The SPVS Veterinary Business Excellence Awards, a prestigious initiative aimed at recognising and honouring exemplary veterinary practices, proudly unveils the category winners for 2023.
These awards are a testament to the commitment of SPVS to foster excellence, growth, and leadership within the veterinary community, aligning with the principles outlined in their Thriving in Practice learning hub.
The awards celebrate and commend veterinary practices that have demonstrated exceptional performance and innovation in crucial areas essential to the future success of the profession.
SPVS received an overwhelming response from the shortlisted practices, showcasing their exceptional skills in leadership, team dynamics, self development and management.
