List of issues the RCVS should consider when reviewing the provision of 24/7 emergency cover:
The OOH service providers state in their literature that their vets are OOH specialists ,who are fresh faced and bushy tailed having not worked the previous day. But actually often they are just people who work for donor practices who are,moonlighting and are not speciaIsts in anything. They are in fact just doing a night shift for the extra income.
Should mandatory house visits be removed from the GTPC?
