Elizabeth Leece


RCVS and EBVS Specialist in Anaesthesia and Analgesia

After a residency in veterinary anaesthesia at the University of Liverpool, Liz moved to the Animal Heath Trust becoming head of anaesthesia in 2006. She has since worked in university and private referral hospitals whilst acting as a consultant in a number of clinics across Europe.

She is a European and RCVS Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia and also a past president of the Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists. She loves teaching both inside and outside the clinics, whilst her current clinical research interests are with the brachycephalics, neuroanaesthesia, and chronic pain. Liz lectures to vets and nurses (and occasionally human anaesthetists) worldwide.

In her spare time, she loves cycling and walking, especially up mountains, with her young dog, Ogwen, who she is currently training to become her diabetic hypo-detection dog so that she can stay safe when exploring the landscapes that Yorkshire has to offer.
