Hayley Walters Achieves a Second Award for Welfare Contributions
We are thrilled to announce that JMICAWE Team Member Hayley
Walters has been awarded CEVA Veterinary Nurse of the Year 2015.
You may remember from a previous blog that the JMICAWE was
visited by a camera team from CEVA to make a short video on Hayley and all the
work she has done as part of her role in the team and as an anaesthesia
veterinary nurse. She attended an awards ceremony in Birmingham last week,
where the video was shown, and beat all of the competition to achieve her
second award in a year, following her success in winning the Royal College of
Veterinary Surgeons Veterinary Nurse Golden Jubilee Award last summer.
Whilst in Birmingham, Hayley attended her first BSAVA
International Affairs Committee meeting and raised concerns relating to the use
of live animals in teaching clinical and surgical skills to veterinary students
in developing countries. She also highlighted the need for a veterinary nurse
education programme in developing countries to raise the standard of inpatient
care. These concerns will be taken, with a report, to the WSAVA annual
conference in Bangkok in May this year. Hayley was invited on to this committee
earlier this year by its chair Ross Allan and is the first veterinary nurse
ever to become a member.
We are sure
you’ll join us in congratulating Hayley on another amazing achievement!
