  • New website to support the veterinary profession launched


    Vetsnet is a website designed to meet the increasing need for engagement and support within the veterinary profession as a whole. The profession is changing rapidly, and vets in practice often struggle to keep up with the pace of change. There is also increasing focus on mental health issues within the profession, with a rapid growth in the help and support available.

    www.vetsnet.net summarises news and views relating to issues facing the profession, and encourages members to feedback. Historically, the profession is reactive to change, and the site aims to encourage pro-active engagement with the challenges we face. ‘Vetsupport’ summarises and signposts psychological, financial and employment help and support. There are dedicated pages for employers, employees, students and new graduates.

    ‘Vetmums’ enables social interaction for any members taking a break from practice (maternity/paternity leave, sabbaticals, PhDs etc). Monthly ‘Keep in touch’ newsletters are being developed to provide concise summaries of new drugs/diseases/treatments to smooth transition back into practice

    ‘Vetsports’ is a page created alongside a sports-app based Vetsnet club to enable social sports interaction, blogs and sponsorship.

    Created by Liz Barton, a vet in practice, www.vetsnet.net is designed to fulfil the non-clinical needs personally experienced personally and amongst colleagues. The site is administrated through the non-profit company, Vetsnet CIC. Sponsorship and advertising on the site is being sought to enable the site to establish, grow and provide additional services. Please contact liz.barton@vetsnet.net
