Independent Vetcare Ltd has given five of its practices cheques for £4,000 each. The company has been running a practice competition to boost its preventative healthcare scheme – Pet Health Club – in conjunction with Bayer Animal Health.
Participating practices were spit into four categories based on their Pet Health Club penetration rate at the start of the competition, with the winning practices increasing penetration rates between 14 percent – 26 percent from July to December 2015.
There was also a fifth prize on offer to the practice that decreased their cancellation rate by the most, during the same period, bringing the total prize fund to £20,000, thanks to the support of key supplier Bayer Animal Health.
The winners are:
- Well House Vets, a small two vet practice in East Sussex
- New Malden Vets, large single site practice with a team of eight vets in Surrey (who chose to share their winnings with the runner up practice in this category, Linc Vets)
- Northdale Vets, Lancing branch, the smallest of Northdales’ three sites in West Sussex
- Cater Veterinary’s Craig-y-Don Surgery, the main branch of this two site group, which houses four vets whose special interests include acupuncture, dentistry and soft tissue surgery, in addition to GP treatment for their clients in Llandudno
- The Rowe Veterinary Group’s, Bradley Stoke Hospital in Bristol, a main referral centre for the area which also offers GP services
The teams have full authority to use their winnings in any way they see fit, from investing in new equipment, sprucing up staff facilities or simply dividing amongst the staff.
