Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) has published a summary report of its consultation into proposed changes to Scotland’s veterinary disease surveillance network.

Cuts will hit veterinary disease surveillance in Scotland.

Main themes

The report provides an overview of the main themes drawn from feedback provided during the six-week consultation period, which ran from June 1 to July 10, 2015.

A summary of the report and responses can be found on the SRUC website – all responses posted online are those that SRUC has the respondents’ permission to make publicly available.

Results from the consultation were discussed in a meeting of the Strategic Management Board and the Scottish Government held on July 23.

Next stage

The next steps in finalising any changes to be made to the surveillance network include the submission of recommendations to the cabinet secretary for Rural Affairs, Food and Environment by the Strategic Management Board.

Final decisions are dependent on the outcome of these discussions and will be made public in due course.
