Teamwork is regarded as a core skill within the veterinary nursing profession. The ability to work with other members of the clinical team is critical to the health and welfare of veterinary patients, client satisfaction and the success of the veterinary business. The stages of teambuilding and Belbin team roles are presented here as examples of teamworking theory that may be applied in practice.
