Dr Francois Du Plessis



Francois du Plessis

Dr Francois Du Plessis qualified in 2015 from the RVC and returned to the South Coast where he has lived for most of his life (despite the name, he is English), initially working in Petersfield before becoming a clinical director of a large practice in Sussex. This proved that corporate life was not for him, and he joined the Whiteley team in July 2020.

Francois enjoys general practice and involvement with the team, clients and the patients. His aim is to always provide a superb general practice service, using expertise in other disciplines as required. He also enjoys the business and management side of practice life (yuck – no accounting for taste), which is a huge help to Cara, allowing her more theatre and patient time.

Francois lives fairly locally with his partner and their pack of spaniels, ranging from a new pup to a ‘responsible’ adult – in spaniel terms.
