BVA Update at Young Vet Network 2019

British Veterinary Association

At the YVN Day, we leaped on the opportunity to meet with the talented Simon Doherty. Simon is the President of the British Veterinary Association who explained a little about the company and their goals for the upcoming year.

Simon explained that the British Veterinary Association is the national representative body for the veterinary profession in the UK. BVA guide members throughout their careers, from student to retirement, with the support and knowledge they need to achieve their goals and speak up for them on the issues that matter most. British Veterinary Association is proud to say that they are the only UK veterinary association that looks after the interests of all vets in all disciplines.

Simon explained that this year BVA have set many achievable goals, in order to expand and improve this year. Simon suggested that the British Veterinary Association will be putting an emphasis on veterinary futures, for those training in the profession or wanting to enroll. Simon explained that investigating animal welfare is something that the BVA will be focusing on this year also in order to limit this concern. Busy year ahead for Simon and the team, eh?

Last week we, also had the pleasure of meeting with Chris Payne from Worldwide Veterinary Services. Not only was Chris a delight to talk with but he also gave us a great insight around WVS. Mr. Payne explained that Worldwide Veterinary Services is a charity funded veterinary service that sources vets and veterinary nurses around the globe, where they are needed most.

Worldwide Veterinary Services is an animal charity who work with non-profit organizations all around the world. The team at WVS have been striving to be at the frontline of animal welfare, helping animals where no one else can.
Whilst our animal’s needs are being met, WVS veterinary doctors and nursing staff are provided with the opportunity to expand their knowledge while traveling the globe and exploring different countries. Mr. Chris Payne suggested that he can’t urge more veterinary staff to get involved in this programme. Sounds pretty good to us and if you would like to learn more please do get in touch here.

It was great catching up with these two great gentlemen and we thank you for taking the time out of the busy day to talk to The Vet Service.
