Profession invited to pay tribute to Dr David Bartram
Dr David Bartram was an internationally renowned researcher on mental health issues.

An online book of remembrance will remain open until the end of the year.

An online Book of Remembrance has been opened in memory of veterinary surgeon and mental health advocate, Dr David Bartram.

A graduate of the Royal Veterinary College, Dr Bartrum spent three years in mixed, mainly farm animal, practice before moving into the pharmaceutical sector. 

During his career, David was actively involved in academic research in veterinary mental health and wellbeing.  In 2013, he was the recipient of BVA's Chiron Award for outstanding contributions to the profession.

An elected member of RCVS Council (2014-2018), Dr Bartram's research findings have been widely published and presented at conferences worldwide. His 2017 speech in the House of Commons about his own struggles with mental illness can be found at vetmindmatters.org

The RCVS commented: "It was with much sorrow that we learned recently of the death of veterinary surgeon and former RCVS Council member, Dr David Bartram.

"David was an elected member of Council from 2014-2018, during which time he was a founding member of the Mind Matters Initiative Taskforce.

"He was admitted to the RCVS Fellowship in 2010 and, as well as being a valued part of the Zoetis team, he was an internationally renowned researcher on mental health issues."

The memorial book will remain open until the end of the year, after which a printed copy will be shared with his family.
