Mark qualified from Bristol University in 1989, and went on to work in a number of practices covering many different species. Founding his own primary care practice in 1994, which grew to 4 Vets in a short space of time, in 2001 Mark decided to focus his career on areas of particular interest. One ambition was to evolve more work with birds, having been involved in the poultry show world from a very young age. Starting in a small way with Gamebirds in 2006 this project is now expanded into the South Downs Veterinary Consultancy (SDVC) as demand has grown.

Mark also runs a Small Animal Veterinary Practice from the same site as SDVC, offering a full service to Dogs, Cats, Smaller Pets and a specialist referral service for Horses and Farm Animals. Information on that part of the practice can be found at www.markelliott.co.uk 

Mark has a keen interest in Complementary therapies, and has been a leader in that field for many years, currently he is Senior Vice-President of the British Association of Homeopathic Veterinary Surgeons. More information on alternative medicines can be found via www.homeopathicvet.co.uk and www.homeopathicvet.org which is Marks database on EBM. 

Outside of Veterinary work Mark is well known in the sporting field, and having been part of the winning team at the 2008 Purdey Award for Conservation has a wider interest in the benefits to the countryside of that community.  Mark is also a committee member of the NGO's Deer Branch, owns a works a variety of working dogs, and is a keen shot and fisherman.
