The nominations deadline for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons’ new Queen’s Medal has been extended “to allow time for the nominations paperwork to be completed on return from the Christmas and New Year break”.

The new medal, launched at the House of Lords in November, is a new honour to be awarded to a veterinary surgeon for a lifetime of outstanding contributions to the profession, who has “dedicated their career to working above and beyond the call of duty” in the fields of veterinary medicine, science or related areas.

The new medal is the most prestigious honour the college can bestow, and will be awarded at RCVS Day in London in July (2014).

RCVS chief executive Nick Stace said: “We received more enquiries about the Queen’s Medal over the Christmas period but appreciated that people might welcome a little extra time in the new year to complete and submit their nominations.

“We’re certainly keen to allow anyone who wishes to make a nomination for this very special award the chance to do so.”

The deadline has been extended until 5pm on January 31, 2014.

Full details about the nominations process are available on the RCVS website.
