This week we sit down with Dr Adrian Ward who is a Veterinary and Professional Regulation Consultant. 

We discuss his work within Veterinary, Accountancy, Nursing & Midwifery committees including how they work and why they are important for both clients and practitioners. As a former trustee of the Bella Moss Foundation, Adrian also explains responsible antimicrobial use and does a great 60-Second CPD with some top tips for general practitioners regarding antimicrobial resistance & flea treatment. Last but not least, it wouldn’t be an episode of Veterinary Ramblings if we didn’t discuss various alcoholic beverages and the experiences we’ve had under the influence! 

‘Adrian graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 1996 and spent several years working as a small animal vet in the south of England. After leaving general practice in 2011, he worked for a pharmaceutical company as a Veterinary Advisor and developed an interest in the development of antimicrobial resistance and the strategies that can be used to slow this process.

In 2014 Adrian returned to small animal practice as a locum and began work as a Case Examiner for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in their professional conduct department, later being appointed as a Chair (Fitness to Practice Panel) for the Nursing and Midwifery Council in 2017. He also works as a Lay Member for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.’
