Dr Mark Patteson, Specialist in Cardiology, Paddy Mannion, Specialist in Imaging and Peter Southerden, European Specialist in Veterinary Dentistry will head up the list of speakers at SPVS/VPMA Focus on Diagnostics Day on 16th October in Daventry.   The theme for the day will be the business and clinical case for doing more ‘in-house’.  

 ‘The best day’s CPD I’ve been to in 10 years’ was the verdict of one attendee to last year’s event and this was echoed by other delegates, a mix of practice owners, managers and clinical directors.

Other seminar subjects include the business and ethical case for laproscopic spays, regenerative medicine and how to make the most of your microscope and digital x-ray.  Brian Faulkner will chair workshops and present a seminar on dashboards and income analysis.

The day is also an excellent opportunity to talk to suppliers of equipment with over 20 relevant and focused exhibitors

The day, held at Staverton Park, Daventry, starts at 10:00am and finishes at 5:00pm.  CPD certificates, lunch and refreshments are included.  The cost is just £100 for SPVS/VPMA members (£150 for non-members).
