The article reports that Bill Reilly, president of the British Veterinary Association (BVA), has expressed concern over veterinary disease surveillance. At the yearly dinner of BVA in Edinburgh, Scotland, Reilly spoke how disease surveillance can safeguard animals' and human's health and welfare. However, Reilly noted that disease surveillance could be at risk in light of the Animal Health's announcement that it could no longer ensure a ring-fenced budget for Official Veterinarian work.
