ONCORE’s Jill Macdonald has been leading an ongoing project over the past year and a half to devise a Veterinary Nurse-specific client communication ‘model’.
This short article, compiled by Veterinary Nurse Sally Ward from the Tilehurst Veterinary Centre, relays the journey that she took in setting up Physiotherapy Clinics in her practice, and the many rewards (some of which were unexpected) that this brought to Sally, her patients and their owners.
Veterinary nurse, and previous participant on our ‘Nurse Clinics – putting our ideas into practice’ course, Teresa Newsome, tells us about how working as a team to develop nurse clinics has had an impact on more than just their bottom line.
An overview of the basics of motivation, and how motivation can help us to achieve team members who work to higher standards, learn faster, have more ideas and are less resistant to change. Sound good?
If you’d like any advice on on running nurse clinics in your practice, then contact us anytime – Jill will be more than happy to talk about clinics anytime, and there is no obligation to book a course – we’re just happy to help practices wherever we can.

Staff appraisals are of course a great opportunity for your team members to talk about their own difficulties, challenges, and how to move past them; as well as their goals and what they want to achieve in the future; however they’re also a great opportunity to consider where you want your practice to be going, and how those wonderful and gifted team members can help you to get there!
