York RCVS Information

RCVS Practice Standards

We are acredited by the RCVS under their Practice Standards scheme to offer reassurance that we meet their stringent standards.


Heres a short video to tell you a little more about the scheme

What is the Practice Standards Scheme?


 The RCVS Practice Standards Scheme (PSS) is a voluntary initiative to accredit veterinary practices in the UK. Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. It offers peace of mind to clients of accredited practices and a more informed choice to the animal-owning public.


How have we become accredited?


 To become accredited, practices volunteer for rigorous inspection every four years and will have met a range of minimum standards including hygiene, 24-hour emergency cover, staff training, certain types of equipment and cost estimation procedures. Practices are also subject to spot-checks between inspections.


Look for the logo!

For peace of mind, look for the RCVS accredited practice logo, which indicates that the practice has passed an independent inspection. This means high standards of care for animals and peace of mind for animal owners.
