Rossdales celebrates 60 years in practice with “Diamond Series” CPD

Rossdales Veterinary Surgeons, one of the largest independent equine veterinary practices in Europe, is celebrating 60 years of service to its clients and is hosting some unique “Diamond Series” CPD events to mark this special anniversary.

Founded by Peter Rossdale in Newmarket in 1959, today the practice has a team of 50 veterinary surgeons and has established an international reputation for providing world class ambulatory, referral and laboratory services. The team is led by RCVS, European and American recognised veterinary specialists and operates from four sites in Newmarket, Exning, Hertfordshire and Lambourn.

Rossdales is also widely recognised for providing high quality educational courses for veterinary and veterinary nursing professionals at the world-renowned Rossdales Equine Hospital in Exning. Each year, the hospital hosts a large number of CPD courses, one of which has been established for more than 25 years. Respected throughout the veterinary profession, these courses frequently include internationally recognised guest speakers who lecture alongside Rossdales’ specialist clinicians, with delegates attending from as far afield as Europe, Singapore, Dubai and Australia.

To celebrate the practice’s Diamond Anniversary, Rossdales is hosting a special “Diamond Series” of CPD events in 2019 in addition to its usual programme of educational courses.

Mike Shepherd, Managing Partner at Rossdales, said: “Since the practice was established by Peter Rossdale in 1959, it has always prided itself on clinical research and the willing distribution of this and other information to the veterinary profession. This ‘Diamond Anniversary’ series of CPD events is an initiative that we hope will benefit many of our veterinary colleagues. The first of these special events, the Diamond Series Veterinary Nursing Congress, was held at the beginning of June and was fully subscribed. We’re very pleased by the excellent feedback it generated.”

Two further “Diamond Series” events are scheduled and aimed at veterinary surgeons and veterinary students respectively:

The Diamond Series Veterinary Surgeons Congress takes place on Friday,12 and Saturday, 13 July 2019 and is intended for all veterinary surgeons with an interest in equine or mixed practice. It has a detailed programme covering a wide area of subjects, with talks provided by 12 veterinary surgeons from Rossdales Equine Hospital and Rossdales Laboratories. It also includes admission to The Moët & Chandon July Festival, at Newmarket Racecourse on Saturday, 13 July.

The Diamond Series Undergraduate Congress will take place on Saturday, 10 and Sunday, 11 August 2019. This course is aimed at all current veterinary undergraduates wishing to gain more knowledge and experience in the fields of equine veterinary medicine and surgery. There will be talks and presentations from 9 veterinary surgeons from Rossdales Equine Practice, Rossales Equine Hospital and Rossdales Laboratories. There will additionally be a convivial course dinner on the Saturday evening.
