The RCVS Officer team will be heading to Lincolnshire on Thursday, 1 October for the first Question Time meeting of the new Presidential year.

The meeting will be held in the Lincoln Room at the Lincoln Hotel, in the city centre. Guests are invited to join colleagues for a drink and a bite to eat from 6.30pm, followed by Question Time at 7.15pm.
Questions are welcome on any veterinary issue and topics are expected to include veterinary legislation, VN regulation and training, and 24-hour cover. The meeting will finish at approximately 10pm.
