Recently qualified vets will have the opportunity to build relationships and socialise this summer thanks to the relaunch of The London Young Vet Network (YVN).

The aim of the group, which has been dormant for several years, is to encourage recently qualified vets in Greater London to meet and build support networks through CPD and social events.

New lease of life

Such groups exist across the country, and thanks to a new group of volunteers and increased support from the BVA, the London-based group has been given a new lease of life.

A YVN spokesman said: “Various events are in the pipeline, both CPD and social, and will be confirmed in the coming weeks.

“If you are a recently qualified vet (less than eight years) and are based in and around Greater London, the group is looking for you.”

Neurology CPD

The first meeting takes place tonight (4 May) at in The Northcote pub in Leyton, East London, where vet Paul Newman will present a one-hour CPD session entitled “I’ve done the neuro exam… what now?”

The location may change for subsequent meetings. The YVN is a BVA incentive supported by the Veterinary Defence Society – for more information, search “London Young Vet Network“.
