Honours & 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.

Our 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 2020 has now passed.

Adhering to the government guidance on reducing Covid-19 transmission through social distancing, it will not be possible to hold the event in person this year. Successful nominees for RCVS Honours & Awards will be invited to attend a virtual awards ceremony during the week commencing 7 September 2020.

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