'Five' is the lucky number for Kinross veterinary practice

20 February 2012

Liz Burton with hamper prizeLiz Burton, Marketing Co-ordinator at Loch Leven Equine Practice, Kinross, has won a hamper we donated to the Veterinary Practice Managers Association (VPMA) Congress prize draw recently, after answering correctly the question “How many principles of practice are set out in the new RCVS Code of Professional Conduct for Veterinary Surgeons?” (answer: five).

The question was one of 11 that visitors to the VPMA Congress - held from 27-28 January in Kenilworth - needed to answer correctly in order to be entered into their prize draw. The correct answers could be found by visiting exhibitors’ stands, and the prizes were contributed by exhibitors.

“Getting out and about to meet the people working within veterinary practices is important to us,” says Lizzie Lockett, Head of the RCVS Communications Department.

“Congresses such as the VPMA’s give us the chance to hear what people have to say – and of course to help make sure that veterinary practices have the information they need from the College, such as knowing about these new Codes.”

The prize was delivered to Liz (pictured) at her practice in Kinross. “I am absolutely delighted to have won the hamper; it came as a really lovely surprise and rounded off two days of excellent lectures at the VPMA Congress,” she says. “Many thanks to the RCVS for donating this wonderful gift.”

The new RCVS Codes of Professional Conduct for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses are due to be launched during April and will replace the current Guides to Professional Conduct.

The new Codes are shorter, principles-based documents, and will be accompanied on our website with supporting guidance.
