The college is holding a regional Question Time event at the Holiday Inn, Winchester, on Thursday 24 November.

The college holds three of the regional sessions a year, and the latest evening will open at 6:30pm with a buffet supper, followed by an overview of current activities from RCVS president, Chris Tufnell, at 7:15pm.

A look at Schedule 3

At 7:30pm, attendees can either choose to attend a general question and answer session or a session on Schedule 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons’ Act, before coming back together for a final discussion with the panel at 8:45pm.

The Schedule 3 session will provide information on improvements that could be made to the schedule to strengthen the role of VNs.

The question and answer session, meanwhile, is flexible and designed to be shaped by attendees, but likely topics could include:

  • the new alternative dispute resolution trial (the Veterinary Client Mediation Service)
  • Vet Futures
  • VN Futures
  • Brexit
  • Schedule 3 review
  • Mind Matters Initiative
  • fellowships
  • the new Practice Standards Scheme (PSS)

One-on-one time

Ahead of the Question Time, the college will also offer free PSS surgeries between noon and 5pm. The 45-minute one-on-ones, with PSS assessor Ean Garner-Richardson, are open to existing or prospective scheme members.

All members of the veterinary team are welcome, and attending the event can count towards an attendee’s CPD requirement.
