This month we are delighted to congratulate our own consultant editor, Perdi Welsh, on achieving the College of Animal Welfare Professional Development Award for Outstanding Service to the Veterinary Nursing Profession. Her efforts are significant and include such achievements as helping to implement the first block-release veterinary nursing course in Northern Ireland; helping to set up the UK's first Veterinary Skills Centre; and, by delivering higher education within the Graduate Diploma in Veterinary Nursing which equips veterinary nurses with the skills and confidence to provide best practice veterinary nursing care.

Perdi is also to be commended for promoting the importance of academic writing skills to her students and has assisted a number to publish and contribute to the growing body of evidence that is driving the profession forward into a new age of professionalism. This act in itself cannot be underestimated as our profession is, at its heart, a developing profession and each contribution is significant in that it adds to the growing body of knowledge that supports evidence-based processes and best practice guidelines of care.
