As well as the existing accreditations, veterinary practices can also demonstrate the specific areas of practice in which they excel, by achieving optional Practice Standards Scheme Awards. They place emphasis on the factors that impact the standards of the services offered. The Awards demonstrate where practices provide services, above and beyond the stringent standards of accreditation and can help pet owners make a choice based on their needs and preferences.
So, we asked to be assessed for the Practice Standards Scheme Awards. Each award comprises of a variety of categories and a large number of challenging criteria, each of which must be assessed by a RCVS Inspector and are not lightly awarded. We requested assessment against all of the Awards we were eligible to apply for. After a rigorous two-day inspection, we were delighted to achieve Outstanding in every category! This means we have achieved a score of more than 80% for each of the criteria against which we were assessed.
We consider this to be a reflection of the hard work all of our staff members put in to ensuring that our standards of clinical and client care and the standards of the facilities are kept as high as possible.
