East Midlands Region

The VMG East Midlands region is a Brand new region this year! Covering the counties of Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire in the main, East Midlands will welcome all comers and the meetings in Grantham are easily reached by train and plane!

Cath has already hosted a GDPR lecture in this region during 2018 as part of the first regional roadshow, next up will be Blue Cross discussing Client Retention during Pet Loss in autumn 2018!

My name is Cath Grimsey and l am delighted to be Regional Organiser for East Midlands! I have spent most of my career as a Veterinary Practice Manager, firstly in equine practice in Shropshire, and more lately in Small Animal practice in Cambridgeshire. I come from a business, rather than a clinical background, and first joined the VPMA as a young and eager PM in 1995! I applied to join the (now VMG) Board in 2014 and have sat on that body as Finance Director ever since.

I have previously been Regional Organiser in East Anglia and hope to bring all of the enthusiasm and goodwill that l experienced in that region with me to East Midlands. Following a relocation l now live in Lincolnshire and work part-time for VMG too! I think that if you cut me in half l might read ‘Veterinary Management Group’ through the middle just like a stick of rock! Please do come and join our meetings in East Midlands, they will be regular and active! See Regions page for more detail.
