A free lunchtime webinar about the RCVS’ alternative dispute resolution (ADR) trial and its outcomes will be held at 1pm on 7 December.
The “lunch and learn” webinar – entitled “Who ADRs wins” – will be presented by RCVS registrar Gordon Hockey and council member Niall Connell, who was part of the advisory panel to the ADR trial.
The trial, which has been administered by Ombudsman Services, began in November 2014 to develop a system that addresses the many concerns received by the RCVS about the conduct of veterinary surgeons, which it cannot deal with under its statutory powers.
During the webinar, Gordon and Niall will explain the roles of Ombudsman Services and the advisory panel before examining the outcomes of some of the concerns handled by the trial. They will also discuss the future of the ADR scheme.
Listeners will have the opportunity to put their questions to the speakers following the presentation.
