On Wednesday 14th September Lord Trees will be hosting 40 young vets at the House of Lords for a roundtable discussion on experiences both in clinical practice and in non-clinical careers. The event is free to attend and will also include lunch, refreshments and an optional tour of the Palace of Westminster. The event is kindly being supported by The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and the British Veterinary Association as part of the Vet Futures initiative and offers the opportunity not only to visit the House of Lords and share your experiences in the profession but also to help guide actions being taken to improve veterinary wellbeing and career satisfaction. To apply to attend visit: www.emailmeform.com/builder/emf/VetGrad/HouseofLords and complete the online form by Friday 22nd July. If you are unable to attend in person but would like to contribute to the discussion the online form can also be used to submit comments or suggestions.
Should the event be oversubscribed, priority will be given to vets who qualified in 2010-2012 and also to those able to recommend a fellow young vet not currently working in clinical practice. For further information e-mail Anthony Ridge (Parliamentary Veterinary Intern): firstname.lastname@example.org. More information on the Vet Futures initiative is available at vetfutures.org.uk
