Question Time travels to Scotland

17 August 2007

The RCVS Officer team will be travelling to Dunblane, near Stirling, on Tuesday 25 September for the first regional Question Time meeting of the new presidential year.

Veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and others involved in the profession will be able to put their questions to the panel, made up of RCVS Officers and members of the Veterinary Nurses Council, and debate and discuss the issues that affect them and the future of the veterinary profession.

Questions on veterinary services in rural areas, a new Veterinary Surgeons Act, the Practice Standards Scheme and modular certificates are all expected to be raised and discussed on the night.

Also high on the agenda will be the new non-statutory Register for veterinary nurses, what this means to a veterinary nurse, their colleagues and clients.

The evening will start at 6:30pm with a bite to eat and a chance to catch up with colleagues and chat with the RCVS Officers. The meeting itself will begin at 7:15pm with a short welcome by RCVS President Dr Bob Moore, followed by questions from the floor.

Personal invites will be sent to all vets and veterinary nurses living within an hour or so of the meeting, which will be held at the Dunblane Hydro Hotel (pictured), however all members of the veterinary team are welcome to attend.

If you would like to attend the Question Time meeting, please contact Fiona Clark in the Communications Department on 020 7202 0773 before 7 September. 

If you are unable to attend the meeting, but have a question you would like to raise, please do write in.  Feedback from the meeting will be available on RCVSonline a few weeks after the meeting.

Future meetings are planned for 1 November near Royal Tunbridge Wells, and Nottingham and Sherborne in March and May 2008. Details will be available on RCVSonline nearer the time.
