The VetMed CPR Retreat

Our signature Veterinary CPR Retreat held in the stunning Cotswolds, UK.

A luxury break away from the bustle of veterinary practice. A place where you can connect with fellow vet med professionals and really focus on you. Gorgeous accommodation and a private chef enabling you to really focus on you and your personal development.

Our venue is the incredible Cotswold Park Barns. Beautifully converted and with an excellent attention to detail the accommodation is truly special. Surrounded by glorious countryside this is the place to completely disconnect from the day to day of life. Ample free parking and incredible views, this truly is a unique place to rest, recharge and learn. A maximum of 10 attendees means an exclusive vibe with plenty of opportunity to discuss and explore topics.

Run by fellow Vet professional this CPR retreat is all about clinical progression and personal development. A strong holistic focus on the human factors and training elements of CPR. The main focus of the weekend is the RECOVER rescuer workshop. Taking place over 2 days the workshop provides the platform for attendees to really develop their practical CPR skills. Building on the online course, which is mandatory prior to attending, the workshops cover a range of scenarios. Exploring debriefing and team dynamics as well as the technicalities of CPR.

It’s not all walks, yoga, and yummy food though this is where you will build your confidence with CPR. Where you can really explore how to communicate with your team, deliver CPR effectively and leave feeling empowered to spread your newly established confidence!

If you wish to bring a partner, then we also offer reduce rates for partners/friends that include all meals and accommodation.
