FIVP features on BBC Radio Scotland

Rita Dingwall represented the FIVP on BBC Radio Scotland today as part of a nationwide discussion into the Competitions and Markets Authority’s (CMA) review of UK veterinary practices.

Mrs Dingwall, the group’s business development manager, addressed the authority’s concerns that the costs of veterinary fees were increasing faster than other goods and services.

In the interview, Mrs Dingwall told of the rising costs that practices are seeing when purchasing medication and supplies for treatments.

She also commented on the challenges involved with recruiting new veterinary surgeons and nurses, as wage expectations change in line with inflation.
