The RCVS register veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses to practise in the UK, and regulate their educational, ethical and clinical standards.
This publication used to accompany the Annual Review but has since become a stand alone document. It is 32 pages of infographics, charts, tables and figures detailing the number of UK veterinary students, the distribution of veterinary surgeons and nurses across the UK, to a summary of the number of complaints and disciplinary hearings we have dealt with. It has proved an useful tool to send to journalists and MPs and is produced as a printed brochure and a pdf file.
This newsletter is issued three times a year and is usually a substantial 24 to 32 pages long. There is a lot of information to pack in so balancing white space with squared up and cut-out images helps to improve readability of the text heavy document. The use of pull quotes, captions and sub-headings makes the content more accessible and therefore helps the reader navigate through the publication.
