The RCVS Council member will replace Laura Playforth, who is joining IVC Evidensia as group QI director, on the Vets Now board.

We are delighted to welcome Mandisa Greene to the role of medical director on 1 February.

Mandisa qualified from the Royal (Dick) Vet School in Edinburgh in 2008 and has since spent much of her career working in emergency and critical care — leading teams in both daytime and out of hours.

She was president of the RCVS Council in 2020/21 and has also worked for Harper Adams University as a lecturer in veterinary sciences.

She’s currently an RCVS Knowledge trustee, a STEM ambassador and a Vetlife volunteer.

Patricia Colville, Vets Now’s chief operating officer, said: “Mandisa brings a wealth of experience to this role and I’m excited about the prospect of working alongside her.

“She recognises the importance of delivering a caring and quality clinical service and will help ensure every member of our team deliver the best care for the pets they treat.”
