Need a diversion from the election? Head to Berwick for the next RQT meeting

15 April 2010

The RCVS Officer team will be heading to Berwick-upon-Tweed on Thursday 6 May, for a Regional Question Time meeting, to which veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, practice managers and others involved in the profession are all invited to debate current issues affecting the profession.

RCVS President Professor Sandy Trees will be chairing the meeting, and will be joined by the Officer team and VN Council members to answer questions from the floor.

The meeting will be held in the Garden Terrace at the Kings Arms Hotel, Berwick-upon-Tweed. Guests are invited to join colleagues for a drink and a bite to eat from 6:30pm, followed by Question Time at 7:15pm.

The guests set the agenda for the evening and questions are welcome on any veterinary issue – likely topics include veterinary legislation, veterinary nurse training, disciplinary issues and new standards for the Practice Standards Scheme. The meeting will finish at approximately 10:00pm.

All veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses in the local area will receive a personal invitation to the meeting. For further information, please contact Lydia Meakin on 020 7202 0773,

While in Berwick, from 11am-5pm in the Question Time venue, the RCVS will be holding Practice Standards Scheme ’surgeries’. These are available for practices who are thinking of joining the Scheme, are already a member and need some advice about an inspection, or would like a one-to-one chat with the Chairman of the scheme, Jill Nute, or an inspector. To book a free 45-minute appointment contact Lydia Meakin via the details above.
