Credit control in mixed practice
  1. Jo Fairley

    Jo Fairley graduated from Bristol University in 1979 with a BSc in botany and zoology. She has been practice manager of the Rowe Veterinary Group since 1981 when the practice moved into purpose built hospital premises. She is a keen member of the Veterinary Practice Management Association.


WE are an 11-vet mixed practice with a purpose-built hospital in a small town in Gloucestershire, and three branch surgeries. Our problems in credit control range from cajoling a cheque out of a large dairy client before the account runs up to £10,000, to apprehending a hamster client who owes £5 and is head-down going towards the exit.
