They run from 8.00pm till 9.30pm and combine I hour of CPD with a 30-minute behind the scenes tour of the facilities at Paragon Referral Centre.
Numbers are strictly limited to 16 delegates per evening, so the environment is relaxed, informal and friendly, providing ample opportunity to engage with our speaker(s) and with our wider team when touring the centre.
A range of topics will be featured, some dedicated specifically for Vets and others for Veterinary Nurses.

To help us keep abreast of your opinions and ongoing professional CPD needs, we will ask you to complete a feedback form before you leave.
