The VETcpd Congress is making a return this year, and will be held at Sandy Park on the outskirts of Exeter on 26th and 27th September.

Organised by The Veterinary Edge in association with Simon Guiton of VETcpd, there will be three streams running throughout, with delegates able to gain 14 hours of CPD – or 16 if prepared to skip the tempting two-course lunches.

Speakers include:

  • Dr David Williams (ophthalmology)
  • Dr Marge Chandler (nutrition and internal medicine)
  • Matthew Oxford (dentistry)
  • Alasdair Hotston Moore (soft tissue surgery and wound management)
  • Richard Saunders (rabbits and exotics)
  • Alison Hayes (oncology, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy)
  • Fergis Allerton (internal medicine)
  • Professor Stuart Carmichael (orthopaedics)
  • Russell Chandler (regenerative medicine)
  • Joanne Harris (cardiology)
  • Elin Williams (feline behaviour)
  • Julian Hoad (ultrasound), Iris Heinsoo (internal medicine)
  • Nicola Lakeman (aspects of nursing)
  • Tom Smith (nursing septic and ECC patients),
  • Shelly Jefferies (wound management)
  • Charlotte Glover (cardiology)

Sessions run from 10am to 6pm on the first day (followed by a happy hour in the exhibition) and from 9am to 5.15pm on day two.

A two-day pass for vets costs £285 and a one-day pass £170 plus VAT.

The prices will increase after 31st August.

Passes include access to all three streams, a two-course lunch, other refreshments and the congress handbook, which will include summaries of the sessions.

Accommodation is available at the recently opened Courtyard by Marriott Hotel at Sandy Park; other hotels nearby include a Premier Inn and Holiday Inn Express.
