Progressing into Management

11th Sept 2019

Moving into a management role can be daunting, particularly if you are promoted within your practice and so find yourself managing colleagues. But if you make the transition smoothly, it can be very rewarding both to the practice and to you personally. There are some key things you can learn such as how to give positive feedback, the art of delegation and the importance of consistency. Becky and Fiona, Business Support Managers with VetPartners, both have long experience of supporting vet practice. They will describe different leadership styles and management techniques. Becky will run the first course; Fiona the second, including role specific case studies and scenarios to help you tailor the advice to your specific situation.

Wellbeing in Practice

18th Sept 2019

Successful practices are those that understand the importance of looking after their teams. In the three years since SPVS and RCVS Mind Matters Initiative launched the Vet Wellbeing Awards, we have seen the number and quality of entries grow. These events, run in partnership with VMG, will provide an opportunity to spread the word, allowing other practices to share the initiatives and experiences of the winners and those who were highly commended. A workplace wellbeing trainer from the mental health charity Mind will set the scene and a Health and Safety expert who has extensive experience of vet practice will explain your legal obligations around stress management. Tracey Morley Jewkes, who managed one of the award winning practices, shares her and other practices’ experiences. She will also make the business case for investing in workplace wellbeing, from improving staff turnover, helping recruitment and boosting the bottom line.

Quality Improvement

27th Nov 2019

Clinical audits, protocols and checklists are increasingly commonplace in vet practices and are a requirement for higher levels of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme and the Awards. Often these are devised by practice owners and clinical directors and not shared as widely as they might be with the wider team. For practice managers, it can be felt that these are a clinical matter, and yet, much of their implementation is about management.   This session, led by Pam Mosedale (lead Practice Standards assessor), will explore what is meant by Clinical Governance in a veterinary context, what it might look like in practice and the role of a manager in setting up and implementing good Clinical Governance. She will be joined by a practice leader to share their experience of practical implementation.
