ABSTRACT
In this article the author discusses on the proposed revision of the Veterinary Surgeons Act in Great Britain. The author mentions that the scope of the proposals is narrower compared to the complicated package of proposals embraced by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Council in 2005. The author stresses that RCVS' consultation document centers on the disciplinary means for the veterinary profession, disciplinary jurisdiction and powers, and the composition of the RCVS Council.
