Double win for Fitzpatrick Referrals at the Vet Marketing Awards!
Fitzpatrick Referrals was delighted to scoop two awards at last week’s Vet Marketing Awards, held at the London Vet Show.
The practice picked up the Training Initiatives Award, in recognition of its CPD, Internship and Residency programmes, the launch of Fitzpatrick Learning Academy and the commitment of Fitzpatrick Referrals to pushing the boundaries to advance the veterinary profession.
Noel Fitzpatrick was also awarded the 2011 Science prize for his dedication and commitment to moving the profession forward through scientific and technological development, his research, philosophy and practice.
Organised by Grove House Publishing who produce OvertheCounter magazine, Vet Marketing and Farm Business, the Vet Marketing Awards are designed to award best practice companies and individuals who are driving innovation in branding, communications and product development, in a way that promotes health and wellbeing for the good of practice, customer, and animals in their care.
Commenting on the Training Initiatives Award, the Judges said; “The mission of Fitzpatrick Referrals is to deliver ‘the best level of surgical, medical and compassionate care for small animals,’ and they have certainly achieved this since the opening of their state-of-the-art practice in 2008. To offer their unparalleled level of care means a high level of training for their staff, and for vets and trainees from across the country. The judges were impressed that they offer more residencies, internships and fellowships than any other private practice in Europe, their commitment to CPD and the in-depth nature of their entry.”
Presenting Noel Fitzpatrick with his Science Award, host of the awards ceremony, Alan Whibley, Publisher of Vet Marketing said; “For the judges, this is was by far the winner in this category. Noel Fitzpatrick advances scientific and technological development in the veterinary profession, based on the moral and ethical obligation to adopt these new techniques responsibly. He pushes the boundaries, through technology, and also his support for his fellow veterinarians, through internships, CPD lectures and key note speeches, such as the one earlier today. He promulgates the moral imperative to ensure that whilst the client is fully aware of every procedure possible, that a pet is a member of the family and should be treated as such.”
On receiving the awards, Noel Fitzpatrick commented; “I’m hugely grateful and humbled by this award. Awards are not something I strive for personally because I don’t think they should be an aim in themselves. However, what this award represents is the acknowledgement of a team of people who together work for long hours and put up with a lot of stress from me to create a better future for animals and for medical science generally. I’m hugely proud of our team at Fitzpatrick Referrals and at OrthoFitz and it is for them that I hold this award in such great esteem.”
