Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons- Practice Standards Scheme
RCVS Practice Standards Scheme- What does this mean to you?
In October 2014, Greenmount Veterinary Clinics became an approved practice under the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Practice Standards Scheme.
Through setting standards and carrying out regular inspections, the Scheme aims to promote and maintain the highest standards of veterinary care. We underwent rigorous testing and had to comply with the standards and Legal requirements as set out in the RCVS Code of Professional Conduct.
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.
What did the RCVS inspectors say about our clinic?
I am pleased to attach the outcome of your inspection carried out by Harvey Locke.
Mr Locke made the following comments:
"I would like to thank practice owner Ewing Walker for his warm welcome and for spending the day accompanying me on the inspection. I was impressed with the organisation of the practice and the large amount of work they had put into the preparation for the practice standards accreditation. I was also impressed by the excellent surgical facilities that enable them to provide a high quality orthopaedic and ophthalmology referral service."
Harvey Locke RCVS Practice Standards Inspector. Past British Veterinary Association President.
Thank you for the time and effort you have spent preparing for this inspection.
Senior Practice Standards Officer”
