About the webinar

The webinar will look at the work that veterinary nurses do in practices, exploring how the value of this is often not obvious and pricing is rarely transparent to reflect their input in patient care.

Looking at the basic economics of veterinary practice we will explain the importance of charging for professional time and the ways we can reasonably achieve this.
