A new blog has been published on the Vet Futures website asking if veterinary nurses are being strong enough advocates for the profession.
Charging VAT on vet fees is a barrier to owners registering their pets with a veterinary surgery. This is the view of Stuart Winter, the Sunday Express small animal columnist and a campaigner to end VAT on pet fees.
Greater diversity, a truly integrated One Health approach and zero veterinary suicides were just some of ambitions for the profession discussed at the first meeting of the Vet Futures Group, which took place on 26 January 2015.
This month, we are asking members of the profession whether they would recognise mental health problems in their colleagues.
@BritishVets @theRCVS @VetPractice_Mag @vetmindmatters #VetFutures is great. But we need SO much more of that at the point where expectations are newly being formed. You have only ~3 lines in the report addressing students EMS, yet this is the first point of working life for the future vets, and it's dangerously variable in quality.
