IVC Evidensia‘s new UK Referrals Board will bring together the expertise and experience of veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses who are actively practicing in their referral hospitals across the country.
The board will also provide expert support and guidance to the business and provide input to specific projects affecting the wider referrals community.
The UK Referrals Board will work closely with the referral leadership team and national specialist leads, as well as the current small animal, equine, farm and nursing boards to ensure a collegiate approach to projects that affect all IVC Evidensia clinicians.
As it stands, the board will include specialists, residents, registered veterinary nurses and advanced practitioners from across the UK.
The UK Referrals Board currently includes the following board members:
- Scott Rutherford (Frank Pet Surgeons)
- Rory Bell (Swift Referrals)
- Padraig Egan (East Neuk Vet Referrals)
- Lara Brunori (VetsNow Referrals, Glasgow)
- Paul Aldridge (VetsNow Referrals, Manchester)
- Jamie McClement (Abington Park Referrals)
- David Nutbrown-Hughes (Rowe Referrals)
- Cathy Woodlands (Bath Veterinary Referrals)
- Katherine Mortimer (Southern Counties Veterinary Specialists)
The UK Referrals Board will also be supported and facilitated by two members of the Referral National Clinical Leadership Team: Stephen Collins and Arlene Connor.
Amanda Boag, chief medical officer for IVC Evidensia, commented:“This group will support the ongoing development of clinical and operational standards, as well as working with our learning and development team contributing to training and promoting career progression of colleagues within the IVC Evidensia community.
“We are excited about the commitment we are making to our Referral Services within the UK, ensuring we build a strong community for our Referrals Teams and working to deliver a sustainable strategy for the future.”
