EIG disbanded

EIG disbanded

The England Implementation Group has been judged by the Minister to have completed what he saw as its prime purpose of taking RCS to the point that a new body can form to take this on. Despite the Eves report which recommended re-tasking the EIG and allowing them to continue work in other areas such as developing the various sector councils the EIG will cease at the final meeting on 24th Sept 2009. 

Vetarks MD Peter Scott has led the companion animal work in the EIG and this will continue with Peter liaising between the various sub-sector groups and the Chief Veterinary Officer who has taken over the EIG role of developing the sector councils.
