Nominate your nurse for the Petplan Veterinary Awards!
We’ve joined forces with the British Veterinary Nursing Association (BVNA) to call for nominations for managers and nurses to the Petplan Veterinary Awards which takes place in April 2014. Nominations for nurses and managers tend to lag far behind those for the vets who get a lot of public votes. So we need you to help us raise the profile of the other hard-working members of your practice and give them a boost! BVNA are calling upon their members to nominate their practice managers, and we are asking you to nominate your nurse or nurses. Simples!
You don’t need to produce a long, detailed testimonial, although obviously the more information you can give to support your nomination, the more the judges have to go on. But a heart-felt simple paragraph or two entered online is absolutely fine, outlining why your nurse deserves the award. If you’ve 10 minutes to spare, this is a fantastic way to boost your staff morale and just say thanks for their efforts. Plus, every nominee receives a certificate that they can display in the practice.
So do it now: nominating someone for the category of Nurse of the Year is very easy. The whole process can be done online quickly and easily by visiting https://www.petplanvet.co.uk/veterinary-practice-insurance/veterinary-awards/. The deadline for nominations is the 31st January 2014.

|"Being a Practice Manager can be a very lonely position, but with Regional Meetings, forums and CPD events, you always feel you can chat to someone who knows exactly what it's like to be in your shoes. I have made so many useful business contacts by being a member of the VPMA, but most of all I feel I've made some fantastic friends too." Rebekka Fiorani, Practice Manager Clent Hills Group|
