In June it was announced that Veterinary Nurse Hayley Walters had won the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Golden Jubilee Award, in honour of her exceptional contribution to her profession. Hayley travelled to London to collect her award at the college’s Annual General Meeting and Awards Day on the 11th July.
‘It was a very formal, enjoyable day. I'm thrilled to receive the award and hope it will raise awareness of the importance of veterinary nurses in improving animal welfare not just in practice but internationally as well.’ Hayley Walters
The Dick Vet and JMICAWE is delighted that she has won the award, in honour of her exceptional contribution to her profession. The award was created in 2011 and she is only the 3rd person to receive it.
