What is an SQP?

What is a RAMA SQP and how can they help?

A RAMA (or SQP) is a Registered Animal Medicines Advisor / Suitably Qualified Person, whom are registered with AMTRA (Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority) and qualified to prescribe and advise on veterinary medicine, licenced as POM-VPS, NFA-VPS and AVM-GSL.

SQPs must abide by the SQP Code of Practice as well as VMD (Veterinary Medicines Directorate) guidance.
All RAMA/ SQPs must undertake compulsory CPD (continuing Professional Development), which must be accredited by AMTRA.

RAMA/ SQPs can advise and prescribe on animal medicine within their area of qualification, for example an R-RAMA or R-SQP is able to advise on all POM-VPS licenced products. The letter/s preceding the RAMA or SQP letters, represent the qualification category. I.e. R-RAMA OR R-SQP.

There are times where you may be advised to seek veterinary advice. Therefore, please do not be offended by this.

This may be for example (and not limited to):

  • A clinical assessment is needed or is recommended based on the information you have shared with an RAMA SQP.
  • The RAMA SQP is not satisfied that they have sufficient information in order to give the most appropriate advice.
  • You are seeking advice on a POM-V product (Veterinary Only Medicine – only available from a Vet).
  • Concerns/ Medical history or symptoms indicate that veterinary advice would be more appropriate.

We are proud to have three RAMA SQPS, Angela R-RAMA SQP, Jasmine R-RAMA E-SQP and Georgie L-RAMA L-SQP.
