Our structure

BVA Welsh Branch

BVA Welsh Branch exists to represent members in Wales. It brings together representatives of our specialist and territorial divisions, Government, academic institutions, and research organisations in Wales.

If you're a BVA member living in Wales, you'll automatically be a member of BVA Welsh Branch.

Role of Welsh Branch

Our aims are to:

  • Foster the interests of the veterinary profession in Wales
  • Promote BVA in Wales
  • Advise on the consensus view of BVA members in Wales on Welsh and UK issues, particularly with reference to the Welsh Assembly Government, the National Farmers Union and the Farmers Union of Wales, and Welsh animal welfare organisations
  • Promote meetings in any part of Wales for the discussion of veterinary topics and kindred subjects, including assisting in the promotion of CPD provided by the territorial and specialist divisions
