Incorporation and its implications for veterinary practice
  1. John Gripper

    John Gripper spent 30 years as a partner in mixed practice in the Cotswolds. He is a past-president of SPVS and, for 24 years, was a member of the RCVS council. He is now a director of Anval, Manor Veterinary Exports and the World Society for the Protection of Animals.


FOLLOWING a decision by its Council in November last year, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons modified its advice on incorporation and acknowledged that the College has no legal powers to prevent members forming a company for the ownership and management of a veterinary practice. Here, John Gripper attempts to predict the consequences of a decision which, he says, has far-reaching implications for practice.
