BFBA responds to BVA 'Vet-led' team poster

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) have recently circulated a poster to their members encouraging the development of their relationships with allied professionals in what is referred to as a 'Vet-led' team. The poster, featuring a 'hub and spoke' model, did not include farriers. 

The BFBA "encourage all of our members to create, maintain and promote positive working relationships with those professionals responsible for the health and care of all equines", we were however disappointed to not see farriers recognised within their marketing materials.

Last week our letter was published in the Vet Record; their response is also shown here.
