    50. The 'Not-Christmas' Special

    50. The 'Not-Christmas' Special

    It's our 50th episode today!
    Sometimes when you’re editing a podcast, the most frustrating part is how much of the gold just can’t quite make the cut, as there isn’t time to squeeze everything in to each episode. In this season, there was so much wonderful audio and fantastic conversation that hadn’t quite made it into the first 9 episodes, so today, for our season finale, we’re bringing you the best of the rest of the conversations we’ve featured so far.
    It’s like a Christmas special, but as it’s not Christmas, it’s a just a ‘special’. You’ll hear snippets of chat from quite a few of our guests here, and don’t forget, you can go back and listen to each of their full conversations in the back catalogue. 
    This season is brought to you by Virtual Veterinary Specialists. Ever wish you could just conjure up a specialist to help you, in person, with a difficult case? Well now you can! The wonders of cutting-edge medical technology means that VVS specialists can be instantly on hand to live-guide you through procedures.

    49. Christelle Le Roux and Georgina Catlow - The making of a mentor

    49. Christelle Le Roux and Georgina Catlow - The making of a mentor

    If you’re lucky, there might be someone in your life or work that really inspires you, who has an impact on the trajectory of your career and the path you choose to take. It might be a teacher at school, a family member or a friend. For Christelle Le Roux it was a lecturer at uni. Christelle qualified from the University of Pretoria already knowing that she wanted to be a diagnostic imaging specialist and has followed that dream through an internship, residency and diploma. She met Georgina Catlow, a vet in Surrey, through VVS, with Christelle teaching and mentoring Georgina throughout her diagnostic imaging certificate. Georgina qualified in 2015 and has built her skills and interest in imaging over the past 5 years - you can feel the shared passion they both hold for the discipline in this chat, and the impact that having an unofficial mentor has had for both of them on developing that passion.

    48. Ruth Clark and Lydia Morgan - 'More than just a vet'

    48. Ruth Clark and Lydia Morgan - 'More than just a vet'

    Today we’re hearing about life behind the scenes in the world of virtual veterinary referrals. Ruth Clark and Lydia Morgan are both vets themselves with years of experience in general practice, who have now transferred their skills to work as commercial managers at VVS. As you’ll hear in this conversation they clearly both love their job and the satisfaction they gain from helping others in practice, and Lydia and Ruth are really great examples of vets who’ve acknowledged the wide set of skills we all have in the veterinary space, and subsequently diversified their careers. I love that Lydia says “There’s no such thing as just a vet” - she’s so right. We can all be vets doing whatever it is that makes us tick.

    47. Kelly Burrow, Inês Serrão and Avner Hoida - Teamwork makes the dream work

    47. Kelly Burrow, Inês Serrão and Avner Hoida - Teamwork makes the dream work

    They say that ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ right, and I couldn’t agree more. This ethos was so evident when I chatted to Kelly Burrow, Inês Serrão, and Avner Hoida from Medivet in Enfield. Kelly became a partner at Medivet at a relatively young age, but is clearly an inspiring and caring boss, and I was so impressed by her, Inês and Avner. They’re a young team but one that comes across as incredibly well supported and full of confidence, with everyone given a chance to progress and learn, and I absolutely loved hearing about how the vets and nurses in their practice are encouraged to stretch themselves and try new things. We started by talking about how Kelly manages her team to create an environment in which everyone can thrive.

    46. Simona, Susana, Pedro, Christelle and Nuala - Specialists, they're humans too...

    46. Simona, Susana, Pedro, Christelle and Nuala - Specialists, they're humans too...

    What’s the collective noun for a group of veterinary specialists? I’ve no idea but we’ve got a right good bunch of them on the podcast today. In this conversation I was joined by Simona Radaelli, Susana Silva, Christelle le Roux, Pedro Oliveira and Nuala Summerfield, who are all diploma holders in their various fields. They have, between them, worked in a multitude of different countries and top notch referral centres and have wildly impressive credentials. We talked a lot about teaching in this conversation, with the specialists talking about their passion and enjoyment of teaching, and what they feel it gives them in return.

    45. Steph Sorrell and Thea Gardner - The joy of a lightbulb moment

    45. Steph Sorrell and Thea Gardner - The joy of a lightbulb moment

    There are many of us in the vet world who love to learn, and I know a lot of vets and nurses relish the time they get to spend acquiring new skills and new knowledge, and how much pleasure it can give people to master something different. But some people are also gifted with a true passion for teaching, and Steph Sorrell definitely falls into that category. Steph is a medicine diplomat who locums around the UK in different referral hospitals, and is part of the medicine service at VVS. She met Thea Gardner, a branch partner at Medivet, when Steph taught an online interactive case-based CPD course during the pandemic. Thea has recently passed her small animal medicine certificate and here they discuss teaching and learning as vets, why the time pressures in general practice sometimes make this difficult and why learning on the job has its benefits.
