Honours & Awards

RCVS Honours and Awards: A chance to recognise outstanding achievement

The public expects veterinary professionals to meet high standards. Sometimes, however, individuals far exceed expectation, and we feel this ought to be recognised.

Stephen May and Dr Alemayehu HailemariamOur Honours & Awards recognise and celebrate a breadth of achievement across the veterinary world and encompass, for example, veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses and laypeople who have contributed to the health and welfare of animals, to the veterinary profession as a whole or public health.

If you know someone whose achievements are outstanding and who has worked above-and-beyond the call of duty in the fields of veterinary medicine or science, or related areas, you can use the RCVS Honours & Awards to try and ensure that they are considered for wider recognition.

The deadline for putting forward nominations for 2019 has now passed. Successful nominees for RCVS Honours & Awards will be invited to attend Royal College Day - our Annual General Meeting and awards ceremony - on Friday 12 July 2019.

Below is a video featuring footage of and interviews with some of the 2018 Honours & Awards recipients at this year's Royal College Day.
