Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month
Amy Bowcott RVN DipAVN(Surgical)
8 May 2015
Assistant Nurse Manager (Surgical)
Following the launch of Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month, throughout May, Willows will be celebrating the outstanding work of our dedicated veterinary nurses by running a series of features highlighting the various roles our nurses have, specialist skill sets, and above all, excellence in all aspects of patient care.
Our first feature highlights the role of our Assistant Surgical Nurse Manager, Amy Bowcott. After joining the Willows team over 10 years ago, Amy developed a skill and passion for working in the operating theatre environment and ensuring patients receive exemplary care. To further enhance her knowledge, training and skills in this area, Amy studied for the diploma in advanced nursing (surgical) (DipAVN), which she successfully completed and was subsequently promoted to Assistant Surgical Nurse Manager.
Having also completed an ILM level 3 certificate in leadership and management, Amy now has responsibility for the management of the surgical suite at Willows and has written two chapters in a book, one on managing a surgical suite and another on ways to ensure patients are cared for to the highest possible standard 100% of the time.
As well as managing the surgical suite, Amy continues to help with the management of a dedicated clinical support staff team, and the provision of excellent care for both our patients and clients.
When asked to sum up her role, Amy said "Here at Willows, providing outstanding levels of care to our patients and clients is at the forefront of all that we do. In my role in the surgical suite, cases are often complex and stressful for our patients, but even more so for their owners, so ensuring excellent care and support for both is absolutely vital".
