The RCVS has elected Christopher (Kit) Sturgess as its new junior vice president for 2020/21.

Sturgess (pictured), who has served on RCVS council since 2013, works in internal medicine in a private referral practice. In 2006, he became a founding partner in a multidisciplinary referral centre that grew from five to 65 members of staff within five years.

When he is not spending his time in clinics, he pursues other interests within the profession with a focus on education, including as the British Small Animal Veterinary Association’s education committee chair. Sturgess is also a trustee of Cats Protection and the Wildheart Trust.

He is currently the chair of the RCVS finances and resources committee and has been RCVS treasurer for the past three years. He is also a member of a range of committees and groups across the college.
