The ‘This is Us’ event takes place from 9 to 11 October and the virtual Awards Evening will be held on Saturday 10 October at 6.30pm. The ceremony will be livestreamed on the BVNA Facebook page and Zoom. Dr Jane Goodall will be the keynote speaker for the evening.

Jo Hinde, BVNA President says: “I am thrilled to be hosting this year’s award ceremony and urge everyone to join in by nominating and watching the ceremony live.

“We have chosen 3 brand new award categories that really highlight those individuals who are truly inspirational and as such, I am absolutely delighted that Dr Jane Goodall DME will be our guest speaker for the evening.

“She is the epitome of inspirational, compassion and kindness – all of which are values that veterinary nurses hold dear. This really is an event that’s not to be missed!”

Published annually by NOAH, this book is sent to every veterinary practice in the UK for free. The 2021 edition includes an even larger range of products than previous years.

Chief executive Dawn Howard stated that NOAH will shortly be launching a survey for practices on the Compendiums effectiveness.

She added: "Our survey will give users of the Compendium the opportunity to say how they think we can improve it to assist them in prescribing veterinary medicines and advising animal keepers on their use. We look forward to getting your views."
