Richard Stephenson, an elected member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Council, has resigned as a Council member with immediate effect.
Dr Stephenson was elected to RCVS Council in 2020, having previously served as an elected member from 2008 to 2016, and resigned on Thursday 3 June 2021 for personal reasons.
RCVS President Mandisa Greene said: “We thank Richard for his service to the RCVS over the past year and in his previous terms. We particularly thank him for his contribution to a number of committees he has served on during both his periods on Council including the Disciplinary, Finance & Resources and Preliminary Investigation Committees. We wish him all the best for the future.”
Professor Stephen May has now taken up the remainder of Richard’s term on Council, to July 2024, as he received the next largest amount of votes in the 2020 RCVS Council election.
