Authorised SQP register

Vet Skill Ltd has today been authorised as a suitable body to maintain a register for suitably qualified persons (SQPs) to prescribe and supply veterinary medicines classified as POM-VPS and NFA-VPS.

An SQP is a professionally qualified person who is allowed to prescribe, supply and advise on the safe use of these categories of medicines in the UK, such as worming and flea treatments.

This authorisation means that Vet Skill Ltd has adequately demonstrated that they can fulfil all the necessary requirements of the Veterinary Medicines Regulations.
