Chatter box The RCVS are reminding veterinary nurses and veterinary surgeons that they have just over one week to put forward nominees for the annual VN Golden Jubilee Award.

The Award is given in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the profession, animal welfare and/or patient care and nominees can be veterinary nurses, veterinary surgeons or lay people. It was launched in 2011 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first RCVS veterinary nurse training course.

Nomination forms need to be submitted by 5pm on Friday, 24 April. For more information and to download a form, visit www.rcvs.org.uk/goldenjubilee  Chatter box

Vets urged to download Real Welfare app

BPEX are urging more vets to download its pig welfare app to report Real Welfare Assessments, warning that its bureau service will not be continuing indefinitely.

Around half of Real Welfare assessments are being submitted either through the portal or app, say BPEX. However, 50 per cent are still being sent to the bureau service for input.

Veterinary practices are now urged to start taking steps to tail off their use of the bureau.

"It is an extremely important tool for both producers and vets and can highlight where improvements can be made," say BPEX. "Uptake of the app has been steady but we still have some way to go and I would encourage all vets to download it."
