Anyone who was considering putting their practice manager forward for The Veterinary Business Journal’s Practice Manager of the Year 2011 award can now take advantage of our extended deadline.

The Veterinary Business Journal's Practice Manager of the Year award application deadline has been extended to February 18.Due to last minute demand on entries we’ve decided to allow applications up to 5pm on Friday February 18, so download an application pack and put your practice manager forward for the industry’s top award.

Last year’s Practice Manager of the Year, Estelle Busby said: “My advice to anyone thinking of nominating their manager this year is to just do it. It is a role where people are perhaps not aware of what we do and the potential difficulties. I think it would go a long way to show that you value your manager – it’s a great award to win and I am very proud to have won it.”

Miss Busby manages a 5 vet, 4 branch practice with a total of almost 30 staff and was nominated by one of her nursing staff.

VPMA president Rebekka Fiorani.VPMA president Rebekka Fiorani supported her call to reward practice managers, saying: “It is the one and only competition of its kind within our industry and I would urge anyone who has a practice manager that they simply couldn’t live without to nominate them.”

Robin Fearon, editor of The VBJ, said: “We’ve changed the format of the application this year and the application pack makes it a bit more rigorous. We’re asking those who nominate to provide information on the different disciplines their practice manager is involved in and staff testimonials – but don’t be put off, it doesn’t have to be an essay.”
