The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has announced a new collaboration with its local practice, Buckingham Equine Vets (BEV), that it hopes will boost standards of veterinary education and rehabilitation.
The announcement coincides with the opening of BEV’s new, purpose-built equine clinic in Wicken, Buckinghamshire.
The advantages of joining forces will be two-fold, according to its instigators: it will allow vets and veterinary nurses to develop their clinical skills with the benefit of state-of-the-art facilities, and it will offer clients of the Buckingham-based practice the latest diagnostic and treatment services and support from leading experts at the RVC.
Andrew Wallace, director of BEV, said: “To enter into this exciting agreement with the RVC is a major development for our veterinary practice. We are honoured to join in partnership with one of the world’s most renowned veterinary institutions.”
Professor Josh Slater, head of equine medicine and surgery group at the RVC added: “We see tremendous opportunities and mutual benefits in this partnership and believe it is a model for the future.”
