What is the CMA Review?

The Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) recently announced that they would launch a review into consumer experiences & business practices in the provision of veterinary services for household pets within the UK. They are keen to hear from both owners & veterinary practitioners/workers on subjects such as the pricing of services, out of hours & emergency vet provisions, the knowledge (or lack of) of whether a practice is independent or part of a chain & also how prescriptions & medications are arranged & sold. The CMA Review was launched in September 2023. You can read more in detail here
