RCVS Accredited Vet Care

 

All of our surgeries provide RCVS accredited levels of veterinary care

The RCVS Standard

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative aiming to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices and a more informed choice to the animal-owning public.

To become accredited, practices volunteer for rigorous assessment every four years and will have met a range of minimum standards including:

 

  • hygiene
  • 24-hour emergency cover
  • staff training
  • certain types of equipment and cost estimation procedures.

 

Practices are also subject to spot-checks between assessments.
