Pam qualified from the RVC in 1979 and worked in mixed practice for the first part of her career, then was a partner in a small animal hospital for 17 years.
She was a Practice Standards Inspector from the beginning of the BSAVA practice standards scheme and continued with the RCVS scheme, becoming Senior Inspector before moving on to become an independent veterinary investigator.
Pam has been appointed Acting Lead Assessor and Veterinary Advisor since April 2015. She has been involved in Assessor training and is very keen on consistency of assessment visits.
She has been a member of BSAVA committees and, as a BSAVA representative on the Practice Standards Group for the last few years, she is always keen to encourage feedback from members.
Pam is editor of the BSAVA Guide to the Use of Veterinary Medicines, an SQP assessor for AMTRA and still does some locum work in her spare time.
She lives in the Peak district with her husband and teenage son, and two very badly behaved dogs!
