RCVS Honours and Awards 2019: A chance to recognise outstanding achievement

Nominations are now open for the 2019 RCVS Honours & Awards, in which we encourage members of the veterinary professions to think about the individuals who they know that far exceed expectation and ought to be recognised for it.

Stephen May and Dr Alemayehu HailemariamOur Honours & Awards recognise and celebrate a breadth of achievement across the veterinary world and encompass, for example, veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and laypeople who have contributed to the health and welfare of animals, to the veterinary profession as a whole or public health.

If you know someone whose achievements are outstanding and who has worked above-and-beyond the call of duty in the fields of veterinary medicine or science, or related areas, you can use the RCVS Honours & Awards to try and ensure that they are considered for wider recognition.

The deadline for putting forward your nomination is Friday 18 January 2019. Successful nominees for RCVS Honours & Awards will be invited to attend Royal College Day - our Annual General Meeting and awards ceremony - on Friday 12 July 2019.
