We're pleased to announce that smartphone and tablet users can now carry the Code and all its supporting guidance in their pockets, even when they are offline, thanks to our free Android and web apps.
The RCVS Code of Professional Conduct app allows owners of both android and Apple devices to access the RCVS Codes of Professional Conduct for both veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses, together with 27 chapters of supporting guidance.
Once the app is installed, both the Codes and the supporting guidance will be accessible, even when you don't have a network connection. So it should now be a lot easier to keep the Code on hand, even when you are out and about. If the Code is updated, the latest version will be available to download next time you are online.
To install the app on your android device, visit Google Play and look out for the shield icon. To install it on an Apple device, visit the Code pages in your device's internet browser, click on the app link in the Code tool box on the right hand side, and follow the simple instructions (NB the Code app is not available in the App Store).
We have also recently added the ability for website users to compile a single PDF of the Code and supporting guidance via www.rcvs.org.uk/code/, which is stamped with the date that it is downloaded.
