 I am Claire Roberts, I set up SynergyCPD in 2011 to support interprofessional team learning as I strongly believe in the benefits of the whole team leaning together, to support collaboration, discussion and change.

Hi, I’m Claire Roberts, (previously Shellim)



I have been involved in veterinary nursing for over 20 years and have worked in private, charity, emergency, and referral practices.


Bringing high quality, bespoke training to practices all over the country has been my passion for many years.

We are now regarded as one of the best and most trusted training organisations in the country with a loyal client base across the UK


If you’re looking for quality and experience from your training provider then your search is over.


It is my simple aim to provide the very best on-site training for your staff that is tailored to meet the needs of your practice.

I have written numerous articles and have lectured at BVNA, BSAVA, Vets Now, and Vets South congresses.


In all my roles, I have strived to provide first-class training that empowers staff and provides them with the skills they need to be excellent veterinary nurses.


I spent 3 years as the Assistant Regional Manager for a large veterinary group which has enabled me to understand the challenges faced by employers with regards to time, logistics, and finance that often limits the amount of CPD they are able to offer their valued employees.


My aim is to tailor your in-house training package taking on board all these factors.


I am currently working as a Professional Development Manager​ and am delighted that in 2021 Claire Woolford became a partner in the business

Thank you



My name is Claire Woolford, I joined SynergyCPD in 2017 to provide in house training on anaesthesia, CPR and critical care.  


I have been a veterinary nurse for 20 years,


I spent 8 years in general practice before moving to referral nursing. I joined Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists in 2006, where I am currently a head nurse and responsible for running the soft tissue theatre.  


I have always had a passion for anesthesia and in 2013 I gained my VTS (Veterinary Technician Specialist) in Anesthesia and Analgesia. This is an American qualification that has allowed me to develop my anaesthesia skills and knowledge to a high level. I am a member of the Academy of Veterinary Technicians in Anaesthesia and Analgesia. I have a particular interest in feline anaesthesia and analgesia.

I have lectured at BVNA congresses and I run in-house nurse CPD sessions at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists.


I love teaching nurses about anaesthesia and how they can implement simple changes in practice that mean their patients have the best outcome that allows nurses to really enjoy their anaesthesia.
