The first VetSkill suitably qualified person (SQP) conference, held at the College of Animal Welfare on 20 November, proved to be a big success.
Delegates made the most of the format, which included talks and workshops, interspersed with networking opportunities with other delegates and speakers.
The conference, aimed specifically at SQPs, began with an update from the VMD, followed by product information, sessions on practical skills, health and safety and SQP regulation.
Included in the conference fee, all delegates received their VetSkill 2017 annual SQP registration free of charge.
VetSkill chairman Greg Warman said: “Our aim when designing this event was to make the process of SQP annual registration and CPD fulfilment as simple and effective as possible.
“The feedback we have received from delegates has been extremely positive and we are already making plans for our 2017 conference.”
The inaugural conference marked VetSkill’s authorisation by the VMD to maintain a register for SQPs to prescribe and supply POM-VPS and NFA-VPS veterinary medicinal products.
Any SQP wishing to transfer to the VetSkill Register for 2017 can do so before the end of the year for a single fee of £29, without any late penalty charges.
