and Peter Wright. Both used to work together at the Skeldale Veterinary Centre in Thirsk but have since moved on. Much has changed in particular for Julian who has become his own boss in recent years since leaving Skeldale behind.
Where is Julian Norton’s new vet practice?
Julian worked at Skeldale for more than two decades before he decided it was time to leave.
Skeldale had been the original practice of world-famous vet James Herriot author of All Creatures Great and Small author Alf Wight.
But Julian felt it was the right time to go as the practice was merged with the national veterinarian organisation Medivet which has more than 300 practices across the country.
This pushed him to move to pastures anew and try something slightly different.
Julian went on to work in Boroughbridge before opening an independent vet in Wetherby.
But the 49-year-old has once again returned to his hometown to open another veterinary practice.
The Thirsk Veterinary Practice is just a 10-minute walk away from Skeldale so Julian can pop in to see his former colleagues whenever he chooses.
He opened up the practice along with his wife Anne who also works as a vet.
Julian explained to Darlington and Stockton Times: “There was an opportunity in Thirsk where we live, my wife is a vet and she is mainly going to be running it with a colleague.
“This is a sister practice with the Wetherby one, sharing common values and aims.
“We are happy to be continuing the independent tradition, to us that is the best way to practice.
“For the vets we can make our own decisions and not be pestered by targets and financial targets, we are not under any pressure.”

Julian added how he doesn’t want to be in rivalry with any other practices, despite being in the area once more.
“We are not particularly aiming to be in competition, it was not deliberate.
“A business that runs well is when people are connected to it, if you want to spend 20 minutes talking to people I am not under any pressure to see a set number of clients in an hour.
“I became a vet because I wanted to treat animals, in the bigger companies sometimes that essence of being a vet gets lost a little bit.”
The Yorkshire Vet will be returning later this year for season 13.
Vet Peter Wright also confirmed that the docuseries has already been given the green light for two more series on top of this.
So it looks like The Yorkshire Vet is going to be on our screens for the foreseeable.
The Yorkshire Vet is available to watch on Channel 5.
