BVA has identified that there is a desire for greater flexibility within veterinary practice working patterns. How to achieve this to suit all parties is the challenge. Most practices have had to make some changes to their working patterns during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is now an opportunity to explore the benefits and barriers of the changes that were made. This survey is part of a project where vets Silvia Janská and Jessica May are researching how flexible working can work to empower the employee, sustain a profitable business and keep a unified team.
