RCVS reports on 2018’s achievements

28 June 2019

The RCVS has published its Annual Report and Financial Statements for 2018, highlighting major achievements from over the course of the year as well as the spending, the allocation of funds and other financial matters.

Annual Report 2019Some of the work highlighted includes the launch of the Graduate Outcomes consultation, and the Edward Jenner Leadership Programme (a massive open online course) as well as the successful continuation of the Mind Matters Initiative, and the social media campaign run jointly with BVA on the advantages to the public of having their animal registered with a vet.

It also covers exploring an outcomes-based continuing professional development (CPD) approach, undertaking a review of Schedule 3 and the Veterinary Surgeons Act, and planning for the UK’s exit from the European Union, mitigating the potential risks in areas such as the veterinary workforce by conducting a survey of non-UK EU vets working in the UK.

In addition, the Report includes the College’s independently-audited finances with details of income and expenditure. Whilst the College is not a charity, the accounts have been prepared in accordance with the Charities Statement of Recommended Practice – a framework for charity accounting and reporting, which allows easier comparison with the finances of similar bodies.

The Report will be presented for adoption by members of the College at this year’s RCVS Day – the College’s Annual General Meeting and Awards Ceremony – on Friday 12 July 2019 at the Royal Institute of British Architects.
