UK faces shortage of vets

The UK’s exit from the EU will exacerbate recruitment problems for the veterinary profession, the British Veterinary Association and Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons have warned.
Recruitment and retention of vets has been a growing concern in the UK and there have been previous calls for the profession to be placed on the Shortage Occupation List. This would reduce restrictions on recruiting vets from abroad, and this will become a necessity post Brexit, the organisations say.
