The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is calling for vets and veterinary nurses to supply up-to-date email addresses so it can effectively carry out its survey of the professions in 2014.
The survey – which asks questions about how vets and veterinary nurses are using their qualifications, how they carry out CPD, what kind of practices they work in and their views on the profession – is carried out every four years and, for the first time, next year’s will be online only.
However, as the 2014 survey will be sent via email, correct addresses are needed to make sure members have their say.
According to the college, email addresses should be unique rather than being a generic practice email address, so the survey is sent to an individual rather than a whole team. This is also important for other emails from the college, such as personal fee or deadline reminders.
The RCVS also needs up-to-date contact details in order to offer members a better range of online services, such as the ability to better manage their register details.
Visit the login area on the RCVS website at www.rcvs.org.uk/login to check and update your contact details. Alternatively, contact the college’s registration department on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7202 0707.
