CPD Events In transfusion traumas - how to get the most out of blood

We’re delighted to confirm our programme of 10 regional CPD events across the UK with a packed agenda of interactive CPD, centred around the importance of using blood in veterinary medicine.

The inclusive programme — which is open to vets and vet nurses — coincides with the 10th anniversary of Pet Blood Bank UK. It was set up by Vets Now staff in 2007 to create a national reserve of blood stocks.

This not-to-be-missed event offers:

Tickets cost £50 for veterinary practices who use the Vets Now out-of-hours service and £75 for non-partner practices.
