A team of veterinary advisors and policy officials work for the Office of the Chief Veterinary Officer (OCVO).
OCVO is a division within the Department for Natural Resources. Professor Christianne Glossop, the Chief Veterinary Officer for Wales, is head of OCVO.
We have responsibility for raising the standards of health and welfare for all animals kept in Wales – farmed animals, companion animals (pets), sporting and working animals.
In accordance with the Animal Health and Welfare Strategy, the main objectives of OCVO are to:
- protect against the incursion and spread of exotic animal disease and maintain a state of preparedness to deal with any outbreak
- pursue a programme of bovine TB eradication
- control endemic disease
- promote higher standards in order to improve animal health and welfare.
Our work areas include:
- animal by-products
- animal welfare
- endemic diseases, including bovine TB
- exotic diseases
- maintaining an effective working relationship with Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA).
We work closely with APHA, our colleagues within the Department for Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the other devolved administrations.
