CPD Lecture Series for Veterinary Professionals

Partners in Care

Our Partners in Care lecture series is offered to veterinary professionals to provide high quality and relevant CPD with our specialists throughout the year. Covering a range of topics, we design the lectures for vets and vet nurses based on what they want to learn.

Our lectures are held at either our Orthopaedic and Neurology hospital in Eashing, in our lecture theatre or at our Oncology and Soft Tissue hospital in Guildford. We provide tea, coffee and pizza during the evening and the rooms are airconditioned for your comfort.
