This Register clarifies the standard of professionalism of musculoskeletal care given to animals. In the past, there were so many levels and types of qualification, and professional titles, that they confused animal owners and vets, and probably harmed the credibility of the sector, leading to reduced enquiries and referrals. In all, this was unhelpful for animal welfare.
The RAMP Register now enables animal owners and veterinary professionals to choose their musculoskeletal practitioner with confidence. RAMP makes no distinctions between different forms of training, but only of the standards of care given in practice.
This definitive listing has created a one-stop-shop that is quick and easy to reference. This means it can be used easily by veterinary professionals to locate a practitioner covering their area, with sound information about their credentials.
Becoming a registrant means you are a practitioner dedicated to high-quality care.
Being listed therefore ensures that your name will be confirmed when vets and animal owners search for a competent professional. This will dissolve the confusion that has developed in the marketplace, and create clear and fair grounds for owners and professinals to make properly informed choices.
SPECIAL INSURANCE OFFER
RAMP has negotiated a dedicated block scheme with Balens Insurance. This offers full cover for a very good rate of £94 per annum, down from last year. Additional Employers Liability is also available for those who take students out on visits.
This has been agreed because Registrants following RAMP's Gold Standard quality of practice have reduced insurance risks.
Balens are willing to dovetail new cover with your current scheme. This is a very good offer and worth considering.
