The BVA has revealed that its 2009 Congress, entitled “Together forever?”, will focus on devolution, de-regulation, DEFRA, Europe and specialisms.
The event – which will take place at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff, Wales, on September 24-26 – promises “an outstanding programme combining both political and CPD sessions organised by the BVA and its specialist divisions”.
This programme will be complemented with a “fun and varied social programme” and a comprehensive trade exhibition.
A statement on the BVA website reads: “Great Britain represents a single epidemiological unit in terms of disease control but, increasingly, with devolution, different policies are being pursued in England, Scotland and Wales.
“In the meantime, established practices are changing rapidly, and the veterinary profession is becoming more diverse.
“The contentious issues programme at this year’s BVA Congress will consider what this means for animal health, and the implications for individual practitioners and the profession as a whole.”
