VetPol Ltd shine at
UK’s first SQP Congress

Lantra Provider Vetpol Ltd. held the UK’s first Congress for Suitably Qualified Persons (SQP) last month, with the event hailed as a great success by industry professionals in attendance.

The Congress, which took place at St John’s Hotel in Solihull, consisted of an informative day of lectures and quizzes followed by a party and awards evening, celebrating the talent of the crowned CPD champions.

With the informative sessions and quizzes delivered by an array of industry experts, spotlighting the latest updates in the SQP and pet care world, the day counted towards 7.5 hours of CPD points.

Many attendees noted that they were looking forward to applying the knowledge and best practice gained at the event in-store and at their veterinary practices, which will help them provide the best and most up-to-date advice to their customers. There were also plenty of opportunities for personal development, networking and peer learning.

Stacey Godbold, an Associate Veterinary Receptionist at Paddons Vets in Wisbech, was named Vetpol’s CPD Champion of 2023 at the evening awards ceremony. Vetpol also awarded three ‘SQP Ambassador’ awards to Jason Chadwick, Jordan Perkins and Paul Cartledge to appreciate their outstanding efforts to continued SQP excellence. 

Vetpol director Caroline Johnson said: “Having the opportunity to share this achievement with delegates at our recent Congress and see all of the hard work celebrated was a fantastic experience for myself and the rest of the Vetpol team.”

Clare Longstaff, Companion Animal Market Development Officer at Lantra, attended the event and commented: “Vetpol Ltd put on an incredible SQP Congress. It was engaging, informative and really enjoyable! Great to see so many retail staff members in attendance as well as RVN’s/veterinary support staff. I’ve come away with so much knowledge to feedback to my team.”

The Vetpol team are already looking forward to planning the next SPQ congress, promising an even bigger and better event next year!
