Sally Everitt

InFocus Clinical Support Lead

Sally EverittSally qualified from Bristol University in 1981 and spent most of her working life in small animal practice, taking a particular interest in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Throughout her time in practice she developed an interest in how the context in which we work affects the delivery of care to individual patients. This led Sally to undertake a Masters in Advanced Veterinary General Practice (University of Middlesex 2007) and a PhD into the factors affecting clinical decision making in the veterinary consultation (University of Nottingham 2011).

From September 2011 to April 2017 Sally worked as Head of Scientific Policy for the BSAVA providing support to the BSAVA Officers, volunteers, staff, and members, on a wide range of scientific and policy issues.

Sally has now returned to practice on a part time basis to allow time for writing and research.

She joined RCVS Knowledge in May2020 as InFocus Clinical Support Lead.
