The Registrar and Secretary of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Jane Hern, has today announced that she will be standing down at the end of the year. 


After 15 years in the job, Jane has decided that it is time to move on and pursue other interests.  She has been pleased to oversee a number of significant reforms and new initiatives in her years leading the organisation.


The College is now embarking on a comprehensive review of its governance, committee and management structures, during which the Officers and Council will consider how best the executive should be led in future.  


Jane says: “I have greatly enjoyed my time with the College and the Trust.  Working with a profession held in such high regard by the public has been a real pleasure.  I wish veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and all my colleagues all the very best for the future.”


The President, Dr Jerry Davies said: “The Royal College has been very fortunate in having the benefit of Jane’s wisdom and guidance for so many years, and we wish her every success in the future.”
