Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Practice Standards Scheme

Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons RCVS Accredited Practice logoTo achieve RCVS accreditation the practice has undergone a rigorous inspection by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons known as the Practice Standards Scheme.

It is a voluntary initiative that offers reassurance that the practice has met stringent standards aimed at promoting the highest standards of veterinary care.

This independent assessment is undertaken every 4 years but we are subject to unannounced spot checks.
This means you can be sure of high standards of care for your animals and peace of mind that they are receiving excellent medical treatment.
