Congratulations to six of our Associates who have been admitted to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Fellowship for 2020.

The Fellowship aims to advance veterinary standards by providing a resource of independent knowledge to the profession.

All six Linnaeus Associates were admitted for their meritorious contributions to clinical practice.

Clinical Director, RCVS and European Specialist in Small Animal Surgery (Orthopaedics) Toby Gemmill and head of diagnostic imaging, RCVS and European Specialist Andrew Parry both from Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service, in Solihull have been recognised.

From Wear Referrals, in County Durham, RCVS and European Specialist in small animal surgery Jon Hall was been admitted, along with Elvin Kulendra, RCVS and European Specialist in small animal surgery at North Downs Specialist Referrals, in Surrey.

In addition, Louise Clark, RCVS and EBVS European Specialist in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia from Davies Veterinary Specialists, and Tom Clarke, RCVS Advanced Practitioner in small animal surgery and Clinical Director from Abbey House Veterinary Hospital were also admitted.

Professor Séverine Tasker, Chief Medical Officer at Linnaeus, congratulated the new fellows and said the recognition highlighted the exceptional level of skill and expertise that we at Linnaeus and our clients are able to call on.

“We count some of the finest specialists, veterinary clinicians and nurses in the UK among our team and we are truly delighted to see our Associates recognised in this way.

“To have six specialists admitted to the RCVS Fellowship is a real tribute to the talent and dedication our people bring to the veterinary world and we are extremely proud of them.

“Delivering on our purpose to create a better world for pets has never been more relevant than now, so this recognition reflects the fact that we set the standard in veterinary medicine, research and care provision, to ensure the highest appropriate standard of care of pets.”

RCVS president Mandisa Greene said: “Many congratulations to all those who joined the RCVS Fellowship this year. It is a fantastic achievement and it can only help to enhance the status of our learned society, the veterinary profession and veterinary science in general.”
