Dr Jones will formally take up his position as head of Harper & Keele Veterinary School in August

 
The founding head of Keele University’s new veterinary school has been announced as Dr Matthew Jones.

Dr Jones, who will formally take up his position in August, joins Harper & Keele Veterinary School from the University of Surrey. There he is currently director of veterinary partnerships and was previously director of clinical education.

Dr Jones said: “To be able to lead the development of a new school built on the already strong foundations of the two universities is a huge privilege. My aim is to blend these academic strengths and clinical facilities with a partnerships-based approach integrating the Vet School with the wider profession.”
