We are now RCVS Accredited!

We are very excited and proud to announce that Farm Veterinary Solutions is now an approved member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme! 

This is a voluntary scheme aiming to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. As an accredited practice, we have passed an inspection focusing on a range of areas, including clinical governance, hygiene, the facilities we provide and many more. The practice will be re-inspected every four years and will be subject to spot-checks in the meantime to ensure we are keeping up with our high standards.

RCVS accreditation means that as a client you can rest assured that our practice offers a high quality of care both directly to our clients and behind the scenes too. 



What is the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons?

The RCVS has a twin function. It is the regulatory body for veterinary surgeons in the UK, which means that it deals with issues of professional misconduct, maintains the register of veterinary surgeons eligible to practise in the UK and assures standards of veterinary undergraduate education. 

It also has a 'Royal College' role. which means that it is responsible for post-graduate educational and veterinary nursing qualifications, and acts as an impartial source of information on animal health and welfare issues. 

What is the Practice Standards Scheme?

The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. It aims to establish a quality assurance framework to promote and maintain the highest standard of veterinary care, thus offering peace of mind to clients of accredited practices. The overriding concern of the RCVS is to 'Promote and sustain public confidence in veterinary medicines' and the Practice Standards Scheme is vital in meeting this aim. The regulatory function of the RCVS has always meant that users of veterinary services can be assured that their veterinary surgeon is properly qualified and fit to practise but, for the first time, the Scheme offers reassurance that accredited practice premises and those who work there also meet stringent standards. 

Do practices have to join the Scheme?

No, the Scheme is currently voluntary but it is hoped that, under a new Veterinary Surgeons Act, it will become mandatory. It is the only accreditation scheme for veterinary practices in the UK. 

What are the benefits of using an accredited practice?

Using an RCVS accredited practice means assured standards, facilities and practice management, which means peace of mind fr you and your animals.
