The BVRA Story

The British Veterinary Receptionist Association was set up by Brian Faulkner and Kay Watson-Bray in recognition of the crucial role that veterinary receptionists play in veterinary practice.

The British Veterinary Receptionist Association (BVRA) was launched on 1st October 2017 with the mission of recognising and raising the status of veterinary receptionists within the UK veterinary profession.  BVRA does this by acting as a professional body which focuses on the interests of veterinary receptionists as well as evolving the receptionist’s role through affordable CPD and training.

The BVRA created the Accredited Veterinary Receptionist (AVR) Award which is achieved by working through Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.

Since launch BVRA has gained almost 6000 members around the world and has run two successful Congresses, along with a number of roadshow events around the country. BVRA also facilitates a ‘closed’ Facebook group, exclusive to its members.

BVRA also awards the Veterinary Receptionist of the Year award (VROTY), recognising the outstanding efforts of its members.
