Vet Futures will be hitting the road over April, May and June with a series of regional events in which vets, veterinary nurses and other members of the practice team will be encouraged to give their views about where the profession is heading.
The initiative, which is run jointly by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and the British Veterinary Association (BVA), aims to help the profession prepare for and shape its future and invites members to share their hopes and fears for the future of the veterinary team.
There will be a total of six free events taking place across the country. These are:
· Belfast, Dunadry Hotel, 16 April, 6.30pm – 10pm
· Exeter, The Devon Hotel, 20 April, 6.30pm – 10pm
· Cambridge, Menzies Cambridge Hotel and Golf Club, 21 April, 6.30pm – 10pm
· Manchester, Novotel Manchester West, 18 May, 6.30pm – 10pm
· Edinburgh, Scottish Parliament, 5 June, 8am – 10am
· Swansea, Village Hotel, 17 June, 6.30pm – 10pm
Those attending the event will also have the opportunity to learn about the findings of the Vet Futures research conducted so far and discuss their ambitions for the profession with colleagues from across the region.
All the events, with the exception of Edinburgh, start at 6.30pm with a buffet meal; the Edinburgh meeting includes breakfast. All the meetings are free to attend but guests should confirm attendance at least a week in advance for planning and security reasons.
