The Animal Health Professions Register (AHPR) aims to raise standards within animal health professions and provide a comprehensive register of appropriately qualified practitioners to enable the general public and the veterinary profession to select the right treatment and a well-qualified practitioner for their animals.
In 2020 the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Legislation advised “Veterinary Surgeons should ensure, before delegation (for treatment), that they are confident that the musculoskeletal therapist is appropriately qualified and competent; indicators can include membership of a voluntary register with associated standards of education and conduct, supported by a disciplinary process”
AHPR fulfils all these indicators. By registering with the AHPR you can demonstrate your dedication to maintaining high academic and practical skills and therefore ultimately improving animal health and welfare.
The AHPR will represent you to important organisations such as the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and DEFRA. The AHPR also communicates with insurance companies to ensure they are aware of the professional nature of our registrants and make sure the register is promoted in the media.
