Veterinary medicines: making the most of SQPs
  1. Michael Clarke

    Michael Clarke graduated from London in 1984 and after working in small animal and mixed practices for six years became principal of a small animal practice in Bamber Bridge. He has been a member of the Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) Council since 1996, and was SPVS president in 2004 and 2005. Currently, he organises the final-year student seminar in Lancaster and is the SPVS representative on the BVA Medicines Group.


IN a previous issue of In Practice (April 2008, Vol 30, pp 225–227), Phil Sketchley outlined the Veterinary Medicines Regulations' new distribution categories and rules for supply. Here, Michael Clarke looks at the implications of these regulations for practitioners, and suggests ways that veterinary practices can ensure that they make the best use of the medicines supply environment
