Wellbeing means business at Congress 2024!

Congress News

The wellbeing of every member of the veterinary care team matters if we want to thrive and flourish in practice – that means you too! But what does that actually mean? What do we need to do on a practical level to achieve this?

Join wellbeing and business coach, Tracey Morley Jewkes, at Congress 2024, 25th – 27th January, Hilton Birmingham Metropole, where she will enable you to prioritise and structure a wellbeing programme with traction in a way that resonates with the whole team.

Wellbeing is great for retention, for client experience and for business too. This Wellbeing Means Business session will share with you the 6 priority areas for wellbeing in veterinary practice, including real life practical examples researched from four years of shared learning in shortlisted entries for the Veterinary Wellbeing Awards by SPVS and Mind Matters. So, if you want to save time in finding out what to do and how, benefit from collaborative examples of what really works and help create a magnetic place to work, this session from double Veterinary Wellbeing Award winner Tracey is for you. Joining Tracey will be Mark Johnston, from Vets in Mind Alliance, to talk through the mental health support resources they offer and how to use them to support your team.
