About the project

The British Veterinary Association (BVA), the representative body for the veterinary profession, and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), which sets, upholds and advances veterinary standards, have joined forces to consider the issues that will face the veterinary team in the future.

Through a programme of research, engagement with the profession and the public, and a consideration of strategic issues that have affected the profession overseas and other comparable sectors, we aim to develop an action plan that will help deliver the best for animal health and welfare, the public and the profession.

The project was launched at the BVA Congress at the London Vet Show on 20 November 2014, and a report was published at the next year’s event on 20 November 2015.

An Action Group has now been set up to turn the recommendations of the report into an Action Plan.

  • Research

    Planning must be based on evidence. A robust research programme lies at the heart of Vet Futures. Visit Research to discover our results and get involved.

  • Engagement

    The initial engagement phase of the project informed the final Report. Now that we have published our Action Plan we are setting up teams and working groups to take the actions forward. If you have a passion and are interested in getting involved with any of the streams of activity, please do let us know by emailing.

  • Action

    Finally, there will be an action phase, where key strategic issues will be identified, together with a clear plan for action from the BVA and the RCVS, together with other organisations and individuals
