A big THANK YOU to the huge number of you who nominated Orchard House in the National Vet Awards 2019, the veterinary version of the Oscars.

This year, we have had a record number of nominations across all 5 categories: Veterinary Practice of the Year, Vet of the Year, Vet Nurse of the Year, Practice Support Staff of the Year, and Practice Manager of the Year.

Your nominations led to TWO members of our team being Finalists in the same category, the first time this has ever happened.  Zoe and Graham were both finalists in the Vet Practice Support Staff of the Year award.

The winners were announced at the awards “black-tie” dinner in Birmingham on 4th April. Over 46,000 nominations were received nationally, and only 12 individuals and 3 practices make the finals – having two finalists is an amazing achievement!

Unfortunately neither Zoe nor Graham won the Petplan practice support staff of the year award however all of us here at Orchard House are immensely proud of them both for being nominated as finalists.

The winner of the award was Sharon Scaratt from Blue House Veterinary Centre in Stoke on Trent. We are delighted that Petplan chose to honour Sharon because sadly she passed away before the awards were presented.
