Registration now open for RCVS Honours and Awards evening
The Honours and Awards evening will be hosted by RCVS senior vice president Mandisa Greene.

All members of the professions are invited to attend the event.

Registration has opened for the 2021 RCVS Honours and Awards evening, and all members of the professions are invited to attend the event.

Taking place from 7pm on Thursday 23 September, the evening will see the RCVS formally recognise the achievements of a number of veterinary professionals. 

The guest speaker for the event will be Dr Emily Collins-Wingate MRCVS, who will deliver a talk entitled. 'Class of Covid-19: the highs and lows of graduating through a pandemic'. 

Emily graduated from Surrey Vet School in 2020, and has since worked in farm animal practice in the South East of England. Emily promotes the farming industry on her social media pages, and uses her online presence to raise awareness of the role of farm veterinary surgeons. 

RCVS senior vice president Mandisa Greene, who is hosting the event, commented: “I am honoured to be hosting this evening which is a fantastic opportunity to recognise the achievements of veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and others who are doing great things for animal health and welfare, the profession and society at large at all stages of their careers.

“The example they set demonstrates that the veterinary sector is a force for societal good and each of our award winners will have specially-made illustrations and animations which will be played on the night to give an overview of what they have achieved.”

Commenting on her choice of keynote speaker, Mandisa added, “With so many years of collective experience and achievement in the room, I decided it would be interesting to turn things on their head a little this year and invite an inspiring guest speaker who is just at the very beginning of her career, and who can give some fresh perspectives to some of us who may have qualified some time ago.

“I asked Emily to be this year’s keynote speaker after hearing her talk so passionately about her experiences of training and graduating during the height of the pandemic, and how it set her up for her first farm vet role - I’m sure you will find her talk as eye-opening and engaging as I did.”
