Why Non-UK trained vets struggle with UK practice 

Beginning your career in the UK is nerve-wrecking and can make you feel very nervous. What if you don’t know what to do with your cases? What’s the vaccination protocol for the practice? Who can you ask help from? Are the nurses allowed to do sedate your patient without you there? What are the rules you have to follow if you want to prescribe some phenobarbital to your epileptic patient? Why are your colleagues talking behind your back? Why did that client complain when they had told you everything was fine? Will you lose your license if you accidently give 10x the dose of meloxicam and your patient goes into acute renal failure?…


These questions can haunt you and make you feel worried about going to work. It’s much better to learn from someone else than from making mistakes in this case!


And that’s why you should take this workshop, so you can work on:


The Induction to Practice Workshop teaches you how the UK system works.


We cover the main culture differences that are the biggest barrier for your client and team relationships.


We cover basic clinical skills expected in UK practice and the standards of practice that are commonly used.
