2015 Petplan Veterinary Awards
What are the Petplan Veterinary Awards?
Petplan has worked closely with the veterinary profession for over 37 years and sees first hand each day the fantastic work that goes on in veterinary practices across the UK.
We recognise that keeping customers happy and pets healthy is a team effort from the receptionist and support staff right through to the vets and nurses themselves. These awards provide an opportunity for people to recognise the hard work and dedication of veterinary staff and provide a great opportunity for pet owners to say 'thank you'.
When is the nomination period?
Nominations for the Veterinary Awards open in September and run through to the middle of January.
How do I nominate?
The 5 award categories are:
- Practice of the Year
- Practice Manager of the Year
- Practice Support Staff of the Year
- Vet Nurse of the Year
- Vet of the Year
What should I say in my nomination?
Each pet owner will have their own individual reasons for why they think their practice or someone in the team deserves an award. Try to provide specific examples of what the practice or members of the team did to go above and beyond your expectations. What specifically did they do or say? How did they make you feel? What was it that made a difficult experience much more bearable for you or your pet?
How are these awards judged?
Nominations are judged by an independent panel of leading people from the veterinary industry including presidents of the veterinary and nursing associations and previous winners of these awards. These judges have first hand experience of life in practice and are able to use their veterinary expertise to judge who the truly outstanding teams and individuals are from the thousands of nominations received each year. Petplan are not part of the judging panel.
When are the winners announced?
Three finalists will be selected in each category and invited to attend a prestigious award ceremony in April 2015 where the winners will be announced.
