Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Regional Question Times and Practice Standards Surgeries

Three times a year, the Presidential team and members of RCVS and VN Councils hit the road to take questions from members of the veterinary practice team across the country.

The agenda for evening Regional Question Times is shaped by the attendees' questions, with hot topics discussed robustly by the panel and delegates.

All veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses within reasonable travelling distance of the venues are invited, and other members of the practice team are welcome to attend.

The meetings usually start with the opportunity to catch up with colleagues over a buffet supper from 6.30pm, then proceed to the meeting itself at 7.15pm, finishing around 10pm.

 

Upcoming RQTs

Practice Standards Scheme Surgeries

In the afternoon before Regional Question Time meetings we hold free Practice Standards Scheme sessions between 12 noon and 5pm.

A Practice Standards Scheme assessor is available for 45-minute private appointments to help answer your queries about the Scheme.

We also hold 20 minute surgeries at various events throughout the year.

We’ll be able to help explain the changes that have been made to the Scheme including: the modular approach, the introduction of the new optional ‘Awards’ and give advice on specific questions about module requirements.

The surgeries are open to existing PSS members and those considering joining the Scheme for the first time. Places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Upcoming PSS Surgeries:

  • BVNA Congress, Friday 7 and Saturday 8 October. Lead PSS assessor, Pam Mosedale will be holding PSS Surgeries for delegates attending Congress. 20 minute surgeries will be available from 10.30-15.40.
  • Regional Question Time in Winchester, Thursday 24 November. 45 minute surgeries will be available from 12.00-17.00.
