The Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel and Spa.

A SPVS “leadership academy” designed to improve veterinary management systems and increase profitability in practice has been announced.

The VetShare-sponsored event will take place over four days, divided into two, two-day meetings on 22-23 March and 10-11 May at the Mercure Warwickshire Walton Hall Hotel and Spa.

The central location, near Stratford-on-Avon, has been chosen to combine CPD during the day with rest and relaxation in the evening.


The event’s schedule will be as follows:

  • 22 March – Introducing and measuring the proactive pursuit of four outcomes
  • 23 March – Financial productivity in the consultation room and then understanding the profit and loss sheet and using it to drive improvements in profitability
  • 10 May – Strategic marketing
  • 11 May – Recruiting, inducting, training, appraising and removing members of staff


The cost of the course is £1,000, which includes tuition and meals. Accommodation is extra, but a special rate of £120 per night has been arranged.

Attendees must be SPVS members and CPD certificates will be provided. Places on the course are limited to 20, which will be made available on a first come, first served basis.
