Dear ABVA Members,
During the difficult times caused by the Covid-19 outbreak, we would like to wish all of our members well and we hope that you are all staying safe. The ABVA Council have discussed the recent changes to government advice and would ask that all members carefully consider the advice offered by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons with respect to working at the current time. It is our responsibility as veterinary professionals not only to consider the welfare of our patients, but to weigh this up against risks to ourselves, our clients and the population as a whole. It has been a challenging time professionally, financially and personally and every case and set of circumstances is different. The ABVA therefore recommends that members use their best clinical judgement in line with the government recommendations, whilst also supporting our colleagues in practice as much as possible.
