The RCVS Charitable Trust is seeking feedback from people with experience of public speaking to help pilot a new scheme that aims to encourage veterinary nurses to work with schools and young people.

Specifically, the veterinary charity is keen to hear from veterinary nurses who have previously given informal or formal talks to schools, community groups or even prisons.

A spokesman for the trust said: “We would really value the thoughts and experiences of those who have done this in the past, or are involved in a current project.” 

The trust is keen to hear from anyone interested in giving feedback. To get involved, or for further information, contact Cherry Bushell at c.bushell@rcvstrust.org.uk or call 0207 202 0743.
 
The pilot scheme is part of a dedicated programme in the jubilee year (marking 50 years of the veterinary nursing profession), which aims to encourage veterinary nurses to push the boundaries of their role and make a unique difference to animal care. 

Other initiatives currently underway include:

  • Practical support through equipment grants to accredited training centres;
  • A new grants programme to support practice innovation inspired by veterinary nurses;  
  • Exploring ways to offer guidance and support to vet nurses to run preventative health clinics.
