The VMD would like to assure our stakeholders, in the light of the enhanced precautions to reduce the risk and impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), that we continue to provide our services to regulate veterinary medicines.

However, with immediate effect we will postpone or reschedule inspections of premises due in the coming weeks. We are also making alternative arrangements for our stakeholder meetings including holding them by telephone conference.

In line with government advice we have changed our working practices so that our staff will be doing this working from home. Our staff will be contactable as usual and we will continue to operate our switchboard.

However, if you have any difficulties contacting us by phone, please email your individual VMD contacts or our general email address at postmaster@vmd.gov.uk which is monitored throughout the day.

We will work closely with you to keep you informed and to minimise the impact on the services that we provide.
