Annual renewal for veterinary surgeons to be sent by email this year

14 January 2016

Next month, for the first time, we will be sending the annual renewal notice for veterinary surgeons by email and is asking members of the profession to make sure their details are up-to-date beforehand.

In previous years we have sent annual renewal notices to veterinary surgeons by post, however, from now on key communications about renewing registration will be made by email, except where we not hold an email address for an individual.

Nicola South, our Customer Experience Manager and Head of Registration, says: “The move towards electronic communications has been requested by the profession for some time and is also more environmentally friendly for the College.

“The annual renewal emails will be sent to members of the profession in the second half of February and, ahead of that, we ask that veterinary surgeons ensure that the email addresses we hold in our records are up-to-date and personal to them, so not, for example, generic practice email addresses.

“As with previous years, veterinary surgeons should use the online My Account login area to pay their annual renewal fee and make declarations from 15 February onwards, and we will still be accepting BACS transfers, cheques and pre-arranged Direct Debits.”

Any members of the profession who wish to continue to receive the annual renewal notice by post should contact the RCVS Registration Department on or before Monday 1 February on 020 7202 0707 or

Veterinary surgeons who wish to set up a Direct Debit can download a mandate form. This will need to be sent to our Finance Department by Friday 22 January in order for it to be set up in time for the annual renewal process.
