WHAT IS RCVS ACCREDITATION?
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons is the organisation which is responsible for the regulation of Veterinary Surgeons in the United Kingdom.
RCVS accreditation is voluntary, you do not have to be an accredited practice in order for you to be a good veterinary practice. However, becoming an accredited practice takes a lot of work and requires the practice to pass a rigorous inspection by an independent Inspector appointed and trained by the RCVS. A practice which submits itself to this process is likely to take the service it supplies to its clients very seriously.
When the practice becomes accredited the RCVS provides leaflets to be handed out to clients, below is the information taken from the leaflets.
