Veterinary nurses who wish to remain on the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) list/register of veterinary nurses have been reminded by the college their renewal fees must be paid by December 31, 2013 or they will be removed.
According to the RCVS, 7,180 veterinary nurses paid their fees by the annual deadline date of November 1, and another 2,161 have made payments since then. The remaining 1,468 veterinary nurses who have still not paid their fees have been sent a letter reminding them fees need to be paid – and cleared – by the end of the year.
The renewal fee can be paid online via www.rcvs.org.uk/login, using the individual login numbers on the fee renewal letters sent in September and the overdue payment letters sent in December. Veterinary nurses who have mislaid their login numbers can email firstname.lastname@example.org with their full name, date of birth, address on the register or list and the badge number engraved on the back of their VN badge. Payment can also be made by bank transfer, details of which are on the renewal letter.
For payments made by cheque, the name of the veterinary nurse and their list/register number needs to be written on the back. Cheques need to be received by the RCVS before December 20 and the payment to have cleared by December 31, said the college.
