Dr Gregory Dale

BVetBio/BVSc, MBBS, MPhil, MCritCare

Greg is qualified as both a veterinarian and a medical practitioner. He has worked in large animal and small animal practice, with a particular interest in emergency and critical care. This interest in critical care led him down a path of studying medicine, where he is now in the final stages of anaesthesia specialty training. His goal is to improve patient safety (both human and animal) with a focus on human factors and the design of work systems and processes.

Greg’s experience places him in a unique position to compare aspects of practice between the two professions. He considers electronic prescribing to be the highest priority for change in the animal health industry and is excited for the benefits that VetRx will offer to all stakeholders.
