About this book

The third revised edition of this comprehensive book continues to provide an essential source of information on practice management. It gives straightforward guidance to veterinary surgeons setting up in practice for the first time as well as being invaluable to established practitioners and staff keen to improve the efficiency of their business. Those preparing for the Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management will find it particularly helpful. Written by recognised experts in their field Veterinary Practice Management now includes new chapters on veterinary nurse clinics, pharmacy management, management accounts and staff appraisals. There is also new material providing information and advice on partnership contracts, business marketing and health and safety.

This is a book which the VBJ heartily recommends to readers. Veterinary Business Journal "This textbook holds several features which make it a very valuable reference for the practitioner, particularly those established in the UK. It covers the entire scope of Practice Management in a concise, easy to read and yet comprehensive way. The book should be a tremendous help to any practitioner starting in practice, particularly those working with companion animals." European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, 2003
