She's only gone and done it - Carol is officially the nations best!


Carol Hudson, our Practice Manager was awarded the title of Practice Manager of the Year at the 2016 Petplan Veterinary Awards last night. We are all so proud of her being recognised in this way, especially after she celebrated 30 years of employment only two months ago! She received 37 different nominations for the award, including staff past and present, colleagues within the wider veterinary sector and clients.

The Petplan Veterinary Awards are an annual event to find the UK's top veterinary professionals and this year the six different categories, including Practice Manager, attracted over 21,000 votes.   Nominations can be received from clients, members of the public and colleagues who want specific members of staff to be recognised for the work they do.   All the entries are scrutinised by a specially selected judging panel.

The top three finalists from across the country, for all six categories, are invited to the prestigious Petplan Veterinary Awards.   The winners are a closely guarded secret until the golden envelopes are opened - it's like the Oscars!

Carol attended the awards with her husband Martin and met celebrity guest presenter and comedian Chris Turner.  Carol openly described the evening as a very special night!

'What a very special night, shared with great people from the wonderful veterinary world.  Its a great feeling to know you are appreciated and to be recognised not only by those that nominated me but by the judges too, so I want to say a big thank you to those that nominated me.   I couldn't have asked for a better 30th anniversary gift.  Thanks also to Petplan for organising and hosting such a fantastic awards ceremony.  I also feel very special and privileged to work amongst the most amazing bunch of people!'
