RCVS-AccreditedWhat's the RCVS?

The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) regulates the veterinary profession. This includes individual veterinary surgeons and, more recently the practices in which the veterinary team works. You might have seen MRCVS after a vet's name - that means they are a member of the RCVS and qualified to practise in the uk.

What's RCVS accreditation?

Practices can become accredited under the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme, a voluntary quality assurance programme.

To be accredited, practices must pass a rigorous inspection carried out by an experienced veterinary surgeon. Areas covered include hygiene, health & safety, and the facilities and equipment provided, to name just a few of the many criteria.

  • An accredited practice is inspected every four years.
  • It must certify annually that it continues to meet the standards.
  • It may be subject to spot- checks between full inspections.
