Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Practice Standards Scheme

Around half the practices in the UK are accredited under our voluntary Practice Standards Scheme, which quality assures practices and their facilities.

This section includes information about the Scheme that is primarily aimed at practices. Users of veterinary practices may find the information in our animal owners website more useful. (Please note that this link will open in a new window.)
