Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons


RCVS Day is held in July each year and falls into two parts: the Annual General Meeting and the awards ceremony.

The day usually starts at around 10am with the AGM, which sees the appointment of new members of RCVS Council and the Veterinary Nurses Council. The AGM is also the opportunity for members to ask questions.

The presentation of RCVS awards, including Honorary Associateships, Fellowships, veterinary diplomas and veterinary nursing diplomas is made following the AGM.

The awards are conferred by the outgoing President who also gives an address reflecting on their year of tenure.

This is followed by the investiture of the new President and Presidential team.

A talk is usually given by one or more guest speakers, and the event culminates in the early afternoon with a fork luncheon.

RCVS Day 2017 will take place on Friday 7 July, at the Royal Insitute of British Architects. To request a ticket please contact Emma Lockley (
