RCVS Accredited

RCVS Practice Standards

We are proud to be an RCVS Accredited Small Animal Practice.

How The Scheme Works

  • The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) regulates the veterinary profession.
  • This includes individual veterinary surgeons and the practices in which the veterinary team works.
  • We are proud to be accredited under the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme, a voluntary quality assurance programme.
  • This involves passing rigorous inspections carried out by an experienced accreditor appointed by the RCVS.
  • Areas of accreditation include many, but as an example include areas such as hygiene, staff training, emergency cover, facilities and equipment, and clinical governance.

What it Means for You

  • Provides you with peace of mind, that you can beĀ assured of a high quality standardĀ of care throughout the practice.

Training Practice (TP)

We are proud to be an accredited Training Practice (TP) which allows us to give back to the veterinary industry by providing training facilities and support for trainee veterinary nurses

What it Means for You

  • Our nursing team is consistently involved in training, increasing skills and keeping up to date with best practice.
  • The training not only builds the skills and qualifications of trainee nurses but also reinforces and updates the knowledge of qualified veterinary nurses as clinical assessors.
  • Provides the comfort of knowing we are playing our role in helping develop nursing skills for the next generation of pets and their owners.
