  • Half of UK Veterinary Practices Don’t Recognise Veterinary Wellness as an Issue says New Survey



    A new study of veterinary professionals shows that while a large majority (84%) believe that veterinary wellness is ‘very important’ to the success of their practice, more than three quarters of practices (75%) have no plans to introduce a wellness programme and only 30% have a wellness programme in place or a wellness champion. More worryingly, 50% of practices don’t even recognise veterinary wellness as an issue.

    The research, carried out on behalf of the organisers

  • Why do some veterinary practices have no issues with recruitment?
    Two pretty much identical jobs: same area of the country, similar role responsibilities, similar remuneration, similar business size and structures. Yet, one ad receives 4 quality applicants and the other receives none. Why?

    Both veterinary practices have clear plans for the future and are investing in their current teams and business to ensure provision of a quality service for clients. Both practices could be a great place to work. However, one of these practices has a reputation as a good employer, the other has none. We don’t mean a bad reputation, simply no reputation- people haven’t heard of them.

  • Exciting programme on offer for VetsNorth 2019
    Organised by 5m publishing, the VetsNorth conference and exhibition will be taking place this year on 12-13 June at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School.
