Alan Gordon

Alan GordonI qualified in 1979 from the Royal Dick in Edinburgh and have spent my whole career in mixed practice in Northern Ireland. In my early years in practice I was involved in the N I Region BSAVA, starting as Pet Savers Rep. and finishing as Chairperson. More recently I have been a board member of the Veterinary Surgeons Supply Company and council member of AVSPNI. I also served as President of AVSPNI and was involved in setting up the company to tender for TB Testing in the province which, in the light of day was not needed!

However the company still exists in case of any future opportunities to tender. Within the practice I have always been involved in the mentoring of new assistants and the relationship between the practice and the community by giving talks to interested groups in the small animal and farm sector. Outside the profession I have also served on the Board of Swim Ulster, acting as Chairman during an illness.
