Veterinary View, a news and current affairs-style programme for and about the veterinary profession, is now available to view.
The series of 16 short films have been made by the BVA and ITN Productions and are introduced by newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky.
They examines some of the key interests of BVA members, from veterinary well-being to veterinary surveillance and preventive health care. They includes an interview with BVA president Sean Wensley and chief executive David Calpin.
Three of the films are studio debates between BVA junior vice-president Gudrun Ravetz, Lord Sandy Trees, Association of Veterinary Students president Helena Diffey and the Veterinary Schools Council’s Clare Allen on veterinary education and the future of the profession.
Dr Wensley said the films not only celebrated some of the veterinary profession’s fantastic work, but complemented Vet Futures, the joint BVA-RCVS project that explores how the profession can best shape its own future.
He said: “We hope it will stimulate debate among vets and the wider community in which we work, about both the big challenges and opportunities the veterinary profession is facing.”
