Craig won the Vet of the year category in the veterinary Oscars held in Birmingham on 20th April, 2006.
Following his nomination by a group of colleagues, supported by a large number of testimonials from colleagues in Cedarmount, clients, veterinary surgeons from the province, kennels and catteries and animal sanctuaries, the judges awarded him the top prize. Wendy Turner (of Pet rescue fame) presented the awards at a glittering ceremony in Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Hall.
Craig is grateful to all who gave such glowing testim
onials – indeed it is fair to say – very moved by many.
“Cedarmount Veterinary Clinic is at heart a team effort – each member of the practice contributes massively – and all are valued – everyone shares in the acclaim of this award!
Thanks you to everyone involved in the nomination – it is very heartening to have so much support!! We are overwhelmed by the response following the award – cards and presents galore – it`s like Christmas come early.
Following an appearance on UTV Live, and on U105, Craig will appear occasionally as the “Vet on the Sofa”, and on Carolyn Stewart’s afternoon show on the radio. There is also an interview on 6 May on Radio Ulster.
Once again, Thanks to everyone involved. It’s been a great honour to achieve this award.”
