RCVS Knowledge appoints new Executive Director

18 August 2016

RCVS Knowledge is delighted to announce that Chris Gush has been appointed as Executive Director.

Chris brings a wealth of experience - he is joining RCVS Knowledge from the Royal College of General Practitioners and has led its innovation, improvement and research department helping to improve the quality and impact of care provided by general practitioners.

He has led the department as Assistant Director from a small specialist unit to its current position as central to the development and delivery of the RCGP’s vision. He has been credited with the transformation of the College’s clinical activity and resulting growth in influence, both within its own membership and at a national policy level.

Chris says “I am delighted to be taking on this role at such an exciting time for RCVS Knowledge, helping to develop evidence-based veterinary knowledge and to support evidence based clinical decision-making by veterinary professionals. I look forward to working with colleagues to provide the profession with up to date research to inform treatment decisions.”

Chris has been extensively involved with bringing evidence-based medicine into the hands of general practitioners and RCVS Knowledge is excited for him to bring this experience to the global veterinary community.

Chris is due to take up his appointment on Tuesday 6 September.
