Nominations Open for the 2014 Veterinary Awards
Has a vet ever helped save the life of your beloved horse, or otherwise supported them on the road to recovery? Petplan – one of the UK’s pet insurance providers, announced nominations are now open for its highly anticipated Veterinary Awards. Affectionately known as the ‘Oscars of the veterinary world’, the awards recognise members of the veterinary profession who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
Keith Chandler MRCVS, partner at Kessock Equine Vets in Scotland, one of 2012’s commendable winners, told Equi-Ads how he felt to win an award: “Winning such a prestigious award was an absolute highlight of my year and an enormous honour. It was really a testament to my wonderful team and so rewarding to know that we have happy clients who were compelled to nominate us.”
Now in its fifteenth year, the awards recognise professionals across five different categories: Vet of theYear, Vet Nurse of the Year, Vet Practice of the Year, Vet Support Staff of the Year and Practice Manager of the Year. Last year the awards received a record breaking 11,000 nominations from clients and veterinary staff alike, highlighting the fantastic work that goes on in veterinary practices up and down the UK.
Nominations close Friday 31st January 2014 and the winners will be announced at the prestigious award ceremony held in Birmingham Town Hall on Thursday 3rd April 2014.
