President to host meeting with members on home ground

24 April 2013

Durham Regional Question Time InvitationDurham will be the location of the next RCVS Regional Question Time, on Wednesday 15 May, at Bowburn Hall. The meeting is free to attend, and could count for up to three hours’ continuing professional development.

Local vets and veterinary nurses will receive personal invitations to the evening meeting, but all those working in the veterinary profession are welcome to attend and put their questions to members of the RCVS Officer team and Veterinary Nurses Council.

The evening begins at 6:30pm with a chance to relax and catch up with colleagues over a drink and a bite to eat. RCVS President, Jacqui Molyneux, who practices locally, near Consett, will then give a short overview of our latest developments, before taking questions from the floor. The evening is expected to finish at approximately 10pm.

At a recent Question Time meeting in Oxford, subjects raised by guests included new vet schools, the oversupply of vets/undersupply of VNs, microchipping and the role of the vet, horse passports and certification, proposed changes to the Practice Standards Scheme and non-stunned slaughter.

Also in Durham, we will be running a free Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) ‘surgery’, offering private appointments with a PSS Inspector.

If you’re thinking of joining the Scheme, need help with an upcoming inspection or want to ensure you’re meeting the new Code of Professional Conduct requirement and practising to Core Standards, book your place now.

Free 45-minute sessions are available between 12 noon and 5pm on Wednesday 15 May (places are limited, and on a first-come, first-served basis).

For further details or to book a place at Question Time or a PSS Surgery, please contact Fiona Harcourt on f.harcourt@rcvs.org.uk or 020 7202 0773.
